X-Tomi’s rendering of the latest CX-5 Mazda Performance Series is simply stunning

The recently concluded 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show has just showcased the new generation Mazda CX-5. And with it comes a rendered version for an MPS variant. Let us see what the guys from X-Tomi Design are up to.

To begin, the MPS-wearing CX-5 features a variety of body panels to make it sportier and stand out from the standard mid-size SUV. As you can see, the most prominent design goes to the black trim along the front grille and the much-larger set of wheels. The low riding Mazda CX-5 also has new side skirts, lip spoiler and front bumper to complete the MPS get-up. So there it is! X-Tomi has done an impressive job.

Of course there is no actual confirmation if this will come into production. That said, Mazda has concocted a new paint color for the SUV befitting its latest “KODO Soul of Motion” styling. The “Soul Red Crystal” as they call it is the more premium version of Mazda’s Soul Red body paint.

Mazda unveils redesigned 2017 CX-5 compact crossover at LA Auto Show

Japanese carmaker Mazda Motor Corp. is all set to unveil the latest iteration of its CX-5 compact crossover at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show starting Friday, November 18. For the 2017 model year, the Mazda CX-5 has been redesigned with a new color paint that should allow this crossover to increase its appeal and emotional connection with its owners.

The styling changes on the new CX-5 were a result of adopting a number of design cues from the latest version of its larger crossover sibling, the CX-9. For instance, its front end now comes with a broader grille flanked by arched headlights. The front end is also marked by a narrow lower intake that links to the running lights, thereby further highlighting the width of the CX-5. When viewed from the sides, the new CX-5 looks the same as its predecessor, but it now features extra chrome around its windows. Meanwhile, the rear end of compact crossover is marked by sharper taillights.

In a bid to increase the exterior appeal of its offerings, Mazda has developed a new body color that represents its KODO - Soul of Motion design. The new 2017 Mazda CX-5 is the first vehicle in the carmaker’s lineup to don this new color, which will then be applied to new and current models. Soul Red Crystal is an advanced version of Soul Red. Soul Red Crystal features 20-percent better color saturation and 50-percent more depth than Soul Red.

It appears that automatic-braking systems are not quite trustable and the latest proof comes from Japan, where a Mazda CX-5 crossover using that system just crashed yesterday. According to media sources, the crash took place in a dealership’s parking lot.

The Japanese carmaker is currently investigating this event but could not confirm it the model had the brake feature. Mazda’s system is called Smart City Brake Support and uses laser sensor in order to detect any obstacles found in the front of the car.

Mazda is moving forward with a new crossover in the United States this year, even with the financial crisis it experienced in Japan. In addition, the automaker is increasing its advertisement expenses by 25% for 2012. Last week, Mazda Motor Corp. in Japan announced its plans to put $2 billion in new stock up for sale.

It also plans to borrow $878 million from banks to prepare for its largest net loss in 11 years. Moreover, it is seeking an alliance partner. Mazda is greatly affected by the surging yen due to its high rate of exports. The automaker anticipates its fourth straight year of losing money with a full fiscal-year net loss of 100 billion yen or around $1.29 billion, which is worse than previously forecasted. The fiscal year ends March 31.

However, the automaker revealed that it has "bottomed out" and expects a net income in its fiscal fourth quarter and for its fiscal year starting April 1, notwithstanding the strong yen.

Drivers of all-new Mazda CX-5 compact crossover SUV need not to worry about colliding with another car in front when driving slowly in city streets. Mazda has announced its newest anti-collision safety technology, the ‘Smart City Brake Support’ (SCBS). The SCBS system, fitted as standard on the Mazda CX-5, uses a laser sensor to detect a vehicle or any other obstacle in front of the SUV.

If the system detects a possible collision and the driver fails to slow down appropriately or turn the wheel to avoid the crash, the SCBS automatically activates the brakes and cuts the engine yield at the same time.  This allows the system to help avoid collisions or if not, mitigate the damage from rear-end collisions at low speeds, which is one of the most common accidents.

With the car moving low speeds of between 2.5 and 19mph, the laser sensor installed at the top of the windscreen detects an obstacle in front of the Mazda CX-5 and monitors the space as well as the closing speed.
