The all-new 2017 Mazda CX-5 design is set apart from other brands. Every angle and aspect of this best-selling CUV has been improved to make driving better, with 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


The interior offers a driver centric interior. 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. The interior of the all-new CX-5 is even quieter, in able to hear the 10-speaker Bose audio system.


Available rear-seat heaters warm up the seatback and cushions of the rear seats. The switches in the armrest enable rear passengers to adjust temperature in three stages. Available power lift gate, available intuitive Active Driving Display TECHNOLOGY PREDICTIVE I-ACTIV AWD® 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.
