SUPERIOR SOUND

We crafted a superbly quiet cabin, so you hear more of what you want to hear. Mazda engineers incorporated unique sound-deadening materials such as sound-insulating glass and extensive seal insulation — resulting in a significant dulling of unwelcome road noise. Conversations are clearer. Engine noise and vibrations are diminished. So whether you’re enjoying the peace and quiet of driving alone, talking with your passengers or enjoying the ultra-clear sounds emitted from the available Bose® 10-speaker audio sound system with Centerpoint® 2 and AudioPilot® 2, your drive is even more relaxing.

INNOVATIONS THAT MAKE DRIVING BETTER

PREDICTIVE i-ACTIV AWD®

RENDERING THE GREAT UNKNOWN, KNOWN

Weather and road conditions can change in an instant. That’s why available i-ACTIV AWD® helps predict when all-wheel drive might be needed, monitoring everything from outside temperature to throttle input and braking patterns. It then preemptively optimizes torque distribution to help curb traction loss. You may never even notice the change. Which is exactly what Mazda intended.

SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS WITH G-VECTORING CONTROL

Small details can make the biggest impact. This kind of thinking inspired Mazda engineers to spend years developing SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control — a subtle technology standard on the CX-5, and designed to help achieve a smoother, less fatiguing drive. When cornering, on initial turn-in and throughout, the system works seamlessly by adjusting power delivery and shifting vehicle weight. The only thing the driver will notice is a great drive. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

Improved fuel efficiency. Yes, it’s possible to optimize an already optimized gas powertrain.

EXTERIOR

FORM AND FUNCTION IN PERFECT HARMONY

KODO DESIGN

A BODY THAT EMBODIES MOTION

What sets Mazda design apart from other brands is our obsession with the ultimate form of beauty. Mazda’s KODO: “Soul of Motion” design philosophy is based on creating cars that embody the dynamic beauty of life — cars that visually suggest different expressions of this energy. At Mazda, designers never start by sketching a car. Their first step is to create an ideal form. We call this process Exploratory Preparation. Mazda designers create objects with different forms, exploring how they move people’s hearts. We believe that a form sincerely and painstakingly made by human hands gets a soul. Because we don’t just make cars. We breathe life into art forms.

SOUL RED CRYSTAL METALLIC PAINT

We take a unique approach to creating our paint colors. One of our goals for the CX-5 was to design a color that complemented every curve and angle, giving this stylish compact SUV even more depth, richness and luster. Our Soul Red Crystal Metallic paint does just that. Its unique three-layer paint process uses the changing light to create a sense of movement, even at a standstill.
