The all-new Mazda CX-5 comes with rigid steering mounts that heighten the linearity and steering stiffness of its column type electric power steering system. The front MacPherson strut and rear multi-link suspension system features larger diameter front damper pistons and liquid-filled bushings for the front suspension. They suppress the floating sensation experienced by the driver as well as unpleasant vibrations in the cabin when the vehicle is subjected to roll. The braking system with front ventilated and rear solid discs now gets Mazda auto-hold function, which keeps the car stopped even after the driver lifts his or her foot off the brake pedal.
Aerodynamic components such as the duct-shaped openings in the front grille were strategically positioned to provide the greatest benefit. Mazda Proactive Safety is a comprehensive approach to maximising the range of conditions in which the driver can operate the vehicle safely and with greater confidence while minimising the risks that could lead to an accident. It thus supports true driving pleasure. With new active safety features, Mazda i-ACTIVSENSE advanced safety technologies lend even greater assistance to the driver in identifying potential risks early on, further lowering the chances of damage or injury. Passive safety enhancements include improving the efficiency of the multi-load path structure on Mazda innovative SKYACTIV-Body and using more ultra-high strength steels. The carmaker is aiming for top ratings from traffic safety authorities around the world.
Efforts focused on creating a confident, resilient look that further enhances the distinct personality and dynamic flavour of the outgoing model. An expression of pure motion running from the front to the rear of the body conveys agile acceleration and speed. The all-new CX-5 exudes a boldly seductive charm. Its physique emphasises the solid stance and forward momentum with a simple form that beautifully reflects shadows and highlights. A lower centre of gravity and 10mm wider front and rear tread give the all-new Mazda CX-5 a more powerful stance. Mazda repositioned the A-pillars some 35mm rearward compared to the current model, also optimising the relative positions of the front axle and A-pillars. The motion conveyed down the sides of the vehicle culminates at the rear with a trapezoidal shape that extends from the liftgate out toward each rear tire. The result is a powerful physique that appears firmly planted from any angle.
A 15.5% increase in torsional rigidity over the current model reduces flexing that might otherwise slow the vehicle response to steering input from the driver. Increased use of ultra-high strength materials including 1,180MPa steel on the A-pillars and 980MPa steel on the side sills and B-pillars. To enable stress-free conversation in the cabin, great effort was devoted to reducing the low-frequency road noise heard when driving on coarse surfaces as well as high-frequency wind and tire noise when travelling at higher speeds. Compared to the outgoing model, the all-new Mazda CX-5 achieves around 10% clearer conversation levels in the cabin at a cruising speed of 100km/h and reduces noise by some 1.3dB when traveling on rough roads.
