It’s been rumored — and promised — for a long time, but Mazda finally … finally … introduced its much-anticipated diesel engine at the 2019 New York International Auto Show.
This preview didn’t go entirely according to plan.
Mazda flew us up to Whistler, British Columbia — site of the 2010 Winter Olympics — to demonstrate its “predictive” i-ACTIV all-wheel-drive system, introduce a newly available turbocharged engine in the CX-5 line, and let us experience all three of its crossovers in slippery, snowy conditions. The first and last, of course, depended on the cooperation of Mother Nature, and she accommodated — a little too generously, as it turned out.
Already one of our favorite compact crossovers, Mazda’s CX-5 gets a redesign for 2017 that – in virtually every measure – makes it a better choice than ever.
The official launch of the redesigned-for-2017 Mazda CX-5 is just around the corner; it’s slated to begin arriving in dealerships later this spring. The new CX-5 represents an evolution of Mazda’s KODO—Soul of Motion design theme, a motif that debuted on the Mazda Shinari concept car of 2010. The new bodywork also bears an obvious family resemblance to the CX-5’s larger sibling—the redesigned-for-2016 Mazda CX-9 midsize SUV.
LOS ANGELES–Mazda displayed the new second generation of its compact crossover SUV at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. The 2017 CX-5 is a fully redesigned model; though it looks to differ little in overall size from its predecessor, Mazda says it has a lower center of gravity and a slightly wider track. Styling is an evolution of Mazda’s KODO—Soul of Motion motif, and picks up a cue or two from Mazda’s all-new 2016 CX-9 midsize SUV.
