Now, with G-Vectoring Control (GVC)

Smooth transitions between G-forces when braking, turning and accelerating are an essential element of Jinba-ittai, and have been a major development focus at Mazda for many years. This unified feeling to braking, steering and acceleration, along with consistent feedback, allows the driver to control the vehicle easily and precisely. And now G-Vectoring Control (GVC) – the debut technology of SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS – takes this dynamic, unified feel to an even higher level. It’s a logical extension of Mazda’s human-centric design and engineering philosophy that not only concentrates on mechanical efficiency but also considers how a vehicle should be in light of human characteristics. GVC is a new approach to controlling vehicle dynamics that uses the engine to enhance chassis performance, and it gives Mazda vehicles even smoother transitions between G-forces in all driving scenarios.



The first to break frontiers.

CX-5 was the first model to be imbued with KODO – Soul of Motion, embracing a beautifully-sculpted body that articulates vitality and speed. It’s all expressed in the car’s definitive lines and bold curves that sweep from front to rear, manifesting a form that is unmistakably sporty yet elegant, rugged yet eminent.




CX-5 provides all the innovative utility you expect in a genuine active lifestyle vehicle. The world’s first remote control fold-down 4:2:4 rear seats are just one outstanding example: the 4:2:4 configuration lets you fold down just the centre seat, so you can carry long items like flat-pack furniture even with two child seats in place. With the rear seats in use, you have 403 litres of space – enough for four Samsonite 67cm suitcases. And with all three seats folded, there’s 1,560 litres of carrying capacity that even accommodates two mountain bikes with front wheels removed.



The Zoom-Zoom performance that makes Mazda the favourite of drivers worldwide.

The lockup range is extended to nearly 90%, so you do not only enjoy fast, smooth gearshifts, you also get the direct, connected feel of a manual transmission. Plus a newly-developed control module executes gearshifting with the precision of a professional racing driver — it can even perfectly rev-match downshifts. And as an added bonus, SKYACTIV-Drive also improves fuel efficiency by up to 7%.


SKYACTIV direct-injection 2.0L and 2.5L petrol engines set the new standard for fuel efficiency and emission control.

High-efficiency six-speed AT combines the best aspects of every modern transmission



At Mazda, we believe genuine safety can only be realized when driver awareness and control is maximized so that the risk of accidents is minimized. Mazda CX-5 is equipped with i-ACTIVESENSE – Mazda’s integrated suite of advanced safety technologies designed to inform, support and protect.

Adaptive LED Headlights (ALH)

Adaptive LED Headlights (ALH)

ALH offers the driver greater support for recognizing potential hazards when driving at night. The system improves night visibility and helps the driver avoid hazardous situations by combining the use of a new 12-block array Glare-free High Beam (featuring an adjustable illumination range) and Wide-range Low Beam.

Lane-keep assist systems (LAS)1

Lane-keep Assist System (LAS)

A forward sensing camera detects lane markings and assists the steering to keep you in lane. The system also alerts you when it judges an unintended lane departure is imminent by vibrating the steering wheel or with an audible alarm. When the system determines lane departure is intentional (use of turn signals, etc) steering assistance is cancelled and no warnings are given. The system operates at speeds above approximately 60km/h

Blind spot monitoring (BSM)

Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM)

BSM uses 24GHz quasi-milliwave radar sensors to detect vehicles in the blind spots behind and to the side, and using a turn signal while BSM detects a vehicle triggers visual and audio warnings.

Adaptive Front-Lighting System (AFS)

Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS)

AFS promotes safer driving by allowing you to see further at intersections or around curves at night. Taking inputs from the steering angle and vehicle speed, AFS predicts the shape of the road and directs the headlamps’ beams in the direction of travel, illuminating the path CX-5 will actually follow.

Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)

Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)

LDWS senses lane markings on the road surface. When the system predicts departure from the lane it issues an audible warning similar to the noise a car makes when it runs onto a rumble strip to prompt timely steering corrections. The system assesses driver inputs such as use of the turn signals to weed out false alarms.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)

Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)

RCTA uses the same sensors as BSM to alert the driver when it detects vehicles approaching from either side during reversing operations. Warnings are given by a flashing indicator in the door mirror and a beep.

Advanced smart city brake support (advanced SCBCS)

Advanced Smart City Brake Support
(Advanced SCBS)

With the high-performance forward sensing camera, Advanced SCBS detects vehicles and pedestrians* in front of the vehicle and automatically applies the brakes to help avoid collisions and mitigate collision damage while driving between approximately 4 and 80km/h (sensing a vehicle ahead) or between approximately 10 and 80km/h (sensing a pedestrian).

*Detection of pedestrians and consequent automatic braking are not available in certain countries and regions.

Driver Attention Alert(DAA)

Driver Attention Alert (DAA)

DAA uses information such as steering wheel angle, vehicle speed, and output from the forward sensing camera to assess the driver’s condition and help prevent accidents caused by fatigue or lowered alertness. The system monitors and compares current behaviour with learned data on how the driver performs when fresh, and suggests a rest break when a significant difference is detected.

Smart City Break Support (SCBS R)

Smart City Brake Support (SCBS R)

Ultrasonic sensors mounted on the rear bumper allow SCBS R to detect vehicles and obstacles behind when reversing at speeds between approximately 2 and 8km/h. If an object is detected, the system automatically applies the brakes to help mitigate collision damage.

Other safety measures

other-safety_1 (1)

A full complement of airbags — front, front seat side, curtain — provide another layer of protection in depth against physical shock and injury in a collision.

other-safety_2 (1)

The body provides excellent collision safety performance. Extensive use of ultra-high-tensile steel gives strength with low weight, while the framework absorbs and channels energy away from the cabin.



The meters feature a muted sheen and white raised numbers for enhanced legibility. The needles have a metallic appearance similar to a sports car’s.


The highly efficient 6-speed SKYACTIV DRIVE brings you the best aspects of every type of transmission. Thanks to a lockup range extended to nearly 90%, you enjoy the best of both worlds: fast, smooth gear-shifting and the direct, connected feel of a manual transmission.


The full-auto dual-zone air conditioning system is thoroughly refined to achieve top-level cooling performance to give superior climate control and enhanced comfort no matter where you sit.

The rear seat adopts Mazda’s first two-step reclining mechanism, allowing the seatback to be leaned back to 28° so that rear passengers can find a more comfortable position. Furthermore, air-conditioning vents are mounted on the rear of the floor console for greater comfort.

Newly adopted auto-hold function retains braking pressure when the driver’s foot is removed from the brake pedal after coming to a complete stop, and quickly releases it when the driver takes action to move again. This realizes greater comfort and convenience when driving in the city

The power liftgate employs a compact, lightweight and quiet spindle damper unit, opening and closing by a simple switch operation. Liftgate opening height is freely settable with a button on the key fob. Touch sensors help prevent items from getting trapped in the liftgate.
