History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Mazda CX-5 page on 12 November 2018, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Mazda CX-5 is a compact crossover produced by Mazda starting in 2012 for the 2013 model year lineup. It is Mazda's first car featuring the new KODO – Soul of Motion Design language first shown in the Shinari concept vehicle in May 2011. It shares a platform with Mazda3 and Mazda6.

It is also the first vehicle featuring the company's full Skyactiv Technology suite, including a rigid, lightweight platform, combined with a new series of efficient engines and transmissions resulting in reduced emissions and fuel consumption. The Skyactiv Engine and Transmission Technologies were first released in the 2012 Mazda3 compact sedan and hatchback.

The design was based on the Mazda MINAGI. The Mazda CX-5 replaces both the Mazda Tribute and the Mazda CX-7.

The Japanese model was unveiled at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, along with a customized variant featuring a red exterior body color, with alloy wheels painted in matte-black and a slightly lower body height, which was unveiled in later 2012 at the Tokyo Motor Salon.

Production models went on sale in 2012, with a choice of SKYACTIV-D 2.2 or SKYACTIV-G 2.0 engines, matched to SKYACTIV-DRIVE six-speed automatic transmissions. At its introduction in 2012, it won the Car of the Year Japan Award.
