2016 Mazda CX-5: Bolder
If you thought the Mazda CX-5 was a winner before, you’re going to want to take a seat for this one. With a bold updated exterior look and brand new Mazda Unlimited warranty, the CX-5 has never been a more attractive or practical CUV purchase.
With three models and two engines to choose from, the 2016 Mazda CX-5 could easily find a home in any and every driveway. You’ll find the SKYACTIV-G 2.0L 4-cylinder mill in the Mazda CX-5 GX model that’s good for 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque, and can be equipped with either a 6-speed manual (only FWD) or a 6-speed automatic (FWD and AWD).
Move to the GS and GT models and the engine changes to a SKYACTIV-G 2.5L 4-cyl that pushes out 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque. Both the GS and GT can only be equipped with an automatic transmission. Both all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive are available.
With a solid, stable feel on the road and plenty of oomph below the KODO-designed hood (regardless of engine choice), the 2016 Mazda CX-5 is the ideal choice for those in need of a bit more space and enjoyment behind the wheel.
Sitting behind the wheel of the 2016 Mazda CX-5 is a great place to be, too. Featuring Mazda’s latest in onboard technology, the CX-5 is equipped with an easy-to-use entertainment and navigation system that’s all controlled and accessed via the HMI knob near the shift lever. At-hand buttons are also featured on the steering wheel for hands-free selections while driving, so your attention stays focused on the road ahead.
With the rear seats up, the 2016 Mazda CX-5 features a cavernous 966 litres of cargo space to carry all your goodies (along with five passengers total). And in order to keep all that precious cargo safe and sound, the CX-5 also features available safety features such as blind-spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, and even Smart City Brake Support and Forward Obstruction Warning that will prevent you from rear-ending someone.
All in all, the 2016 Mazda CX-5 proves once again why it is such a capable crossover by checking all the necessary boxes in terms of design, amenities and functionality. Head over to King Mazda today to find out more and book your test drive.
