Crossover SUVs are popular worldwide because of the way they combine toughness with speed and grace. They have practical cargo space and have more zip than one may think on the highway.
Mazda’s agile CX-5 is loaded with new features that make this crossover SUV extra popular. Let’s look at what they are.
Optional i-Activ AWD
The CX-5 is available with i-Activ AWD that gives you a sure-footed drive that also saves you fuel. The vehicle’s sensors and radars scan the road constantly to monitor conditions, then the vehicle itself can respond to its surroundings.
If a back wheel needs more torque due to road slippage, the i-Activ system will send additional power to the right tire at just the moment it’s needed. This makes driving safer without wasting gas. Mazda set out to prove that All-Wheel Drive systems can be fuel-efficient, and they succeeded.
If you need to get a new car this fall, make sure it’s one that is smart enough to read the road.
The CX-5 is available in a Dynamic Pressure Turbocharged Skyactiv-G 2.5 T that delivers up to 250-horsepower and 320 lb.-ft. of torque. Enjoy the pep on highways normally associated with smaller vehicles and the power to tow if required.
The CX-5 is now available in six trims — the GX, GS, Kuro, GT, 100th, and Signature — so you can get your preferred engine.
Not only is the vehicle itself entertaining to drive, but now, modern vehicles come loaded with contemporary technology to keep drivers and passengers informed and entertained. The 8”-wide colour display and infotainment system are easy to operate effortlessly.
Link up with Apple CarPlay to access Siri, Apple Music, Apple Maps on your iPhone. Or, use Android Auto to use Android phones for music, navigation, or to stay connected.
Bose made a custom 10-speaker system designed especially for the CX-5, which factors in features like cabin size, materials, and more. The result is your favourite music will never sound better at low and high volumes.
The sensors and scanners in the CX-5 essentially let every driver have eyes in the back of their head. The CX-5 constantly scans the road and keeps drivers aware of their surroundings by issuing audible and visual alerts.
A short list of the available safety features demonstrates this vehicle’s impressive abilities to prevent a collision from occurring or reducing their severity when avoiding them is impossible:
- Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Smart City Brake Support
Certain trims like the Signature have additional safety features such as Smart City Brake Support Rear and Driver Attention Alert. These features don’t only help prevent accidents; they make driving more pleasant and less stressful in countless everyday situations.
Driving such a beautiful vehicle so capable of traversing any road or condition is thrilling and practical. When you need to get anywhere in a smart, stylish, and tough vehicle, the Mazda CX-5 is the perfect fit.
