Mazda is close to updating its CX-5, with the new Mazda CX-5 2022 which will be available in Europe later this year. Let’s go and discover the news of this awaited generation.
In the foreground we find the new driving selector Mi-Drive (Mazda Intelligent Drive), which with the simple touch of a command allows the driver to quickly change driving modes, so as to always have the most appropriate ones. Some i-Active AWD trim levels also have the advantage of one Off-road mode for dirt and slippery surfaces. The adoption of the new generation of Mazda’s Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture, a platform that compared to the past sees improved body, suspension and seats.
The noise of the road surface has also been significantly reduced, especially on uneven surfaces such as dirt roads. The front of the new Mazda CX-5 is more powerful, in addition, the front and rear light clusters have been redesigned and the paint has been added to the bodywork Zircon Sand. The lower part of the bumpers and the door trims are now silver, the rear view mirrors are black and the grille has accents in lime green, and finally the 19 ”wheels have black carvings.
To underline the presence of updated range of i-Activsense systems with Cruising & Traffic Support (CTS), which supports traffic in traffic and significantly reduces the stress of the driver. We close with the adaptive front LED headlights (ALH) which have been further evolved, with a more precise distribution of the light beam. So Mazda improved one of its best-selling models (which already convinced us in 2021: here is our test of the Mazda CX-5 2021 Homura), which alone accounts for around 21% of the brand’s annual sales across Europe. We are looking forward to being able to test it in the field.
