In just over a year and a half, the new-generation Mazda CX-5 will be a reality. It is scheduled to reach all markets in 2023, a model that will technically switch to rear-wheel drive to compete with the European Premiums. Bigger, it will be a revolution of which we present you the first look.
There is no doubt that the Mazda CX-5 is one of the main pillars that sustain the Japanese brand. Its design, more elegant than sporty, conquers customers, along with an interior to match in which technology and digital displays and their refined engines are not abused.
Very solid arguments that will remain in the next generation, but with a 360º turn. The 2023 Mazda CX-5 will arrive in just over a year and a half. It has already been seen very timidly in spy photos, in the United States, showing off new features that we have reproduced in this recreation. The highlight is the completely new side, and with a more familiar look that can be seen in the new shape of the fixed rear window of the rear pillar. Of Mazda has transformed the SUV into a significantly larger model.
The Mazda CX-5 2023, technical revolution and aesthetic evolution
Which they have disguised with an evolved design of the front and rear. The future Mazda CX-5 will continue to maintain the sloping headlights, inspired by those of the Mazda3, so the hood will act as a flange offering a sportier image, thanks to a greater height and a more horizontal panel. In addition, it is also worth noting the larger hood, under which six-cylinder in-line engines will be included. Those from Hiroshima have also modified the radiator grille, larger and now more integrated into the front.
A renewed style, but keeping its genes intact. And it is that the brand intends to maintain the «continent», what its customers like the most, although with a more modern touch. However, inside the body will change. The dashboard will present a more minimalist design but without losing sight of the characteristic Japanese order of controls and displays. The firm, considered a Premium among the Japanese, will not lend itself to the same philosophy of the European ones of completely digitizing the command post.
Those interested in the Mazda CX-5 should know that the model will undergo a major change on a technical level. And it is that it will cease to be a front-wheel-drive model to become a rear-wheel drive, and also total. A new platform shared with the also new Mazda6, climbing positions in its range and rising to a D Premium segment. The CX-5 will also debut gasoline and diesel engines, as well as hybrids, with SkyActiv-X technology and up to six cylinders in line.
