A BODY THAT EMBODIES MOTION. What sets Mazda design apart from other brands is our obsession with the ultimate form of beauty. Mazda’s KODO: “Soul of Motion” design philosophy is based on creating cars that embody the dynamic beauty of life — cars that visually suggest different expressions of this energy. At Mazda, designers never start by sketching a car. Their first step is to create an ideal form. We call this process Exploratory Preparation. Mazda designers create objects with different forms, exploring how they move people’s hearts. We believe that a form sincerely and painstakingly made by human hands gets a soul. Because we don’t just make cars. We breathe life into art forms.
We take a unique approach to creating our paint colors. One of our goals for the CX-5 was to design a color that complemented every curve and angle, giving this stylish compact SUV even more depth, richness and luster. Our Soul Red Crystal Metallic paint does just that. Its unique three-layer paint process uses the changing light to create a sense of movement, even at a standstill.

These versatile Roof Rails1 are the foundation for holding all sorts of gear. They can accommodate a range of specific attachments to carry things like bikes, skis, snowboards and more.

We crafted a superbly quiet cabin, so you hear more of what you want to hear. Mazda engineers incorporated unique sound-deadening materials such as sound-insulating glass and extensive seal insulation — resulting in a significant dulling of unwelcome road noise. Conversations are clearer. Engine noise and vibrations are diminished. So whether you’re enjoying the peace and quiet of driving alone, talking with your passengers or enjoying the ultra-clear sounds emitted from the available Bose® 10-speaker audio sound system with Centerpoint® 2 and AudioPilot® 2, your drive is even more relaxing.
Help keep the great outdoors in its place. Custom-fitted to your CX-5, these All-Weather Floor Mats5 guard against snow, mud, sand and whatever else comes through the door.

PREDICTIVE I-ACTIV AWD® RENDERING THE GREAT UNKNOWN, KNOWN. Weather and road conditions can change in an instant. That’s why available i-ACTIV AWD® helps predict when all-wheel drive might be needed, monitoring everything from outside temperature to throttle input and braking patterns. It then preemptively optimizes torque distribution to help curb traction loss. You may never even notice the change. Which is exactly what Mazda intended.
SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY is at the center of the Mazda driving experience, consisting of the body and chassis. The framework incorporates ultra-high tensile-strength steel in critical areas to help make it lighter, yet stronger — ultimately making for a more enjoyable drive.
Small details can make the biggest impact. This kind of thinking inspired Mazda engineers to spend years developing SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control — a subtle technology standard on the CX-5, and designed to help achieve a smoother, less fatiguing drive. When cornering, on initial turn-in and throughout, the system works seamlessly by adjusting power delivery and shifting vehicle weight. The only thing the driver will notice is a great drive. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
The pursuit of innovation continues with our latest SKYACTIV®-G engine featuring Cylinder Deactivation. This technology shuts down two of the engine’s four cylinders during light load driving conditions, such as maintaining speed on a flat road or traveling downhill. The end result? Improved fuel efficiency. Yes, it’s possible to optimize an already optimized gas powertrain.
Parallel parking can be a challenge, but our Rear Parking Sensors6 make it easier. These Rear Parking Sensors notify you of obstructions behind the vehicle using an alarm sound. An optional on/off switch is available for those towing.

As we continue to invest in lifesaving safety technology, it’s always with a loftier goal in mind: to realize a world where traffic accidents no longer occur. With over 25 years of research and investment into this technology, we believe that Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) can make this a reality. ITS reduces accidents and congestion by receiving and transmitting information about the location of pedestrians and other cars, then relaying it to drivers. Although it is not yet available, we continue to invest in this technology in the hope of one day making accidents a thing of the past.
Mazda’s available Lane Departure Warning System alerts you when you’re unintentionally about to depart from your lane at a speed of approximately 37 mph or higher.
When travelling at low speeds, this system detects objects ahead. If an impact is predicted, the system will adjust the brake pads closer to the disc for faster braking, or apply the brakes if you’re unable to.
Standard radar sensors help detect when objects are in your left and right blind spots. They also warn when fast-approaching vehicles are about to enter a blind spot from further behind.
Our available Adaptive Front-lighting System is specifically designed to help you see around corners at night. As you turn into a corner, the headlights pivot up to 15 degrees in the direction of your turn, improving visibility and allowing you to spot potential hazards and dangers ahead.
As you reverse, this standard system promptly alerts you on the back-up monitor, as well as on the side view mirrors, when it detects a vehicle approaching from the side.
Available Lane-keep Assist performs minor steering corrections to re-center your vehicle in its lane upon sensing an unintentional lane departure.
Available High Beam Control automatically adjusts the headlight beams from low to high as traffic and road conditions allow.
