Mazda's CX-5 is a mid-sized SUV with a loyal following. Jonathan Crouch checks out the MK2 model to find out why.
Mazda's CX-5 mid-sized SUV has been thoroughly rejuvenated in second generation guise. As before, it's a good compromise between a Nissan Qashai-style family Crossover and a Toyota RAV4-style SUV, offering good driving dynamics, efficient running costs and decent practicality. This may not be the first car you consider in this sector, but try one and you might just think it to be the best.
The CX-5 has proved to be a crucial car for Mazda. Launched in 2012 relatively early on in the current craze for mid-sized SUV and Crossover models, it's since sold prodigiously. To the point where this model line now accounts for a quarter of all the Japanese brand's global sales. Over 1.5 million CX-5s have been sold worldwide, with 32,000 examples having found UK owners. Will those people like this sharper-looking second generation version? It'll be interesting to see. The engine-ware hasn't changed but almost everything else about this car has, with higher quality, greater infotainment connectivity and slightly more involving handling. It'll need to be good in the face of crowded competition for sales of cars of this kind. Let's judge this CX-5 on its merits.
A lot has changed about this second generation CX-5 - but not under the bonnet. So the same range of SKYACTIV engines are carried over into this MK2 model. That means the 2.0-litre 165PS 'SKYACTIV-G' petrol unit that hardly any UK buyers choose and which can only be ordered with manual transmission and front-wheel drive. And the volume 2.2-litre 'SKYACTIV-D' diesel unit which, as before, is offered with either 150 or 175PS and can be specified with the options of AWD and auto transmission. Like many new-era Mazda models, this one's a product of the company's 'Jinba-Ittai' 'car-and-driver-as-one' philosophy which aims to deliver more focused levels of levels of driver engagement and comfort. This time round, particular attention has been paid to reducing noise and vibration within the cabin. Plus a 15% improvement in torsional body rigidity, along with refinements to the steering, suspension and brakes, all contribute to an improvement in the handling precision that marked out the previous model. Further helping in this regard is a freshly introduced 'GVC' 'G-Vectoring Control' torque vectoring system that transfers traction to the wheel most needing it when you're going at speed through tight corners. And off road prowess? Well, as with the systems employed by most of its rivals, this car has a set-up in which the torque is automatically split according to the terrain you're on, so it can direct 100% of drive to the front wheels in normal conditions, with up to 50% then directed to the rear wheels if slip is detected.
There's nothing radically different about this second generation CX-5. Instead, what we've got is a thorough evolution of the original model, the car that introduced Mazda's 'KODO' 'Soul of Motion' design philosophy. This MK2 model takes its cues from the stunning 'RX Vision' concept car the brand displayed at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show and swaps the previous soft and curvy look for an altogether sharper and more mature design. This is exactly what many prospective buyers will want. The smarter exterior looks see this car get a sleeker profile and a lower roofline to underscore its solid stance and elegant proportions. Under the skin, a fully-revised body structure that's been created under the concept of what Mazda calls 'Refined Toughness'. All of this is complemented by a completely re-designed interior that aims to merge meticulous cockpit ergonomics with a sophisticated, high-quality and spacious cabin environment. The interior's dominated by a 7.0-inch colour centre-dash touchscreen featuring full navigation as standard. In terms of overall quality, the finish isn't quite up there with a rival Volkswagen Tiguan but it's certainly an improvement over what you'd get in competitors like Ford's Kuga and Kia's Sportage. In the back, there's plenty of legroom, despite the provision of a decently-sized boot.
List pricing sees CX-5 ownership pitched much as before, with prices ranging in the £24,000 to £33,000 bracket. There are two trim levels - 'SE-L Nav' and 'Sport Nav' and three engines, a 2.0 165PS petrol unit and 150 and 175PS versions of the familiar 2.2-litre diesel. You have to have a diesel if you want to be able to pay the £2,000 premium that Mazda demands for AWD. You also have to have a diesel if you want automatic transmission - it's an extra £1,500. All models feature a generous standard equipment tally that includes LED headlights, auto power-folding door mirrors, dual-zone climate control, a DAB radio and a 7" colour touch-screen display with Mazda's integrated navigation. 'Sport Nav' cars add to this with a reversing camera, an 8-way power adjustable driver's seat and Smart keyless entry, plus heated front seats and steering wheel, a power lift tailgate and a new head-up display that projects directly onto the windscreen and features Traffic Sign Recognition. Other highlights include two new optional paint colours: 'Soul Red Crystal Metallic' and 'Machine Grey Metallic'. Both shades use Mazda's unique three-layer TAKUMINURI painting technology, and compared to the previous CX-5's 'Soul Red Metallic' paint, 'Soul Red Crystal' increases brightness by approximately 20% and depth by 50%.
