The Mazda CX-5 may not be the very first crossover SUV produced by this Japanese marque, but it certainly is a pioneer in a few other things. The model was meant to take the torch from its predecessors, the Tribute and the CX-5. The crossover was built over sturdy but lightweight chassis. This was just the base for the new SUV. To make things interesting to the new generation of the automotive market, Mazda finally introduced the Skyactiv Technology together with the KODO -Soul of Motion design language.
There was a good part of the .90s where vehicles that carry the Mazda badge had hints of Ford in its design and engineering. But the partnership eventually came to an end. Just like its motherland, Mazda had to learn to stand on itself once again. In its effort to reinvent itself, Mazda dedicated a whole bunch of effort to make distinguishable changes for its vehicles. Therefore, the CX-5 is considered to be one of the more recent milestones in the history of Mazda.
A decade after the turn of the millennium, Mazda introduced a new series of technologies meant to bring its vehicles to new heights. It was called the SKYACTIV to mark the marque\'s quest for unparalleled innovation. By incorporating it to the modern line-up, the vehicles should be able to achieve better fuel efficiency and performance. This concept redesigned how the engine, transmission, and platforms were made. And in the end, Mazda was able to produce better vehicles starting with the CX-5. As the crossover SUV was launched in 2012, it also became the perfect stage for people to become aware of the latest innovations developed by Mazda.
The creation of the CX-5 was a chance for Mazda to rejuvenate its appeal to the market. While the technical department managed to create advancements to boost vehicle performance, other designers spent a generous amount of effort to make Mazda vehicles distinct with just one look. This resulted to the development of the KODO -Soul of Motion. The design language was created by Mazda\'s head designer Ikuo Maeda.It gives off the impression that the car is not merely pieces of metal bolted to each other for driving. Mazda wanted the market to understand that vehicles are comparable to a living creature. This should enhance the bond that can be developed between man and machine. Designers used cues from the power and elegance that can be observed when a wild animal hunts for its prey in the wilderness.
Four years after the CX-5 was first launched, Mazda continues to redesign the vehicle to make it more appealing to the evolving market. Right now, the crossover received a facelift to reassert itself in the segment. There are a few improvements on the aesthetics, powertrain, and creature comforts. But it is expected that the automotive world would be wanting more than just a facelift in the next couple of years. So the question still remains: what\'s going to happen with the new generation CX-5?
