Besides the 2016 Mazda6 Facelift, the Japanese manufacturer also brought the 2016 Mazda CX-5 Facelift at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. Just like the sedan, the CX-5 Facelift comes with an update which consists of a new front grille, redesigned headlamps, new taillamps with LED lightning signature (offered as an option with Technology Package), as well as new 19-inch aluminum wheels.
Nine exterior colours will be available, including the new Sonic Silver Metallic and Titanium Flash Mica, ‘borrowed’ from the Mazda3. The interior received higher quality materials, updated upholstery, a new center stack and floor console.
Mazda says that the new center stack comes with a variety of advanced functions such as Mazda Connect and Electrical Parking Brake (EPB). Three types of decorative panels will be available: an aluminum-look panel featuring a vertical hairline finish and a thin satin chrome strip, a metallic-finish panel and a piano black panel.
Leather interior choices include a new Parchment leather offering, but if you don’t want it you can get the black or sand fabric interiors.
Mazda will offer a 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G petrol engine that produces 155 hp (115 kW) and 150 lb-ft (203 Nm) of torque. If you want a more powerful version, you can get the 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G petrol engine that generates 184 hp (137 kW) and 185 lb-ft (249 Nm) of torque.
The engines will be available with a six-speed automatic Skyactiv-Drive and the six-speed manual Skyactiv-MT transmissions.
