All-new 2017 Mazda CX-5 Pricing and Specification announced




The segment-leading all-new Mazda CX-5 has arrived, bringing a fresh new design along with improved safety, refinement and handling to drivers for 2017. Pricing starts off at $28,690 for the Maxx and tops out at $49,990 for the high spec Akera. Both stickers exclude on-road costs. A new Touring grade is available sitting in the middle of the Maxx Sport and higher specced GT. In total the 2017 Mazda CX-5 lineup now ranks as follows:

  • Maxx: The base model Maxx comes equipped with LED headlights, power mirrors, reclining rear 40/20/40 seats, MZD Connect with multi-function commander control, Digital radio and Bluetooth, advanced keyless push button engine start, Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM), rear parking sensors, Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), reverse camera and forward/reverse Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) all standard.
  • Maxx Sport: The Sport benefits from 17 inch alloy wheels, dual zone climate control, centre armrest storage with USB inputs for the rear seats, satellite navigation and rear air vents.
  • Touring: This new trim spec brings with it the flip-up Active Driving Display, black Maztex/suede seat trim, advanced keyless entry, front parking sensors and Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR).
  • GT: The higher grade GT spec sports 19 inch alloy wheels, Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS), a power operated boot + sunroof, windscreen mounted Active Driving Display and black or pure white leather seat trim.
  • Akera: Top spec of the range, the Akera gains a collection of i-ACTIVSENSE safety features in the form of radar cruise control with stop and go functionality, Adaptive LED Headlights (ALH), Driver Attention Alert (DAA), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane-keep Assist System (LAS), a side camera and Smart Brake Support (SBS).

The familiar engine line up returns with choices of the 2.0- and 2.5-litre SKYACTIV-G petrol engines as well as the 2.2-litre turbo diesel SKYACTIV-D though Mazda claims a 4% fuel economy improvements over the previous CX-5. The 2.0-litre and 2.5-litre petrol units come in at 6.9L/100km and 7.5L/100km respectively while the 2.2-litre turbo diesel is rated at 6.0L/100km. Developed for the Mazda 6, the diesel models now benefit from High-Precision DE Boost Control, Natural Sound Smoother and Natural Sound Frequency Control technologies that improve both performance and noise/vibration levels.

While nothing is confirmed, Mazda is also said to be toying with the idea of a future high performance CX-5 flagship powered by the company’s widely acclaimed 2.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine currently found in the CX-9 seven seat SUV. That engine produces 170kW and 420Nm in the CX-9.

Handling across the range has been improved with the addition of G-Vectoring Control on AWD models, a system that adjusts engine torque to shift the weight to the front wheels on turn in and then shifts torque to the rear throughout the corner for a more planted and stable feel. Further assisting handling performance is the chassis improvements resulting in 15% more torsional rigidity over the previous model. Engineering efforts were also focused on improving noise and vibration levels for a more comfortable driving experience that sees the new CX-5 offering a level of quietness similar to driving the previous model 20km/h slower.