The CX-5's unexpectedly imperious progress continues when it comes to cost of ownership and this is where the SKYACTIV technology really pays off. The 2.2-litre 175PS diesel variant many will choose returns 52.3mpg on the combined cycle and a CO2 figure of 142g/km. Clever use of low compression ratios for the SKYACTIV-G petrol and SKYACTIV-D diesel engines means that ignition takes longer, ensuring a better mixture of air and fuel. This approach also enables the engines to run with less mechanical stress, which allows the use of lighter weight materials, in turn meaning that the finished vehicle will need less energy to move through the air. And no energy at all of course when it comes to a temporary stop, say at the lights or in traffic. At that point in this Mazda's case, an 'i-stop' engine stop/start system (the fastest-reacting set-up of its kind on the market) will cut in, reducing fuel consumption by up to 10% all on its own. As for peace of mind, well given the reliability of Mazda products, you'd have thought the company might have wanted to improve upon its usual three year/60,000 mile package and take on the Korean brands. Not so. That familiar standard warranty remains in place for this car.
The CX-5 isn't one of those cars that jumps out at you on first acquaintance. But as with many Mazdas, its modesty hides a product packed with innovation. The result is excellent packaging, strong economy and emissions and driving dynamics that are amongst the best in this sector. Add in a high specification and competitive pricing and you've a compelling proposition, especially since recent suspension and refinement improvements. In summary, what we've got here is yet another example of Mazda going its own way, doing things differently. Which means? Well something quite simple really. If you're looking for a car of this kind, make sure you also try this one.
Mazda's CX-5 isn't your typical compact SUV. June Neary puts the second generation version through its paces.
Big bumpers, bulging wheelarches and ferocious looking grilles were a big part of what fired 4x4 vehicles to mainstream popularity. They were a bolder choice than a conventional car with extra attitude and a youthful image that had a powerful appeal for a lot of people, even if off-road driving wasn't on their agenda. Today, SUVs have become a lot more circumspect in the way they look and the secomd generation version of Mazda's CX-5 is a perfect example. In these more environmentally enlightened times, maintaining a lower profile is a more attractive option and 'car-like' is a quality that's increasingly highly prised. Few SUVs do car-like more effectively than this CX-5.
The CX-5 will net some sales purely on the basis of the way it looks. This MK2 model takes its cues from the 'RX Vision' concept car the brand displayed at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show and swaps the previous soft and curvy look for an altogether sharper and more mature design. This is exactly what many prospective buyers will want. The smarter exterior looks see this car get a sleeker profile and a lower roofline to underscore its solid stance and elegant proportions. Under the skin, a fully-revised body structure that's been created under the concept of what Mazda calls 'Refined Toughness'. Take a seat at the wheel and you're treated to a master class in how it's possible to completely change the look and feel of this part of the cabin without altering any of its essential dimensions or hard points. Two things are primarily responsible for this and the first change is predictable given the fact that interior quality was one of the original CX-5 model's biggest flaws. This time round, it's a very different story, with an up-market feel that's clearly been inspired by the German brands that Mazda wants to emulate. When I took a seat in the rear, I realised that not all mid-sized SUVs are the same. Whereas in a rival Qashqai or an Ateca (or even a slightly bigger competitor like Ford's Kuga), a couple of adults might struggle a little for comfort on a longer trip, in the back of a CX-5, you feel like you're in an environment that hasn't solely been designed around the needs of children. You can stretch out a little, with proper space for your head, leg and shoulders on the more supportive rear bench. There's a decently-sized 506-litre boot too.
A 2.0-litre petrol engine's offered, but it's the 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel that buyers tend to want, offered with either 150 or 175PS. With either diesel, you get a choice of front wheel drive or AWD and the option of auto transmission if you want it. The volume 150PS 'SKYACTIV-D' unit manages 56.5mpg and 132g/km of CO2 in front-driven, manual form. As for the dynamic improvements made this time round, well the body's 15% more rigid and Mazda's clever 'G-Vectoring Control' system has been adopting to improve cornering traction. The CX-5 gives only the merest nod to the concept of off-road ability, preferring instead to concentrate its efforts on the tarmac ride and handling that owners will experience day to day. As I said, there's four-wheel-drive, Mazda's Active Torque-Split system, but the CX-5 is no mud-plugger. Its low ride height and lack of body protection see to that. What you do get is enhanced grip and ability in slippery conditions as the 4x4 system automatically distributes torque to the axle that can best use it. There's also fully-independent suspension to bring added finesse to the drive.
CX-5 customers have always received a lot of equipment for their money and nothing is set to change in that regard. Even base 'SE-L Nav' trim comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights that include LED daytime running lamps and fog lights, auto headlamps and wipers and heated power-folding mirrors, plus rear privacy glass, front and rear parking sensors and the brand's sophisticated 'GVC' 'G-Vectoring Control' system for extra traction through the turns. Inside, the primary feature is a standard 7-inch centre-dash 'MZD-Connect' colour touchscreen incorporating satellite navigation, integrated Bluetooth, a 6-speaker DAB audio system and app integration for internet radio, Facebook and Twitter, plus you get the usual USB and iPod ports. Other interior features include dual-zone climate control, leather for the gearknob and the multi-function steering wheel, an auto-dimming rear view mirror and a 40-20-40 split rear seat backrest for the reclinable rear seat.
I have a lot of time for the CX-5 and that's coming from someone who can generally take or leave SUVs. Its focus on on-road driving suits me fine and it looks good too, which is always a help.
