All-New 2017 Mazda CX-5 Coming This Spring
The all-new 2017 Mazda CX-5, with a lower center of gravity and 10mm wider front and rear tread, offers a SKYACTIV-D 2.2 clean diesel engine, and a SKYACTIV-G 2.0 or SKYACTIV-G 2.5 direct-injection gasoline engines paired with either a six-speed SKYACTIV-DRIVE automatic or six-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission. Also available is Mazda’s predictive i-ACTIV AWD system. The new CX-5 has G-Vectoring Control which by adjusting engine torque in response to steering wheel action, delivers unified control over lateral and longitudinal acceleration (G) forces and optimizes the vertical load on each wheel. The new CX-5 with gas engines will hit showrooms in the Spring while the diesel will follow later in the year.
