Mazda CX-5 sports a new upmarket design

Roadshow
Mazda's never been one to design commodities. No they design real actual cars that we want to drive. They design beautiful machines that really provide a link between the driver and the vehicle. They've done this with their coder design language over the past few years. But now with this evolution of a new CX5, I think we're gonna be seeing more fluid, more car as art design language. In the near future. Today at the LA Auto Show, we saw the new CX 5, which has got a great revised new front fascia. It's got a more sophisticated grill, some more squinty headlights, and there's all kinds of design queues in this that really give it the idea of being connected with the road, being very, very planted, yet still aggressive In the Mazda CX5 the form is paramount, and they have enhanced that form with a new paint color called soul red crystal. So this is really neat. When you look at the paint reflects, you see some very high highlights and some very low low-lights, almost black. This really put an emphasis on that form. The interior features a lot of great contrast with the cream-colored seats and then the dark dashboard. It really brings about a feeling of quiet sophistication that the CX5 maybe lacked before. Well, and if you wanted a revised power plan, doesn't look like that's going to happen. We'll probably get the same 2.5 liter gasoline engine, good for 184 horsepower and 185 pound feet of torque. The car will be on sale in Japan first in February and then it will come to the states.
