Mazda Philippines Unveils 2024 CX-5 Range

March 22, 2024, Manila, Philippines--Mazda Philippines unifies the motif of the entire CX-5 line-up with the introduction of the new 2.0L Sport and 2.5L AWD Sport. These two variants join the most powerful offering in its segmeant, the CX-5 2.5L AWD Turbo. Redefining the segment with heightened levels of style, performance, and craftsmanship, the new CX-5 range is made for those who live their lives by their own rules.

“As the best-selling model in Mazda Philippines’ line-up, the CX-5 remains a centerpiece of Mazda engineering,” shares Steven Tan, president and CEO of Mazda Philippines. “Following the success of the CX-5 Turbo—itself a compact SUV that offers unmatched dynamics and capability—the arrival of the sharpened CX-5 range for 2024 offers a blend of functionality and versatility in a form that has a heightened sense of individuality.”

The 2024 CX-5 range now shares the same updated KODO design language that first debuted on the 2.5L AWD Turbo. The new interpretation brings more dynamism and deeper emotional appeal that convey luxury and quality.

The new three-dimensional grille and more robust yet elegant signature wing design bring a sense of confidence to the CX-5. The impression of a floating front end creates a touch of depth that echoes the passion imbued in the new design. Showcasing the “less is more” Japanese aesthetic, the new CX-5 range has simplified bumper elements resembling a sculpted form, echoing the same design ethos found in the Mazda3 and CX-30.

Complementing the new fascia, the new CX-5 range has revised headlamp and taillamp designs with LED technology for maximum vision at night. Together with the Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS) with Auto Leveling and High Beam Control, safer journeys are realized. Reinforcing its signature look, the new quad LED daytime running lights and LED rear signature taillamps project a wider, sportier stance.

The new CX-5 range also features revised alloy wheel designs. The 2.0L Sport has 17-inch Silver Metallic Aluminum Alloy Wheels, moving up to 19-inch Diamond Cut Aluminum Alloy Wheels on the 2.5L AWD Sport. The 2.5L AWD Turbo retains its 19-inch Bright Silver Aluminum Alloy Wheels.

Further fortifying its solid one-piece presence, the 2.5L AWD Turbo’s claddings are painted in the same shade as the body. This creates a truly eye-catching form that reflects the interplay of light and shadow.

The new CX-5 range is available in nine colors, enabling customers to choose one that best represents their personality. Soul Red Crystal, Machine Gray, Polymetal Gray, Deep Crystal Blue, and Jet Black are available across all variants, while Snowflake White Pearl and the new Platinum Quartz are available on the 2.0L Sport and 2.5L AWD Sport. Two shades—Rhodium White Premium and Zircon Sand are exclusive to the 2.5L AWD Turbo.

Continuing with Mazda’s Human-Centric development, the CX-5 range adopts principles first used by Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture. This starts with the new seat design which preserves the spine’s natural S-shaped curve. This results in less head movement, making it easier for drivers to maintain a stable line of sight and for passengers to sit in relaxed comfort all throughout the drive. Likewise, a reinforced body frame using damping adhesives lessens the intrusion of vibrations and sound into the cabin.

Increased rigidity in the seat frame mounts likewise reduces the need for occupants to manually keep their balance, while re-tuned spring and damper characteristics in the suspension also help mitigate the occupants’ discomfort and relieve them of physical burden when driving over bumpy roads. Complementing all these developments is the more distinctive cabin quietness achieved through a new floor panel design that minimizes resonance of road and tire noise.

The CX-5 is an SUV rich in detail. Built to the highest levels of Japanese quality and precision, the 2024 range represents genuine luxury that is a class above.

The seats are finished in Black Leather with Orange Stitching on the 2.0L Sport and 2.5L AWD Sport. The 2.5L AWD Turbo elevates this experience further with its Deep Red Nappa Leather seats. All variants feature 10-way power adjustment for the driver and 6-way power adjust for the front passenger seat, with the 2.5L AWD Turbo getting standard front seat ventilation.

