The exterior is expected to carry on with all of the exact same seems to be that the redesigned 2017 model acquired. This newest iteration on the Kodo design and style brings in the lower, smoother hood; thinner, stretched headlights; 0.4-inch-wider front and rear tread; A-pillars which can be pushed back by 1.4 inches; a three-dimensional grille; and a much more rounded rear hatch.
Within, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 may also probably continue to be unchanged. This consists of the new and much more premium appear from 2017, a raised center console, enhanced visibility, two-step reclining rear seats, along with a new infotainment procedure having a repositioned 7-inch center show. The comparatively
roomy rear seat comes in at 39.6 inches of leg room, and cargo capacity is respectable at 30.9-59.6 cubic feet based on whether or not the seats are folded.
We also expect the common features to continue to be unchanged. If that ends up remaining the case, assume typical goodies to include things like 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, a four-speaker stereo, Bluetooth connectivity, and two USB ports.
The powertrain will also likely carry in excess of to the new model year. It will eventually involve 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 187 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque paired using a six-speed automatic. A prior two.0-liter engine with much less electrical power plus a manual transmission selection was discontinued for 2017.
The present Mazda CX-5 is surely an IIHS Major Security Select Plus automobile. Because you will find no modifications right here, we assume this rating to remain the same. Bear in mind, to hit this rating, you will need to obtain not less than the Touring trim with the optional Touring i-Activsense Package deal ( $625 in 2017) or bump as much as the range-topping Grand Touring trim – both have the automated emergency braking the IIHS necessitates for its highest rating.
