Back and Better than Ever: the 2017 Mazda CX-5

By now Mazda drivers are familiar with Mazda’s KODO: Soul of Motion design philosophy, the idea of car and driver existing as one. It’s the philosophy that drives Mazda’s relentless pursuit of achieving superior driver comfort and developing a superior driving experience. It’s the practice of obsessing over details, over every detail, until driving perfection is achieved. With the 2017 Mazda CX-5, you can now experience the effect of Soul of Motion.

Completely redesigned for 2017, the Mazda CX-5 is available in three trims—Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring, with an EPA estimated 31 mpg for highway miles and seating for five, the Mazda CX-5 interior design improvements are subtle, effective, and beautiful. Sitting behind the wheel of a 2017 Mazda CX-5 gives the driver a sense of empowerment as everything—steering wheel, pedals, armrests—are perfectly placed so the driver can sit confidently aligned, poised, and composed.

What truly sets the Mazda CX-5 apart from other models in its segment is the high-quality of its interior. It’s full of rich touches that lend an utterly luxurious feel to this affordably priced compact SUV. The effect of soft touch materials found throughout the cabin combined with high-end materials create a classy, refined experience.

All three trims comes standard with a 187 horsepower, 2.5 liter four cylinder engine, six speed automatic transmission, and front wheel drive. Standard equipment includes a 7-inch touchscreen with Mazda’s infotainment system, a backup camera, and 40/20/40-split folding backseats that also recline. Low-speed automatic brake support is available on all trims, as is forward collision warning. The Mazda CX-5 comes with a suite of optional tech and safety features, including adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking.

Like most things in life, it’s best to experience the Mazda CX-5 firsthand. Head to Dublin Mazda for a test drive and experience the Mazda CX-5’s quiet, smooth ride, its airy luxurious cabin, and the feeling of sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle where every detail has been deliberately designed.
