Mazda CX-5 Club Malaysia - MCCM

The Mazda CX-5 is a compact/small-family crossover SUV produced by Mazda starting in 2012 for the 2013 model year lineup. It is Mazda's first car featuring the new KODO - Soul of Motion Design language first shown in the Shinari concept vehicle in May 2010. It is also the first vehicle featuring the company's full Skyactiv Technology suite, featuring a rigid, lightweight platform, combined with a new series of efficient engines and transmissions resulting in reduced emissions and fuel consumption. The Skyactiv Engine and Transmission Technologies were released in the 2012 Mazda3 compact sedan and hatchback. The model was first shown at the September 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The CX-5 is available with both front and all-wheel drive, powered by a 2.0 petrol four-cylinder engine (PE-VPS) sporting 162 bhp (121 kW; 164 PS)/155 lb·ft (210 N·m) averaging an estimated 28 mpg-imp (10 L/100 km; 23 mpg-US) emitting around 139 g/km. It will also be available with a 2.2 liter two-stage turbocharged diesel (SH-VPTS) with either 147 bhp (110 kW; 149 PS)/280 lb·ft (380 N·m) or 173 bhp (129 kW; 175 PS)/310 lb·ft (420 N·m), emitting an estimated 119 and 139 g/km, respectively. The EPA rated the CX-5's gas mileage as the best in its class, averaging 26mpg city and 35mpg highway, which Mazda claims is the best mileage of any non-hybrid SUV. Fuel consumption for the entry-level diesel engine with front wheel drive is 63 mpg-imp (4.5 L/100 km; 52 mpg-US).

The Mazda CX-5 replaces the utilitarian Mazda Tribute in the compact SUV segment which had become among Mazda's less charismatic offerings and the Mazda CX-7.
