UK pricing for all-new Mazda CX-5 revealed, preorder facility available

Article by Christian A., on February 15, 2012

Mazda has revealed the UK pricing of the all-new Mazda CX-5. A pre-order facility is also available for customers through their local Mazda dealer. The all-new Mazda CX-5 is the Japanese brand's first product to represent its cutting-edge SKYACTIV technology. It made its world premier at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2011.

When made available for sale this spring, the Mazda CX-5 compact crossover SUV model range consists of 18 vehicles, with prices ranging from £21,395 to £28,795 (OTR). The new Mazda CX-5 comes in a selection of two engines with three power outputs: the 2.0-liter SKYACTIV 165ps petrol, 2.2-liter SKYACTIV 150ps or 175ps diesel.

The vehicle will also come with manual and automatic transmissions, 2-wheel drive (2WD) or all-wheel drive (AWD) and four equipment levels -- SE-L Nav, SE-L, Sport and Sport Nav. Six diesel models and four petrols will come with 2-wheel drive. Meanwhile, the all-wheel drive will be available for eight diesels.

Prices for the 2.0-liter petrol variants begin at £21,395 (OTR) for the CX-5 SE-L to £23,995 for the CX-5 Sport NAV. Prices for the diesel CX-5 versions for the 2.2-liter 150ps models range from £22,995 for the SE-L to £24,295 for the SE-L Auto.

The Sport Nav begins at £25,595 while the entry-level AWD model is priced at £24,695. Prices for 2.2-litre 175ps diesel models start at £27,195 for the CX-5 AWD Sport. The vehicle also comes with a selection of eight exterior colors and black cloth or leather interior trim in black or stone – depending on the unit.

All-new Mazda CX-5 will return a combined fuel consumption figure of 61.4 to 47.0mpg and will achieve remarkably low CO2 emissions for a compact SUV with 119 to 144g/km, depending also on the model.  With a rating of 119g/km, the Mazda CX-5 150ps diesel 2WD model is notably below the class average of 147g/km measured throughout the 11 competitors.

CX-5 SE-L models have 17-inch alloy wheels, dual zone climate control air-conditioning, front fog lights, privacy glass, Smart City Brake Support, and back and front parking sensors.  Going up the CX-5 range, Sport grade models will have 19-inch alloy wheels, full leather trim, Bi-Xenon headlights with Active Front Lighting System, powered driver's seat, a reversing camera and heated front seats.

For Mazda, a compact crossover should not be just one in terms of looks, but also in terms of performance. This is why the Japanese will mark its entry into the compact crossover segment with a new vehicle that could evoke one’s emotion and passion for driving – the new Mazda CX-5. As the first model to feature Mazda’s new "KODO - Soul of Motion" design theme, the new CX-5 offers a delicate blend of style and performance as well as beauty and power.

KODO made its debut in 2010 with the Mazda Shinari sports coupe concept, and this was followed by Mazda Minagi compact crossover concept. Interestingly, the new Mazda CX-5 is derived from the Mazda Minagi. This is why it is not surprising for the Mazda CX-5 to feature the KODO theme, which is expected to underpin the looks and design of the next generation of Mazda vehicles.

To promptly and properly capture the true essence of the KODO – which by itself exudes emotion, vitality and agility – Mazda designers for the new CX-5 designers made a good study of the fastest animals on land – cheetahs. Designers intimately observed how cheetahs employ their entire body as a spring, thereby translating their energy into elegant and graceful motion.

In creating the looks of the new Mazda CX-5, designers took inspiration by the elegance and beauty of a cheetah, infusing KODO into the overall design of this new compact crossover. Thanks to this, Mazda was able to give the CX-5 a stylish yet very sophisticated exterior that exudes both an elegant sense of motion and the sturdiness and practicality of an SUV.

Four petrol models and six diesels will come with 2-wheel drive, while all-wheel drive will be available for eight diesel models. Prices for 2.0-litre petrol versions start from £21,395 (OTR) for the CX-5 SE-L and rise to £23,995 for the CX-5 Sport NAV.

Diesel CX-5 prices for the 2.2-litre 150ps models begin at £22,995 for the SE-L and step up to £24,295 for the SE-L Auto, to £25,595 for the Sport Nav and £24,695 for the entry-level AWD model. Prices for 2.2-litre 175ps diesel models kick-off at £27,195 for the CX-5 AWD Sport. Customers can choose from eight exterior colours and black cloth or leather interior trim in black or stone – depending on model.

“As well as delivering a thrilling drive, great fuel economy up to 61.4mpg and low emissions down as low as 119g/km – thanks to its clever SKYACTIV technology – the all-new Mazda CX-5 will offer motorists in Britain excellent value for money,” comments Peter Allibon, Sales Director, Mazda UK.

Depending on model, the all-new Mazda CX-5 will return a fuel consumption figure of 61.4 to 47.0mpg (combined) and achieve remarkably low CO2 emissions for a compact SUV of 119 to 144g/km. With a rating of 119g/km the Mazda CX-5 150ps diesel 2WD model is significantly below the class average of 147g/km measured across 11 rivals.

Generously specified, CX-5 SE-L models will come with 17-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, dual‑zone climate control air-conditioning, Smart City Brake Support and privacy glass, plus front and rear parking sensors. Moving up the CX-5 range, Sport grade models will feature 19-inch alloy wheels, Bi-Xenon headlights with Active Front Lighting System, full leather trim, heated front seats, powered driver’s seat and a reversing camera.

“Thanks to its solid environmental credentials, fun-to-drive performance and attractive pricing, the Mazda CX-5 is expected to have huge customer appeal,” adds Allibon.

“The range of SKYACTIV technologies allows Mazda to build cars that deliver class-leading fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, without the price premium charged by other brands for hybrids and electric vehicles.”

While production for the UK market is likely to be limited this year, Mazda has established a pre-ordering facility that will enable customers to order a Mazda CX-5 via their local dealership, allowing them to become one of the first customers to own a vehicle featuring SKYACTIV technology.

“The benefit to the customer is that they are more likely to acquire the vehicle of their choice in a shorter time frame and be among the first to receive news and details of this exciting newcomer,” Allibon added.
