The 2017 Mazda CX-5 an ideal size that many people are looking for. It is more spacious than the CX-5 and more maneuverable and compact than the CX-9. The CX-5 has been redesigned for the 2017 model year, and drivers have plenty to look forward to, from the sleek KODO design language to the powerfully efficient SKYACTIV powertrain. Factor in the latest safety and driver-assistive technologies and a luxury feel, and you will see why Virginia drivers love the Mazda CX-5.

Exterior Features of the 2017 Mazda CX-5

The exterior of the Mazda CX-5 makes quite an impression with its KODO Soul of Motion design language. The artisans behind this SUV aimed to capture the feeling of movement, specifically when a predator is about to pounce on its prey. The result is a bold SUV that feels aggressively designed and catches the eye. There is even a new Soul Red Crystal exterior color that provides additional luster, richness, and depth via its three-layer paint process, something that also helps convey a sense of movement, even when the CX-5 is parked. If you are used to the previous CX-5 model years, you will notice additional chrome on the 2017 version, plus curves that have become more deeply stamped. The mirrors are smaller, the beltline is lower, and the roof pillars were moved back, all to enhance your view. Keyless entry makes getting into your Mazda CX-5 simple, while the LED headlights, fog lights, and taillights illuminate the road in front of you while enhancing the silhouette. You can also get a power moonroof and a power liftgate for more fresh air and convenience, respectively.

2017 Mazda CX-5 Interior Features

Mazda created the 2017 CX-5's cabin with the driver in mind. The cabin focuses on you as you sit behind the wheel, aiming to maximize your enjoyment of driving. This principle is found across the Mazda lineup. In the CX-5, it comes from premium materials and smooth lines. Choose from leatherette or leather upholstery to help you get comfortable. The incredibly quiet interior also helps you focus on the road, courtesy of additional sound deadening, such as the perforations within the available leather seats and minimized rattling of door panels. The Commander Control knob is an innovative way to control the vehicle's infotainment system yet is intuitive enough that everyone should figure it out within minutes. Put simply, the overall design of the CX-5's cabin now more closely resembles the CX-9, including its higher center console. The rear seats have also improved, now offering heating and reclining along with better shaping. Even the steering wheel can be heated.

Feel the 2017 Mazda CX-5 Perform

You can pick from three powertrains on the CX-5, a 2.2-liter turbodiesel, a 2-liter gas 4-cylinder, and 2.5-liter 4-cylinder, all with a 6-speed automatic. This diesel engine is a new choice for the American market, an excellent option for those who prefer the feel of a diesel powertrain. For the utmost control in any weather conditions or on any road, configure your 2017 Mazda CX-5 with predictive i-ACTIV AWD. This system monitors everything imaginable from your braking patterns to the exterior temperature as a way to predict when AWD may become necessary to optimize traction - before your wheels ever get the chance to slip. The CX-5 also features the latest Mazda technology, SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS featuring G-Vectoring Control. This system provides a subtle difference in performance via more precise steering.
