The Mazda CX-5 launches at Frankfurt

As you can tell the Frankfurt motor show is in full flight at the moment and this just hit our inbox from Mazda Ireland. The all new CX-5 looks good and remarkably looks like the concept pictures, that’s one thing I do like about Mazda the show a drawing and then make the car.

The world premiere of the all-new Mazda CX-5 at Frankfurt begins a new era for the Mazda brand. The all-new compact crossover SUV is the first of a new-generation of Mazda products that will adopt the full range of unique Mazda-developed SKYACTIV Technology and the exciting new design language called ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’. It will be available in three completely new engines with record-breaking compression ratios of 14:1 – a SKYACTIV-D 2.2 diesel with two-stage turbocharger in two power derivatives, and a SKYACTIV-G 2.0 direct-injection petrol – coupled to the new SKYACTIV-DRIVE six-speed automatic or the new SKYACTIV-MT six-speed manual.

I do hope it’s in production sooner rather than later. Stay tuned for more interesting stuff from Frankfurt
