Mazda has unveiled several exciting upgrades to the hugely popular CX-5. Building on the award-winning style, cabin, and chassis of the current SUV, the new model is set to be the best yet.
What exactly can you expect from the updates? Read on to learn more.
The 2023 CX-5 follows Mazda’s unique Kodo Design philosophy, for a modern and elegant look.
It has a bold, muscular stance, and elements such as a large 3D grille and redesigned headlights add to its sporty aesthetic.
The model will also be available in the classy Rhodium White paint finish, which made its debut on the flagship Mazda CX-60 SUV.
The interior of the CX-5 feels truly premium. High-quality materials have been used throughout, and plenty of handy equipment comes as standard.
Technology upgrades inside the 2023 CX-5 include the introduction of wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, with the front USB ports changed to USB-C ports.
Trims and Specifications
Five trim levels are available – each with a distinct style and personality. Choose from Centre-Line, Newground, Exclusive-Line, Homura, and Takumi depending on your individual requirements.
It’s also worth noting that the 2023 model will see the introduction of mild hybrid technology across all petrol variants, which should see average C02 reductions of around 9g/km.
The entry-level Centre-Line CX-5 comes with either the 165ps e-Skyactiv G petrol, or 150ps Skyactiv-D engine.
Moving up the range, the Newground trim comes exclusively with the 165ps e-Skyactiv G engine. Some rugged styling features help it stand out from the crowd, such as black door mirrors, 19-inch black diamond cut alloy wheels, and subtle lime green accents in the grille.
The Exclusive-Line is expected to be the best seller in the UK. This model comes with a choice of 165ps e-Skyactiv G petrol, or 150ps and 184ps Skyactiv-D diesel engine options, with the diesel offering in front or all-wheel drive.
The Homura trim has a unique, sporty aesthetic. Enjoy gloss black detailing around the vehicle, red accents within the grille, and 19-inch black alloy wheels. It comes with the 165ps e-Skyactiv G petrol engine with front wheel drive.
