The Mazda CX-5, while still a relatively new model, received a redesign for the 2015 model, making it an even more competitive model in the compact crossover class than before. For the 2015 Mazda CX-5, the Japanese automaker made no secret of its aggressive strategy—the vehicle’s “Soul of Motion” design language specifically aims to imitate a predator’s stance as it stalks its prey. So, watch out, Mazda competitors, because the CX-5 is very much on the prowl.
The CX-5, Mazda’s first vehicle designed under the full umbrella of “Skyactiv” technology, uses that technology to make it one of the most fuel-efficient and capable vehicles in the compact crossover segment. The CX-5 offers two Skyactiv engine options—2.0L and 2.5L variants—both of which get better fuel economy than any other SUV, and that includes hybrids. Plus, the 2.0L engine churns out 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque.
The Mazda’s technological advancements don’t stop under the hood, though; the CX-5 also boasts safety features like Smart City Brake Support and Blind Spot Monitoring which helped it achieve a 2014 Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS. Overall, the redesigned CX-5 is one of the roomiest, safest, most efficient, and even most affordable crossovers on the road, so come see us at Parks Mazda today to check this great compact out for yourself.
