Mazda CX-5 updated with lower CO2 despite WLTP

Mazda CX-5 2017

Mazda has updated the CX-5 SUV with revisions to the 2.2-litre Skyactiv-D diesel engine.

There is also increased active safety equipment across the range and the introduction of automatic petrol models for the first time.

Available from August 31, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 features a ten-model line-up with SE-L Nav+ and Sport Nav+ trim levels.

Across both outputs, the diesel engine has been enhanced with a modified combustion chamber, new injectors, a revised two-stage turbocharger and a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) System.

Changes to the water flow management help the engine warm up quicker to reduce emissions and help real-world mpg.

Diesel models now emit from 130g/km of CO2.

In addition to the efficiency gains, the higher output version sees power increase from 175PS to 184PS.

All models feature LED headlights, auto power-folding door mirrors, dual-zone climate control, DAB and a seven-inch colour touch-screen display with Mazda’s integrated navigation.

Sport Nav+ cars add a reversing camera, Smart keyless entry, heated front seats and heated steering wheel.

In addition, the updated CX-5 gets adaptive crusie control, blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, and lane keep assist as standard.
