Mazda’s best-selling SUV in history gets a makeover to continue to set the way forward for Hiroshima. The Mazda CX-5 2022 improves in the aesthetic and mechanical section and increases the safety equipment along with three new finishes.
* The new Mazda CX-5 2022 debuts three trim levels, the one in the image is the Signature.
Mazda is one of those firms with its own personality, built on the challenges it has overcome throughout its history. Their first steps as a company were in the cork sector, from which they were preparing to leave as car builders when the Hiroshima bomb fell. Miraculously, the factory was hardly damaged and they could be part of the reconstruction in record time of a population marked by the spirit of improvement or Mukainada (as they call it). The challenge has accompanied them throughout their evolution as a firm, always risky and pioneering, with projects such as the rotary engine.
That irreverent block led them to win the laurel in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and to establish themselves as a special manufacturer, wanting to change the world. With the aim of continuing to revolutionize the market, Mazda engineers have turned their full attention to safety. Thanks to the presence of cameras and radars, the new Mazda CX-5 is able to detect potential dangers to avoid collisions and, if this is not possible, to minimize the severity of accidents.
* The CX-5 2022 incorporates new driver assistance and safety systems.
Each firm has its own system of driving and safety aids (ADAS), called i-Activsense in Mazda’s case. In this latest release, the CX-5 incorporates Cruise and Traffic Assist (CTS) that reduces the fatigue of driving in a caravan situation by assisting the force of the steering and brake pedal. This last function joins the already existing aids, such as the blind spot control, which warns when we have a vehicle too close in a lane change, with rear traffic detection.
The brake assistance system in the city is very useful for the most urbanites. This SUV will be aware of the speed and the distance that we carry with the cars in front to activate a possible emergency braking or brake if it determines that a collision is going to occur at low speed. You can discover more in the configurator of your next Mazda CX-5 2022.
* The CX-5 2022 is capable of detecting pedestrians and performing low speed emergency braking.
In addition, thanks to an advanced camera it takes into account pedestrians even when driving at night. Safer night traffic since it has introduced the latest adaptive LED headlights, which use 12 individual LED modules to play with the light beam depending on the traffic and other users. A series of advances that have led the Mazda CX-5 2022 to be the only mid-size SUV to pass, with a note, the latest tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, now more restrictive and with a side impact test. .
* The Newground trim level stands out for its all-terrain and adventurous spirit.
That avant-garde spirit also carries over into the Kodo design language, introduced more than ten years ago. An almost natural and purely sensual image that continues to this day, presenting itself as the elegance of purity in the new Mazda CX-5 2022. Mazda’s best-selling SUV in the world now has a battery of improvements focused on printing a premium character to the model. The Japanese have not lost the opportunity to emphasize the adventurous and distinctive character of the Mazda CX-5 buyer, adding three new versions, Newground, Homura and Signature, to the portfolio of finishes.
The Kodo language seeks to breathe soul into car design through the pure aesthetics of ancient Japan. Based on that mantra, Mazda models are conceived under the concept of “Soul of Movement” and hence they thrill just by looking at them and seem to come to life with their reflections. A solution that generates connection with the driver.
A link that continues to be present in the new Mazda CX-5 2022, which features the characteristic wing-shaped grille but with a greater three-dimensional effect. The eyes of the set, which are the light groups, are sharp and the bodywork presents a new tonality called Zircon Sand. The connection with the CX-5 is achieved through its finishes, which seek to fit in with personalities as divergent as they are active. The firm offers three new versions (Signature, Newground and Homura) that complete the existing ones: Origin, Evolution and Zenith.
* The lime green tone of the grille identifies it as a Mazda CX-5 Newground.
The Newground trim level, developed from the Evolution model, was designed for the most adventurous and passionate customers of outdoor sports. Hence, it looks clear nods to the more traditional crossover design, with silver-tone lower bumpers and door trims. The black mirrors provide a more mature look, which goes well with the 19-inch diamond-cut wheels and the grille lime. In the passenger compartment, the imitation leather and suede upholstery stands out, with stitching in that same file.
* The Signature version uses genuine wood inserts for the dashboard and doors.
The Homura version goes a step further in the sportiness and aerodynamics of the set, focusing on printing that youthful and daring side to Mazda’s midsize SUV. Based on the Zenith trim, this pick comes with 19-inch silver alloy wheels and black leather for the steering wheel, gear knob and decorated panels, all with red stitching.
The Signature finish goes a step further in the equipment and sophistication implanted in the 2022 CX-5. It will be available in a single exterior color to emphasize the Kodo design shapes, which are matched to 19-inch silver-tone alloy wheels. sparkly. Inside, that message of elegance will continue, with specific Nappa brown leather upholstery and genuine wood trim on the dashboard and doors.
* Mazda engines are more efficient thanks to cylinder cut-off technology.
The evolution of the Mazda CX-5 does not remain on the surface, it also tries to print a unique driving experience. For this, they have for the first time the driving mode selector in their gasoline versions, which allow modifying the response of the block and even its off-road capabilities in the case of being a CX-5 with i-Activ AWD all-wheel drive.
The revision in the model platform allows the introduction of state-of-the-art technology, as well as less elastic vibration and greater soundproofing of the cabin. This ensures a Mazda CX-5 that is more comfortable on the road, capable of absorbing uneven road surfaces and reducing driver fatigue.
A series of improvements including the two Skyactiv-G engines of 165 and 194 hp with cylinder deactivation system. This technology, key to improving efficiency in times of low demand or sailing, significantly reduces the consumption of the new Mazda CX-5. Something that is repeated in the 150 and 184 hp diesel mechanics that, as with gasoline, there is the possibility of choosing between manual and six-speed automatic transmission, in addition to being available the i-ACTIV AWD all-wheel drive system in the more performance.
