Featuring Mazda's Kodo – Soul of Motion design philosophy that is rooted in the refined elegance of Japanese aesthetics, the CX-5 gets a new face with three-dimensional elements with the grille positioned above the redesigned lower bumper with a smaller centre intake.

The distinctive signature wing that extends outwards from the grille have been restyled with surface forms.

Both front and rear designs feature four oblong LED lamps that exudes greater sportiness and emphasising the CX-5’s wide and planted stance.


The variants with 2.0-litre engines are equipped with 17-inch wheels while the other engine types get 19-inch alloy wheels with new styling.

The Skyactiv Vehicle Architecture technologies, which has been applied to the CX-5, further evolves the body, suspension and seats to provide a more natural and comfortable experience of driving.

This technological enhancement increases the rigidity of the lateral frame near its body centre with a damping wellbond structure for vibration suppression and better vehicle manoeuvrability.

The CX-5's springs and dampers characteristics have been improved to provide ride comfort and driving quality by mitigating the occupants' head forward pitching when driven over bumps.

The CX-5's seats have been redesigned to increase comfort and reduce the occupants' body sway by optimising its structure and cushion flex.

They also hold the occupants' spine in an S-shaped curve, allowing the spine to flex in response to vibration transmitted from the pelvis to stabilise the occupants' head.


New standard features across all variants include Autofold outer rearview mirrors, Qi Wireless Charger, Wireless Apple Carplay, 8-inch Infotainment display and LED interior lighting.
