New 2015 Mazda CX-5 revealed

Full prices and specs of facelifted CX-5 have been announced

The new 2015 Mazda CX-5 is set to go on sale in spring and Mazda has now released details and photos of the refreshed SUV to give us the best idea yet of the changes we can expect.

The main updates to the car are actually on the inside, with upgraded materials throughout the cabin and the addition of manual height adjustment for the front passenger seat, an electronic parking brake and Mazda's Multimedia Commander dial for control of the infotainment system.

A new seven-inch, full-colour touchscreen incorporating DAB digital radio and USB connectivity is now standard on all CX-5 models, and top-of-the-range Sport Nav versions will also feature a new integrated sat-nav system that promises more accurate mapping.

Changes to the outside of the car include a revised front grille, a fresh headlight design and new wheels and foglights. Sport Nav CX-5 models will get LED headlights, running lights and foglights, as well as larger 19-inch gunmetal grey alloy wheels.

The mid-range SE-L Lux and range-topping Sport Nav models will now have Stone leather upholstery as an option (rather than black leather) and the top-spec car also has other new optional equipment including radar cruise control.

Mazda has introduced some new technology to the optional Safety Pack, such as adaptive LED headlights, a lane-keeping assistance function with driver drowsiness detection and automatic city braking.

The engines offered with the updated CX-5 are the same as before, with a choice of the SKYACTIV 2.0-litre petrol and 2.2-litre diesel , available with various power outputs and two or four-wheel drive.

The 2015 Mazda CX-5 is due in March or April, with the car costing £22,295 in its most basic form and rising to £30,595 for the most powerful diesel Sport Nav model with four-wheel drive.
