KUALA LUMPUR, June 3 — Looking for a new crossover vehicle with eco-friendly and fuel-efficient features? Introducing the new Mazda CX-5 which offers a pleasant driving experience without compromising safety or sustainability.
First in its generation, the CX-5 is using the Mazda’s newly-developed SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY: re-engineered engines, transmissions, bodies and chassis and it employs the “KODO — Soul of Motion” design theme.
Available in 2WD and Intelligent 4WD modes with a variety of appointments to suit any lifestyle, the Mazda CX-5 is adaptable to the needs of the driver.
The All-Wheel Drive variant has a system with reduced weight and minimisation of energy losses through controlled torque distribution, for better fuel efficiency.
Aesthetics-wise, the Mazda CX-5 features a new “signature wing” grille which promotes strength and depth. The Mazda CX-5 delivers SUV-like sturdiness and functionality, and enhanced field of view and agility.
In the driver’s seat, the cockpit-like interior exudes sportiness while the steering wheel and control systems offer complete manageability.
Tactile materials and beautiful contrasts make up the finishing in the cabin. The Mazda CX-5’s lightweight seats are ergonomically designed for long-distance comfort.
The wheelbase in the cabin provides additional space, seating five comfortably. The “Karakuri” feature allows extra rear legroom, knee clearance and foot space that includes a 40/20/40-split fold-flat second row, and it uses the industry’s first remote release levers.
Fitted with the latest version of Mazda’s “Karakuri” tonneau cover, which is linked to its tailgate — loading and unloading is easier — and there is plenty of room to spare.
The Mazda CX-5 is designed to give the driver the highest eye points and widest field of vision, while delivering the best position for pedal operation.
For the best seating position, the power adjustable driver seat can be angled six or eight ways with power lumbar support, heater function and easy-to-reach controls.
The Maxda CX-5 also provides best-in-class infotainment features such as a 5.8-inch touch screen, AUX, USB, Bluetooth connectivity, iPod playback, premium nine-speaker Bose Centerpoint Surround Sound System, climate control system, TomTom-based navigation system and available HD Radio Technology featuring advanced audio and data features.
To ensure maximum safety, the Maxda CX-5 provides ESS, DSC/TSC, optional Adaptive Front-Lighting System (AFLS) with auto-levelling bi-xenon headlamps and Day-Running Light.
Equipped with side and curtain airbag, 1,800MPa ultra-high tensile steel, seats with anti-whiplash architecture, seatbelts with pretensioners and standard front, side and side curtain airbags, bumper, hood, body cowl and instrument panel optimised to prevent or reduce injury to pedestrians.
Bermaz Motor Sdn Bhd, the exclusive distributor of Mazda CX-5, is offering in-total vehicle protection to ensure it always looks its best — from body paintwork, glass, alloy and interior seat fabric.
Each CX-5 is treated with TRIBOS, a durable surface protection system that was used first in the marine sector to enhance and preserve the gloss and colour of superyacht surfaces. The Mazda CX-5 is fully imported from Japan and it comes in two variants: the 4x2 and 4x4 — retailing at RM155,219.20 and RM165,219.20 respectively (on the road without insurance).
