Production of Mazda’s new CX-5 compact SUV has commenced in Japan. Set to go on sale in company’s homeland in February 2017 - then globally shortly after - Mazda says it has refined virtually every aspect of the new car. First unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show, it's powered by a choice of two petrol engines as well as a 2.2-litre diesel unit. Featuring G-Vectoring Control for improved dynamic handling the interior has a strong focus on ‘human sensibilities’ with a first in class windscreen head-up display.
Mazda has refreshed its Saloon and Estate Mazda6 models. Highlights include technology updates, interior improvements and the introduction of G-Vectoring Control - which varies engine torque to each individual wheel, improving handling. As before, there are two petrol and two diesel engines on offer, although the 2.2 diesel unit now has reduced turbo lag and more torque. Prices are set to remain unchanged when the revamped Mazda6 goes on sale later this year.
