The Mazda CX-5 is a compact crossover SUV produced by Mazda starting in 2012 for the 2013 model year lineup. It is Mazda's first car featuring its "Kodo" design language, as first shown in the Shinari concept car in May 2011.
It shares its platform with the Mazda3 and Mazda6, and is also the first vehicle featuring the company's full suite of SkyActiv technologies, using a rigid, lightweight platform combined with a series of engines and transmissions to reduce emissions and fuel consumption. SkyActiv engines and transmissions were first featured in the 2012 Mazda3.

The Mazda MINAGI (Japanese: マツダ 勢) concept car, unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, was the first Mazda vehicle to combine the company's Kodo design language and SkyActiv technologies. Its design served as the base for the CX-5, which replaces both the Mazda Tribute and the Mazda CX-7.
The CX-5 was first shown at the September 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. The Japanese model was unveiled at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, while a customized variant featuring a red exterior body colour, alloy wheels painted in matte black, and a slightly lower body height was unveiled in 2012 at the Tokyo Motor Salon.
Production models went on sale in 2012, with a choice of a SkyActiv-D 2.2L or SkyActiv-G 2.0L engine matched to a SkyActiv-Drive six-speed automatic transmission. At its introduction in 2012, it won the Car of the Year Japan Award.
Engine and drivetrain
The CX-5 is available with both front-wheel and all-wheel drive, powered by the PE-VPS 2.0-liter petrol four-cylinder engine capable of 162 bhp (121 kW; 164 PS) and 155 lb⋅ft (210 N⋅m) averaging an estimated 28 mpg‑imp (10 L/100 km; 23 mpg‑US) and emitting around 139 g/km of carbon dioxide.
It is also available with the SH-VPTS 2.2-liter two-stage turbocharged diesel engine with either 147 bhp (110 kW; 149 PS) and 280 lb⋅ft (380 N⋅m) or 173 bhp (129 kW; 175 PS) or 310 lb⋅ft (420 N⋅m), emitting an estimated 119 and 139 g/km of CO2, respectively. Fuel consumption for the entry-level diesel engine with front-wheel drive is 63 mpg‑imp (4.5 L/100 km; 52 mpg‑US).
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the 2013 CX-5 achieved Good crash test ratings in the Moderate Overlap Front, Side, Roof Strength, and Head Restraint & Seats categories, while achieving only a Marginal rating in the Small Overlap Front crash test. Design changes were subsequently made that brought up the Small Overlap Front rating up to a Good rating.
The small overlap test, introduced in 2012 by the IIHS, simulates a frontal collision on 25 percent of the driver's side front corner. Since its adoption, the IIHS has noticed several automakers making non-symmetrical modifications to their vehicles to improve ratings. Another small overlap test was conducted on a number of vehicles, including a 2015 CX-5, but was conducted on the passenger side instead and earned an acceptable rating. Testing showed substantially more intrusion into the passenger side than into the driver's side of the CX-5.
Japanese production of the Mazda CX-5 fitted with a SkyActiv-D 2.2 diesel engine began in January 2012 at the Ujina plant near Mazda's headquarters in Hiroshima. In July 2012, Mazda CX-5 production at Ujina was set to increase to 240,000 units per year by expanding production from Ujina Plant No.2 to Ujina Plant No.1.
The first generation Mazda CX-5 was launched in Malaysia in May 2012 as a fully imported model. At launch, only one trim level was offered, with the 2.0 L SkyActiv-G engine and 6-speed automatic transmission. Consumers, however, had the choice of FWD or AWD. In August 2012, the 19" wheels previously offered were replaced with 17" wheels. In June 2013, locally assembled models became available. The fully imported trim was renamed to High Spec, and a new lower trim level, Mid Spec, was launched. The Mid Spec was only available with FWD, while the High Spec continued to be offered with both FWD and AWD. In April 2015, a new base variant, dubbed the GL, was launched.
The first-generation facelift was launched in Malaysia in May 2015. Initially, the facelift version was fully imported and only available with the 2.5 L engine, but again, consumers could choose between FWD or AWD. The locally assembled facelift version was made available in early 2016 with either a 2.0 L SkyActiv-G engine or a 2.5 L SkyActiv-G engine. The 2.0 L engine could be had with only FWD but two trim levels: Mid Spec and High Spec, with Mid Spec being the more affordable of the two. The 2.5 L engine was only available with one trim level, but with either FWD or AWD. In July 2016, a 2.2 L SkyActiv-D powered, FWD, locally assembled variant was launched in Malaysia. It was positioned in between the 2.5 L SkyActiv-G FWD and 2.5 L SkyActiv-G AWD variant.
The Australian version of the CX-5 was first introduced in 2012 and was available in Maxx, Maxx Sport, Grand Touring and Akera trim levels. Initial models were available with either a 2.0 L petroleum engine or a diesel engine, with front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive as options (FWD was only available with a 2.0-equipped CX-5). An automatic transmission was standard on all-wheel drive models, with manual available on the 2.0 petroleum Maxx FWD).
The American version of the CX-5 debuted at the November 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show. Initially, the only engine available was a direct-injected Skyactiv-G 2.0-liter inline-four petrol engine with 155 bhp (116 kW; 157 PS), which is less than the 163 bhp (122 kW; 165 PS) first reported. However, it is rated at 26 US mpg city and 32 US mpg highway with an automatic transmission, and 26 US mpg city and 35 US mpg highway with a manual transmission.
For the 2014 model year, an available 2.5-liter four-cylinder Skyactiv gas engine was introduced to address the main criticism of the CX-5. It is rated at 184 hp (137 kW; 187 PS) and 185 lb⋅ft (251 N⋅m), with EPA MPG ratings of 25/32 (FWD), 24/30 (AWD). Only the six speed automatic transmission is available for this engine, which is standard on the Touring and Grand Touring trim levels. The base Sport trim level is still offered with the 2.0 L engine. Front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are offered for all trim levels.
The facelifted Mazda CX-5 was unveiled at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show as a 2016 model. Notable changes include updates to exterior styling, reductions in road noise, an improved infotainment system, and a sport mode for the six-speed automatic transmission. The Technology package on Touring & Grand Touring Models also get LED headlights, LED fog lights and combination LED tail lights.
The SkyActiv-G 2.5 engine was made standard on all United States trim levels, except the base-level Sport equipped with the six-speed manual transmission and front wheel drive, which retained the 2.0 liter powerplant.
- 2016.5 North American update
At the end of 2015, Mazda increased the level of standard equipment offered in the United States and Canada, labelling the upgraded vehicles as 2016.5 models.
In the United States, a backup camera and touchscreen infotainment system were made standard on the base Sport trim level with the automatic transmission, leaving the manual-transmission Sport as the only model to lack these features. The navigation system became standard on the mid-level Touring and top-level Grand Touring trim levels, along with heated front seats on the Touring.
List prices remained the same or increased, although the Touring and Grand Touring price increases were less than the premiums previously charged for the optional navigation system.
In Canada, the mid-level GS and top-level GT trim levels received standard navigation systems, and the GT also received a power adjustable driver's seat with memory. The SkyActiv-G 2.5 engine was made standard on the base-level GX with the automatic transmission; the GX with the manual transmission became the only trim level to retain the 2.0-liter engine, similar to the lineup in the United States.
