Mazda CX-5

The design was based on the Mazda MINAGI. The Mazda CX-5 replaces both the Mazda Tribute and the Mazda CX-7. Production models went on sale in 2012, with a choice of SKYACTIV-D 2.2 or SKYACTIV-G 2.0 engines, matched to SKYACTIV-DRIVE six-speed automatic transmissions. At its introduction in 2012, it won the Car of the Year Japan Award.

Japan production of the Mazda CX-5 fitted with a SKYACTIV-D 2.2 diesel engine began at Ujina Plant near Mazda’s headquarters in Hiroshima. In 2012, Mazda CX-5 production at Ujina Plant was set to increase to 240,000 units per year by expanding production from Ujina Plant No.2 to boost Ujina Plant No.1.

The Japan domestic market Mazda CX-5 achieved monthly sales 8 times higher than forecast just after its launch in February 2012, with the “clean diesel” (as it is referred to in Japan) model accounting for 73% of the sales.

The Mazda CX-5 is available with both front-wheel and all-wheel drive, engine and drivetrain powered by a 2.0 liter gasoline four-cylinder engine (PE-VPS) sporting 162 bhp (121 kW; 164 PS)/155 lb⋅ft (210 N⋅m) averaging an estimated 28 mpg‑imp (10 L/100 km; 23 mpg‑US) emitting around 139 g/km.

It will also be available with a 2.2-liter two-stage turbocharged diesel (SH-VPTS) with either 147 bhp (110 kW; 149 PS)/280 lb⋅ft (380 N⋅m) or 173 bhp (129 kW; 175 PS)/310 lb⋅ft (420 N⋅m), emitting an estimated 119 and 139 g/km, respectively. The EPA rated the CX-5’s gas mileage as the best in its class, averaging 26mpg city and 35mpg highway, which Mazda claims is the best mileage of any non-hybrid SUV. Fuel consumption for the entry-level diesel engine with front-wheel drive is 63 mpg‑imp (4.5 L/100 km; 52 mpg‑US).

The first generation Mazda CX-5 was launched in Malaysia in May 2012. At launch only one trim level was offered with the 2.0 L SKYACTIV-G engine paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Though, consumers had the choice between FWD or AWD and it was fully imported. In August 2012, the 19″ wheels previously offered was replaced with 17″ wheels. In June 2013, locally assembled models became available. The previously offered, fully imported trim was renamed to High Spec and a new lower trim level, Mid Spec was launched. The Mid Spec was only available with FWD while the High Spec continued to be offered with both FWD and AWD. In April 2015, a new base variant was launched dubbed GL.

The first-generation Mazda CX-5 facelift version was launched in Malaysia in May 2015. Initially, the facelift version was fully imported and only available with the 2.5 L engine. Though again, consumers could choose between FWD or AWD. The locally assembled facelift version was made available in early 2016 with either a 2.0 L SKYACTIV-G engine or a 2.5 L SKYACTIV-G engine. The 2.0 L engine could be had with only FWD but two trim levels: Mid Spec and High Spec with Mid Spec being the more affordable of the two trim levels. The 2.5 L engine was only available with one trim level but with either FWD or AWD. The In July 2016, a 2.2 L SKYACTIV-D powered, FWD, locally assembled variant was launched in Malaysia. It was positioned in between the 2.5 L SKYACTIV-G FWD and 2.5 L SKYACTIV-G AWD variant.
