Mazda reveals revised CX-5 with drive improvements and new trim levels

The brand’s largest SUV also promises a raft of new technology

Mazda has revealed a revised version of its popular CX-5 SUV – the largest model the brand sells in Europe. 

It’s an update that focuses on styling tweaks, improvements to the way it drives and technology, with a key addition being a new ‘Mazda Intelligent Drive Select’ that enables drivers to switch between various settings, while models fitted with all-wheel-drive also get an ‘Off-Road Mode’.

The CX-5’s underpinnings have been revised too, with Mazda saying this allows for upgrades to the suspension to enhance ride comfort, while road noise is also said to be reduced.

Though the CX-5’s styling changes aren’t huge, revisions to look out for include a new 3D-effect front grille and redesigned front and rear lights. There’s also a new Zircon Sand colour available. 

Three new trim levels join the CX-5 line-up, with the main addition being a Newground version that offers more rugged styling thanks to its silver underbody protection, black door mirrors and different alloy wheel designs. Inside, it also comes with suede seats and lime green accents. 

A Sport Black version then offers sportier looks thanks to its floss black styling, large alloy wheels and red accents, while a top GT Sport trim aims to offer more elegance with its bright silver 19-inch alloy wheels, Nappa leather upholstery and wooden interior trim.

New technology available includes wireless smartphone charging, upgraded adaptive LED headlights and ‘Cruising & Traffic Support’ that aims to reduce fatigue in slow-moving traffic or congestion. 

Mazda is set to confirm prices of the updated CX-5 later this autumn, with the SUV due to go on sale at the start of 2022.
