Mollie Slater. Mazda. October 28th , 2017.
Based on the human-centred philosophy, which aims to vitalise and stimulate the body and soul with a driving experience matched to human sensibilities, Mazda strives to build vehicles that heighten the sense of unity between the driver and car. The carmaker refined every aspect of the all-new CX-5 to provide a truly pleasing experience for the driver as well as everyone else in the vehicle. These efforts, which include enhanced powertrains, handling and ride comfort, heighten performance while also delivering a more tranquil cabin. The engine line-up includes Mazda SKYACTIV-D 2.2 clean diesel as well as the SKYACTIV-G 2.0 and SKYACTIV-G 2.5 direct-injection petrol engines. They are paired to six-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatic or SKYACTIV-MT manual transmissions. All these powertrains deliver powerful linear acceleration along with excellent fuel economy and correspondingly low emissions.
The Mazda Kai Concept compact hatchback heralds a new generation of Mazda cars. Featuring the next-generation SKYACTIV-X gasoline engine, SKYACTIV-Vehicle Architecture and a more mature expression of the KODO design language, the model embodies the technology, engineering and design concepts that will define the next generation of Mazda cars. Refinements in all areas of dynamic performance have produced a dramatically quieter, more comfortable ride and an enhanced performance feel. The Mazda Kai Concept features muscular, solid proportions and its form is brought to life by a delicate flow of reflections over the body sides. Developers of the all-new Mazda CX-5 aimed to take the emotional appeal and powerful vitality the carmaker has pursued with its KODO - Soul of Motion designs to a yet higher level by creating a fresh expression of beauty that appeals to mature sensibilities. Aiming for a unique design only Mazda could produce, the development team started with a simple yet honed form free of non-essential elements, as is common in traditional Japanese crafts, choosing "refined toughness" as the design keyword.
All elements in front of the driver flow outward from the centre of the steering wheel, which has an invigorating effect while also creating in the cabin a roomy ambience and sense of width. The extraordinary depth of the seats together with the deeply chiselled climate control louvers express outstanding quality and durability. The decorative panel finishing blends the warmth of natural wood with the strength and resilience of metal. The three interior packages available feature pure white leather, black leather or black fabric. Different colours were used above and below the instrument panel to emphasise the sense of physical unity with the car and its interior roominess.
In this model, we have sought to create a beauty that special to cars-with a cabin further to the back and forming a single smooth line, based on the "golden ratio" of classic coupe proportions. The silhouette creates the feel of a high-performance machine, with a hint of powerful forward momentum. In creating the form of the body, the focus has been on stripping away everything that is unnecessary. The sense of rhythm and movement displayed by Mazda cars in recent years has been transformed into a simple three-dimensional shape that aims to embody a "less is more" aesthetic. From the Mazda badge on the front to the badge on the back, a single powerful axis runs right through the car, evoking the look and feel of supple steel, with all the car movements centering on this central vector. The result is a form that is extraordinarily simple yet full of a sense of latent speed: the "one motion form" that is the outstanding feature of this model. Having created a four-door coupe as our basic framework, we have invested tremendous time and care on the bodywork, especially the play of light across its surface.
