Mazda Australia say they’re confident the Australian car buying public will respond positively to the all-new Mazda CX-5.
Australia’s best-selling mid-size SUV, the current edition Mazda CX-5 continues to win over buyers, despite the fact the model is at the end of its life-cycle.
The all-new model, recently unveiled and just entering production now, is said to be even better.
Landing in Australia early next year, we just attended a Mazda Australia end of year event in Melbourne, where Mazda Marketing Director Alastair Doak gave us a few more details on the new model.
He said we can look forward to driving a vehicle that is quieter, and has a more comfortable interior.
While we also now know that the 2017 Mazda CX-5 will feature an electric tailgate (on certain model grades) and rear air-conditioning vents.
While the new CX-5 will also be the first Mazda SUV model to feature the new ‘G-Vectoring’ safety assist system.
Alastair also revealed that a new model grade would be available - Touring. This new variant will sit between the Maxx Sport and GT grades.
“We feel that the new ‘Touring’ model grade will help fill the gap between the entry-level and higher-spec model and it could be very popular with returning Mazda CX-5 buyers.
“Overall we are very excited about the new CX-5’s prospects in Australia and think that it will be attractive to existing and new customers to the brand.”
