2014 Mazda CX-5 Overview
Mazda’s Compact SUV Entry Boasts New 2.5L Engine, Added Safety Features
Mazda Canada Inc.

LOS ANGELES (November 29, 2012) – With its class-leading fuel economy, head-turning design and better-than-the-rest handling, the 2013 CX-5 has been a worldwide winner for Mazda Motor Corporation (MC) since it was unveiled in Los Angeles last year, and still continues to be.  With SKYACTIV Technology, the brand’s breakthrough engineering and manufacturing approach to its next generation of vehicles, the fuel efficient boost to its lineup saw the manufacturer increasing production of its SKYACTIV engines two-fold.  Now, the first Mazda vehicle to introduce the full suite of SKYACTIV Technology, the CX-5 returns to Los Angeles to make its 2014 model year North American debut and features a powerful new SKYACTIV-G 2.5-litre gasoline engine as well as the all-new Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system.

“The ongoing success of the CX-5 is something we were expecting and we have not been let down,” said Kory Koreeda, president, Mazda Canada. “Using a clean-sheet-of-paper design approach, the CX-5 entered an extremely competitive compact SUV segment and has made quite an impact.  The overwhelmingly positive response from consumers and critics alike are testaments that performance and practicality can be a winning formula without compromises.”

On sale since late February, CX-5’s year-to-date numbers make over 15 percent of MCI’s total sales and are outpaced only by Mazda’s perennial global best-seller, the Mazda3 compact car.  The 2014 CX-5 will go on sale in Canada in January 2013.
