Mazda CX-5 updated for 2014

Revised Mazda CX-5 SUV is quieter and adds more standard equipment

The excellent Mazda CX-5 has been fine-tuned for 2014 to make it quieter inside and better value than ever before. The company has also add extra equipment across the range, although prices remain largely unchanged.

Revised suspension makes Mazda CX-5 more comfortable on bumpy roads, while noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) is also reduced. The latter means the interior should be quieter than in the existing model, even at motorway speeds.

A handy clutch-restart system is now fitted on models with manual gearboxes. It restarts the engine up to three seconds after a stall, when the driver depresses the clutch. The old system required the engine start/stop button to be pressed, while also engaging the clutch.

Mazda CX-5 SE-L, Lux and Sport models now get six-way electrically adjustable driver and passenger seats, which also include a memory function. Full black leather seats are now standard-fit, and Light Stone leather (as featured on the all-new Mazda3 and Mazda6) is a £200 option. Additional cosmetic changes include two new paint finishes – Blue Reflex Mica (pictured here) and Deep Crystal Blue Mica.

The Mazda CX-5 is one of our favourite SUVs because it combines decent performance with cheap running costs – thanks to economy of up to 61.4mpg and CO2 emissions of just 119g/km.

Peter Allibon, Mazda UK’s sales director, said: “Last year we sold more than 6,000 Mazda CX-5 vehicles in the UK, up 227 per cent over 2012, and with strong demand across the globe the CX-5 will continue to be highly sought-after in 2014.

“This year the upgraded 2014 models will ensure that every Mazda CX-5 continues to offer customers a remarkably compelling ownership proposition, thanks to its great fuel economy, low emissions, fun-to-drive performance, high specifications, attractive pricing, low running costs and excellent residual values,”

The revisions mean the Mazda CX-5 now costs between £21,595 for the basic two-wheel drive Mazda CX-5 2.0-litre SE-L and £29,595 for the top-of-the-range four-wheel drive Mazda CX-5 2.2-litre Sport Nav Auto.
