MOTORISTS in the Chelmsford area can now experience the unique qualities of the Mazda brand and sample the pioneering all-new Mazda CX-5 compact SUV for the first time at the newly opened Mack Motors showroom in Gloucester Avenue.
All-new from the ground up, the CX-5 incorporates Mazda's new fuel-saving SKYACTIV technology, demonstrating the Japanese brand's ability to throw out the rule book and start over using engineering expertise to create a vehicle that revolutionises the SUV segment of the car industry.
CX-5 dramatically improves efficiency, safety and overall performance.
Lighter, yet stronger than any of its competitors, the CX-5 offers a combination of best-in-class economy, sleek design, a spacious interior, large cargo bay, generous equipment, optimum safety and a choice of three lively engines, which set it apart from the average SUV.
"Over the years, Mazda has developed vehicles with the style, efficiency, safety and fun-to-drive performance that customers love," said Shaun McElhinney, Dealer Principal, Mack Motors. "The launch of the CX-5 brings with it an even fresher appeal to Mazda that meets the requirements of today's modern customer. Our opening launch activity gives Chelmsford motorists the opportunity to see this surprising family car for themselves and discover exactly what it has to offer."
With CX-5, Mazda has re-invented the engine's make-up, made the bodyshell lighter and stronger using high tensile steel and developed a new six-speed manual gearbox (based on the MX-5 sports car's transmission) and a new six-speed automatic. These features ensure that the CX-5 cuts emissions, improves fuel economy, and still retains the brand's fun-to-drive nature.
The 18-strong Mazda CX-5 model range is priced from just £21,395, rising to £28,795 (OTR). It offers the choice of three engines: 2.0 165ps petrol, 2.2 150ps diesel and 2.2 175ps diesel. Equipment is generous across the model range, including a navigation system featuring TomTom® technology, an advanced safety system with automatic braking to prevent low speed collisions, lane departure warning, blind spot alerts and an automatic main beam function (depending on model).
