As well as rugged attractiveness and off-road reliability, the Mazda CX-5 stands out in the mid-size SUV market for its everyday usability, low running costs and safety features. The model has been updated for 2015 featuring improved levels of standard equipment such well as LED lights, integrated navigation system with 3-years free European map updates and enhanced optional safety measures for higher trim levels.
Small wonder, then, that this model won the 2015 and 2016 What Car? Award for “Best Large SUV under £25,000”, with the magazine acclaiming Mazda CX-5 as “spacious, practical, good-value, efficient, comfortable, and with a spark of entertainment to the way it drives”.

As a mid-size SUV, Mazda CX-5 is built with visual hints to both sports car agility and SUV confidence. It’s crafted using Mazda’s exciting and innovative design language– KODO: Soul of Motion – resulting in smooth and flowing lines that show the vehicle’s power in a subtle yet striking way.
The trademark five point grille, sharp “eagle-eyed” headlights and long bonnet give an early indication of the powerful and exhilarating driving experience to come, whilst the flowing lines underline Mazda CX-5’s dynamic qualities. Meanwhile the drag coefficient of 0.33 make the Mazda CX-5 one of the most aerodynamic SUVs on the market – an attribute that aids both performance and efficiency in the same way as the vehicle’s relatively light kerb weight. Stunning 17” alloy wheels round off the look of the car admirably, in addition to providing excellent grip and traction. Sport Nav models feature 19” Gunmetal alloy wheels along with LED headlights for even greater visibility and road presence.
Three trim levels are offered: SE-L Nav, SE-L Lux Nav, and the range-topping Sport Nav. All of these models will bring you an abundance of technology. A 7” colour touch-screen with DAB radio and the MZD-Connect infotainment system with an integrated navigation system with 3-years free European map updates, as standard across the range. Smartphone users can also access the internet, including online radio stations via the cloud-based AhaTM app*.
Other standard equipment includes dual-zone climate control air-conditioning, front and rear parking sensors, cruise control and integrated Bluetooth®. The SE-L Lux Nav specification adds heated leather seats and a tilt and slide sunroof whilst Sport Nav offers a reversing camera, smart keyless entry and a premium Bose® surround-sound system.

Open the door to enter the cabin and the exceptional, premium finish within the Mazda CX-5 will take your breath away. The streamlined dashboard, clear and simple instrument layout, chrome trims and leather steering wheel all contribute to the air of refinement and quality. The model’s Karakuri seating is also remarkably flexible, with the rear bench folding in several configurations to create a large functional luggage space of up to 1,620 litres.
