A connection from the very first touch — passed from the hands of the craftsmen who created it. This is the philosophy behind Mazda’s human-centric design for crafting the interior of the 2017 Mazda CX-5 crossover. Thoughtfully selected textures and finishes. Perfect positioning of door handles and controls. An expansive and intuitive space designed equally for driving enjoyment and rejuvenation. For both its driver and passengers.
Can a compact SUV so in tune with drivers double as a haven…
Can a compact SUV so in tune with drivers double as a haven for passengers? It’s possible when you go beyond the predictable. Like providing your guests with ample entrance and exit room, available heated rear seats, rear air conditioning vents, and USB ports in the front and rear center armrests that keep everyone comfortable and connected. And on longer drives, the rear seats recline for added comfort. Our aim is to always exceed expectations. What else would you expect from Mazda?
The newly available Power Liftgate1…
The newly available Power Liftgate2 opens and closes at your command with either the available Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry button, or a button located inside the driver’s cabin. Plus, a standard easy-release 40/20/40 split fold-down rear seatback lets you customize seating for five, or accommodates up to 59.6 cubic feet of cargo space.
The interior of the all-new CX-5 is even quieter…
The interior of the all-new CX-5 is even quieter than its predecessor. 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 ultra-clear sounds emitted from the available Bose® Centerpoint® 2 Surround Sound System with AudioPilot® 2, your drive is now even more relaxing.
Weather and road conditions can change in an instant. That’s why available i-ACTIV AWD® predicts 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.
Small details can make the biggest impact…
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 new technology standard on the all-new 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 a driver will notice is how great the drive actually is. We wouldn’t have it any other way.Learn More

ACTIVE DRIVING DISPLAY
With the available intuitive Active Driving Display, vital information such as vehicle status, current speed, and route guidance is projected onto the windshield. Pertinent data is positioned in your line of sight and allows you to better adjust your focus—ultimately minimizing distractions while driving. Is it possible for something to transport you without moving? It is, when it’s designed for you, the driver.
SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY is at the center…
SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY is at the center of the Mazda driving experience, consisting of the body and chassis. The framework incorporates ultra-high tensile-strength steel in critical areas to help make it lighter, yet stronger — ultimately making for a more enjoyable drive.Learn More
Some automakers create paint colors and textures that compete with the form of their car. We take a completely different approach. One of our goals for the all-new CX-5 was to create a color that complemented every curve, resulting in a sense of movement. Even at a standstill. The new Soul Red Crystal Metallic paint does just that.
Based on front camera identification…
TRAFFIC SIGN RECOGNITION
Based on front camera identification in conjunction with navigation data, Traffic Sign Recognition3 recognizes and displays traffic signs such as Stop, Speed Limit and Do Not Enter. Alerts are easily viewable at driver’s eye level in the Active Driving Display.
Available Mazda Radar Cruise Control…
MAZDA RADAR CRUISE CONTROL
Available Mazda Radar Cruise Control4 with Stop & Go function works within a set speed range to help maintain a safe following distance from the car ahead, alerting you when it senses your vehicle fast approaching. If the vehicle ahead stops, your vehicle will automatically stop and hold in a standing start until you resume driving. An alert function lets you know when the car ahead has pulled away.
When travelling at low speeds...
SMART CITY BRAKE SUPPORT
When travelling at low speeds, this system detects objects ahead. If an impact is predicted, the system will adjust the brake pads closer to the disc for faster braking, or apply the brakes if you’re unable to.5
At higher speeds, this system senses traffic ahead and alerts when braking is immediately necessary. If the sensor determines that a collision is unavoidable, the automatic brake control will engage.6
Our Adaptive Front-lighting System is specifically designed to help you see around corners at night. As you turn into a corner, the headlights pivot up to 15 degrees in the direction of your turn,improving visibility and allowing you to spot potential hazards and dangers ahead. High Beam Control automatically adjusts the headlight beams from low to high as traffic and road conditions allow.
Mazda’s Lane Departure Warning System7 alerts you when you’re unintentionally about to depart from your lane at a speed of approximately 37 mph or higher. You can also benefit from our Lane-keep Assist System8, which performs minor steering corrections to re-center your vehicle in its lane upon sensing an unintentional lane departure.
As you reverse, this system promptly alerts you on the back-up monitor, as well as on the side view mirrors, when it detects a vehicle approaching from the side.9
Available radar sensors help detect and alert when objects are in your left and right blind spots. They also warn when fast-approaching vehicles are about to enter a blind spot from further behind.10
What sets Mazda design apart from other brands…
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.WHY MAZDA DESIGN
An artful expression of bold simplicity...
MAZDA’S TAKUMI CRAFTSMEN
An artful expression of bold simplicity. A design consisting of two opposing forces, uniting in refined power in motion. This was the goal for the Mazda Takumi craftsmen in creating the all-new CX-5. To achieve this, the Takumi minimized lines and transitions between body surfaces. The result does more than simply change the expression of light as it reflects off the body. The result is our most indulgent CX-5 yet.WHY MAZDA DESIGN

JINBA ITTAI: MAZDA ONENESS
In Japan, the oneness between a horse and its rider—or Jinba Ittai—inspires Mazda to create cars that become a natural extension of a driver’s mind and body. To create this oneness between car and driver, the all-new CX-5 encompasses such details as driver’s seat positioning and steering wheel location. Because Driving Matters, so does creating perfect harmony between car and driver.LEARN MORE
Every angle and aspect of this best-selling CUV has been improved to make driving better, thanks to over 250 enhancements. With features like a quieter cabin and available stunning Metal Wood trim, Mazda designers and engineers accomplished it all without sacrificing driving dynamics. As a result, this carefully crafted and refined CX-5 achieves the impossible: the perfect unity of versatility, spaciousness, innovation and impressive efficiency, with up to an EPA-estimated 31 highway MPG.11
