New Mazda CX-5 ‘SE-L Lux’ Models

Featuring SKYACTIV Technology

The Mazda CX-5 has recently proved its popularity in a customer satisfaction survey and now customer feedback has prompted Mazda to introduce two new models the CX-5 compact SUV line-up; the SE-L Lux and the SE-L Lux Nav. Both these new models are based on the 2.2 litre diesel 150pss 2WD SE-L.

Peter Allibon, Sales Director, Mazda UK said “many potential Mazda customers have expressed an interest in being able to acquire a CX-5 with a sunroof and leather trim without having to purchase a range-topping Sport model.  Now, responding to that latent demand, we are adding two models to our Mazda CX-5 range, based on our most popular and economical powertrain, the 2.2-litre diesel 150ps with 2WD and six-speed manual transmission.  The premium is an extremely modest £1,200 for an upgraded specification which would cost more than £2,500 with some rival brands.”

The latest Mazda CX-5 is equipped with a range of breakthrough technologies including Smart City Brake Support which is standard across the Mazda CX-5 range and uses a laser sensor which is mounted at the top of the windscreen to detect a vehicle or obstacle in front of the CX-5 when driving at speeds up to 20mph.  Other safety highlights include front and rear parking sensors, Dynamic Stability Control with Traction Control System, Hill Hold Assist, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, dual front and front side airbags and front and rear curtain airbags, driver and passenger and rear seat audible seatbelt reminder warning plus a fantastic reversing camera. It is no surprise that the CX-5 achieved its high ranking in the survey for the in-car technology, ease of driving and ride quality categories. The two new models feature the addition of a powered tilt-and-slide glass sunroof, full leather trim in Black or Stone (no cost option), a six-way power adjustable driver’s seat and heated front seats with three-stage temperature settings. 

SKYACTIV Technology

Both models are fitted with the company’s innovative fuel-saving SKYACTIV technology; Mazda’s unique SKYACTIV technology delivers major fuel savings and emission reductions without any power or performance compromise. Fuel economy is approximately 61.4, mpg with co2 emissions from 119g/km. Other savings include insurance as the Mazda CX-5 has a lower insurance rating due to the ‘active’ safety technology. The Association of British Insurers lowered the original insurance ratings for the CX-5 by two groups due to the Smart City Brake Support.

The two new models are in showrooms now and available to order, the SE-L Lux is priced from £24,495 and the SE-L Lux is priced from £25,195.
