The CX-5 accounts for around a quarter of Mazda’s global sales. This makes it a very important car for the Japanese manufacturer. For 2017 they have introduced the all new CX-5 which becomes available at Mazda Dealers countrywide on the 1st of June.
Changes to the 2017 CX-5 include LED head and front fog lamps, auto headlamp leveling, newly designed 17” alloy wheels, rear ventilation, USB for the rear centre armrest and auto door lock from the Active petrol derivative.

On the inside, the uprated cabin insulation and windshield projected head-up display have been added.
