Thanks to reader Liffey for sending this in. What we have here is the leaked full brochure and the pricelist for the new Mazda CX-5 ahead of its launch, which confirms the info in the online ads Anthony dug up earlier. If the scan resolution isn’t all that hot, don’t fret, I’ve strained my eyes and plucked the juicy bits for your reading pleasure.
From what I can deduce from the brochure, the CX-5 is fully imported from Japan and gets the full SkyActiv components – engine, transmission, body and chassis.
Only one engine will be available at launch, and that is the SkyActiv-G 2.0 petrol engine. It features a 4-2-1 exhaust system, cavity pistons, multi-hole injectors and a 13.0:1 compression ratio. The engine is capable of generating 155 hp and 200 Nm of torque, and the mill is mated to a SkyActiv-Drive six-speed automatic transmission that will drive either two-wheels or four, depending on the variant.
The CX-5 also features the SkyActiv-Body that is said to be 30% more rigid and 8% lighter. The CX-5 is 4,450 mm long (without number plate holder), 1,840 mm wide (with wheel arch molding) and 1,670 mm tall (with roof rails and antenna). The wheelbase measures at 2,700 mm.
The additional rigidity and lightness of the body contributes to the SkyActiv-Chassis, which provides high levels of balance between low- to mid-speed agility and high-speed stability. The suspension setup of the CX-5 consists of MacPherson struts for the front and multilinks for the rear.
The CX-5 specified for the Malaysian market comes with bi-xenon headlamps, day-running lights, front wipers with rain sensor, auto cruise and six air bags, just to name a few, as standard. The CX-5 also included with the price is the Special Accessories Package, which is made up of a multi-information display with navigation, nine-speaker Bose sound system, 19-inch alloy wheels, electric sunroof, leather seats and a reverse camera with colour TFT.
How much does Bermaz wants for the CX-5? Well, as indicated in the price list: RM159,500 for the 2WD and RM169,760 for the 4WD.