Seamless smartphone connectivity is guaranteed with the CX-5’s 8-inch Mazda Connect infotainment system. For 2024, the entire range comes standard with the added convenience of wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless device charging, in addition to Android Auto connectivity.

Across the range, the 7-inch LCD display is updated with dedicated graphics for each drive mode, while the windshield-projected Active Driving Display continues to provide essential driving data within the driver’s line of sight. The premium 10-speaker Bose sound system plays every soundtrack with high fidelity, while an electric sunroof on the 2.5L AWD Sport and 2.5L AWD Turbo brightens up the cabin and allows fresh air to permeate in the living space.

The 40-20-40 split-folding of the rear seatbacks allows long objects to be stored along the length of the CX-5 while maximizing seating options for passengers. A power liftgate makes access and loading easier, while a raised cargo level with a dividing floor unlocks possibilities for various loading options. A reversible cargo floor, with one side being water-proof, makes it easy and convenient to clean spills and residue from weekend getaways to the beach, trails, campsite, or any other adventure.

For 2024, the new CX-5 range is powered by a family of Skyactiv-G engines, all of which offer excellent real-world performance and fuel economy.

The 2.0L Sport is powered by the 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G engine with 155 PS at 6,000 rpm and 200 Nm at 4,000 rpm. The 2.5L AWD Sport bumps that up to 190 PS at 6,000 rpm and 252 Nm at 4,000 rpm. Finally, the 2.5L AWD Turbo’s Skyactiv-G 2.5T engine still makes it the most powerful offering in its class with up to 253 PS at 5,000 rpm and 434 Nm from as low as 2,000 rpm. All engines are mated to the proven six-speed Skyactiv-Drive automatic with paddle shifters.

Jinba Ittai—the feeling of oneness between horse and rider—remains a central tenet to the new CX-5’s handling. Helping it drive like an extension of the driver’s body is G-Vectoring Control Plus. This system manages engine power and braking to make cornering smoother and to stabilize the vehicle along straightaways, making for an engaging and confidence-inspiring drive.

On the 2.5L AWD Sport and 2.5L AWD Turbo, the advanced Mazda i-Activ All-Wheel Drive system enhances safety and improves drivability. The system provides valuable grip on all four wheels as needed over a variety of surfaces, without the penalty of increased fuel consumption as found in mechanical AWD systems. 

Making use of various sensors and systems in the car to measure wheel speed, traction, road direction, angle and even weather, the CX-5’s i-Activ AWD system can proactively control the distribution of torque and secure take-off, acceleration, cornering, and braking, without letting the tires slip in any direction—forward, backwards, or sideways.

Off-Road Traction Assist, integrated into the new Mazda Intelligent Drive Select (Mi-Drive) in the 2.5L AWD Sport, maximizes available traction by reducing power and applying brakes to the spinning wheels to help the vehicle regain grip and free itself from getting stuck in mud, sand, gravel, and other challenging terrain.

The Mazda CX-5 has always excelled in safety. The range comes with standard Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, while the 2.5L AWD Turbo uses its millimeter wave radar and camera to offer advanced i-Activsense driver assist features. Mazda Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning with Lane-Keep Assist, Smart Brake Support, front and rear Smart City Brake Support, and Driver Attention Alert all work together to create a safer, more confident driving environment. 

Together with front and rear parking sensors and a 360-degree camera, the new CX-5 enhances driver awareness for an even more pleasurable, convenient, and safe drive wherever the destination may be.

Recognizing the various needs of the local market and its wide-ranging clientele, Mazda Philippines has priced the CX-5 range starting at P 1,950,000 for the CX-5 2.0L Sport. The CX-5 2.5L AWD Sport is priced at P 2,050,000, while the CX-5 2.5L AWD Turbo is priced at P 2,430,000.
