The 2015 Mazda CX-5 along with the 2015 Mazda6 have been introduced ahead of their 2015 Geneva Motor Show debut.
Improved features and technology systemsBoth models are said to be introduced with ‘more advanced safety technology, more powertrain choices and a new more refined interior’. Mazda was a bit coy on specifics but confirmed the models will be equipped with Adaptive LED Headlights - an autonomous high-beam system with four independently controllable blocks of LEDs per headlamp.
The cars will further benefit from new safety features including Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) which extends the existing Rear Vehicle Monitoring (RVM) system’s range while also adding Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), which warns the driver of approaching vehicles when reversing.
Lane-keep Assist System (LAS) provides steering torque assistance to help prevent unintentional lane changes, thus complementing the Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS).
Additional enhancements will come in form of a SKYACTIV-D 2.2 clean diesel fitted to the Mazda6 and is available with Mazda’s new-generation all-wheel drive (AWD) system. The engine also features the world’s first front wheel slip warning detection system and now employs a specially developed low -viscosity oil to further improve fuel economy. The 2015 Mazda CX-5 will be offered with a 2.5-litre SKYACTIV-G petrol engine with i- ELOOP technology.
