Mazda Malaysia today presented the New CX-5, which was recently previewed at the plant in Kulim, State of Kedah. The second-generation Mazda CX-5 has a starting price tag of RM 138,438.31 (with insurance) and available in three variants: 2.0G (GL/GLS), 2.5G 2WD and 2.2D (2WD/4WD).
In a nutshell, the CX-5 has a fresh front fascia, highllghted by the slim headlights, chromed signature wing. New two-layer moulded outer lens make for a sexy rear on the CX-5.
Inside, the new CX-5 takes up a more symmetrical dashboard layout that focuses on driver orientation. The commander console is elevated, surrounding the lower body for better ergonomics. To effectively promote ergonomics, the driver=centric commander console gives a sense of toughness, stability and easy access to driver and front passenger.
The 7-inch full color touchscreen display for the MZD CONNECT Infotainment has been redesigned to add a new appeal to the interior. Meanwhile, the display has been repositioned to the top of the dashboard, close to the driver’s natural line of sight. When it comes to posh and refinement, the new Mazda CX-5’s interior covers 85% soft touch with genuine leather stitching, wood-like elements and ‘bling-bling’ finishes.
Apart from the sleek exterior and interior refinements, the CX-5’s G-Vectoring Control (GVC) and I-ACTIVSENSE headline the SUV’s safety features package, along with relevant driver’s assistive suite consisting Adaptive LED Headlights (ALH), Adaptive Front-Lighting System (AFS), Smart City Brake System (SCBS), Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Lane-Keep Assist System (LAS) and Driver Attention Alert (DAA).
