Japanese carmaker Mazda has taken the wraps of the second generation CX-5 SUV at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. The new Mazda CX-5 will go on sale in 2017.
The new Mazda CX-5 looks a lot like its larger sibling the CX-9 with its narrow headlamps flanking the gaping grille up front.
Speaking of the front end, the bumper looks extremely clean which really gels well with the rest of the car's design.
The sides give the CX-5 a more muscular look with the flared up wheel arches while at the rear the slender wraparound tail lamps really complement the front end.
Inside, the CX-5's design is geared towards the driver with a head-up display along with a 4.7-inch TFT display in the instrument colour situated behind Mazda's familiar three-spoke steering wheel.
Also present is a 7.0-inch infotainment that sits on top of a clean looking centre console.
Mazda has retained the 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engine options along with the 2.5-litre petrol powerplant for the US market.
All engines are mated to either a 6-speed manual or automatic gearbox that sends the power to the front wheels. Mazda's i-Active all-wheel drive system is also available as an option.
The all new CX-5 is also getting Mazda's new G-vectoring control steering setup with a new electric power-steering setup which adjusts the engine torque in response to the steering angle, reducing the need for the driver to make steering corrections.
The second-gen Mazda CX-5 ‘s official launch colour is called Soul Red Crystal and is a mix of shadows and vibrant saturation.
