2016 Mazda CX-5 Sees More Standard Features

2015 was great for Mazda and the automaker is looking to keep that trend moving upward in the New Year! That’s why the 2016 Mazda CX-5 is getting a mid-model-year update shortly after its mid-cycle refresh for the 2016 model year. Dubbed “2016.5,” the model brings more standard equipment to the road.

2016 Mazda CX-5

All CX-5 crossover models are getting a backup camera free-of-charge provided they’re equipped with an automatic transmission. That means every model except the base Sport, with a standard six-speed manual, will come with the $400 backup camera without adding to the cost of the vehicle. Mazda know’s how to keep deals with the customer in mind.

The Rear View Camera package includes a seven-inch touchscreen audio system, which is a standard feature as well. Upper-level trims already have the backup camera as a standard feature, but Mazda isn’t forgetting them in all of this love!

The upper-level CX-5 trims will receive navigation as a standard feature. The Touring model now includes heated front seats as a standard feature. Previously, the upper-level models included at $1,625 Technology package. Now, with navigation as a standard feature, that price has dropped $400 to $1,275.

Make sure to stop on by if you have any question. Now let’s be honest, that’s a steal if you ask anyone here at Parks Mazda!

Mazda CX-5 Facelift Leaked Before LA Auto Show Debut

In the car industry, sometimes, debuts don’t go exactly as planned. This was the case for Mazda’s most recent debut of the newly redesigned CX-5. The Mazda CX-5 facelift leaked mere weeks before the LA Auto Show later this month, giving the world a glimpse of the Japanese carmaker’s new design. The images, which appear to be scanned from a brochure, have taken over the internet, showing us exactly what we can expect from this rejuvenated model and we have to say—we really like what we see.

The CX-5 facelift appears to include a new grille with horizontal bars, making the front end look slightly wider than the last model. LED headlamps also make an appearance, looking similar to those that recently showed up on the new Mazda2. The CX-5 even has new fog light surrounds, new taillight graphics, and brand new wheels.

While we won’t get an idea of what the newly redesigned interior looks like, we can guess it looks just as great as the exterior. Check back to Parks Mazda later this month to see news on the official debut of the Mazda CX-5!

2015 Mazda CX-5 Out-Classes Competition with Technology and Design

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.

Mazda CX-5 Outpaces Competition with 5-Star Safety Rating from NHTSA

For the 2015 model, the Mazda CX-5 has a reputation to uphold when it comes to safety. After earning a Top Safety Pick+ from the IIHS for the 2014 model, nothing less than a repeat performance would be acceptable. The pressure was on—and Mazda delivered in a big way. While the new CX-5 has not been rated by the IIHS yet, it’s already earned a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA, the highest rating given out by the administration. The rating applies to both front-wheel and all-wheel-drive models of the 2015 CX-5.

The compact crossover achieved five-star ratings in both the front and side crash tests and a four-star rating in the rollover crash test to add up to the overall five-star rating. These ratings put the CX-5 ahead of the crossover field early for the 2015 model year, beating out rivals like the Ford Escape and Toyota RAV4 that only achieved four-star overall ratings from the NHTSA.2015 Mazda CX-5 earns 5-star safety rating

The Mazda CX-5 boasts an intelligent overall design, but it’s also loaded with special safety features, some of which—antilock brakes, daytime running lights, and an electronic stability control system, for instance—come standard on the 2015 model. Plus, the CX-5 offers optional features like a rearview camera, the Smart City Brake Support system, and our favorite here at Parks Mazda, the Adaptive Front-Lighting System, which allows the headlights to turn to better illuminate curves on dark, dangerous roads.
