Following Bermaz’s recent preview of its locally-assembled (CKD) version of the facelifted Mazda CX-5, dealers have revealed the pricing of the SUV, in both its 2.0 and 2.5 litre guise, with the latter being previously offered as a fully-imported model. Not surprisingly, the 2.5L CX-5 is cheaper than before, but the 2.0L models appear to get price hikes, though there are revisions to the equipment list of all models.

Starting with the 2.0 litre variants, buyers will get a choice of two 2WD variants (the 4WD model is no longer offered) – GL and GLS – with the former priced at RM128,375.50 (solid) and RM128,775.50 (metallic), while the latter is priced at RM142,375.50 (solid) and RM142,775.50 (metallic). The new price tags represent a RM2,610 hike from Bermaz’s previous offerings of the 2.0L 2WD CX-5 (GL and High-spec). Keep in mind that all prices quoted here at on-the-road without insurance.

However, the price hike is accompanied by a bump in the spec sheet. For starters, the new MZD Connect infotainment system is now available on the GL, linked to a six-speaker sound system. Beyond that, the GL retains its automatic projector halogen headlights and bulb-type fog lights and tail lights, 17-inch alloys, push-start button and fabric manually-adjustable seats.

Moving on to the 2.0L GLS variant, LED self-levelling adaptive LED headlights with LED daytime running lights now come as standard along with front parking sensors and navigation function for the MZD (RM1,270 option on the GL). As seen on the previous High-spec variant, leather seats are fitted on the GLS, but can now be specified on the GL as well (RM2,900 option).

As for the 2.5L CX-5, the variants mirror the previous CBU offerings – 2WD and 4WD – although they both now come with the ‘GLS’ moniker at the end. Pricing wise, the 2.5L CX-5 2WD now starts at RM154,766.70 (solid)/RM155,166.70 (metallic), while the 4WD model is priced at RM166,266.70 (solid) and RM166,666.70 (metallic). This makes the CKD versions cheaper by more than RM10,000 compared to the previous CBU model.

The more inviting price tag does come with a “give and take” scenario in the equipment list. What’s been given is most obvious – new 19-inch alloy wheels (with 225/55R19 tyres) that replace the 17-inch on the CBUs. They follow the same silver-finished design of the pre-facelifted 2.5L CKD model, so no fancy two-tone design here.

Other additions to the equipment list include the same LED headlights (previously bi-xenons) and tail lights, and the MZD Connect infotainment system (with navigation standard on both variants). As we said earlier, there is a bit of “give and take” here, so the electric sunroof and Bose nine-speaker sound system that came standard in the CBU model, are now no longer present.

Powering the facelifted CX-5 are the familiar the 2.0 litre and 2.5 litre SkyActiv-G direct-injected four-cylinder petrol engines. The former outputs 153 hp at 6,000 rpm and 200 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm, and the latter produces 184 hp at 5,700 rpm and 250 Nm of torque at 3,250 rpm. The engines are paired to six-speed SkyActiv-Drive automatic transmission, which now receives a new, more responsive Sport mode, selectable via a rocker switch on the base of the gear lever.

Similarly, the safety suite appears unchanged, with all models getting six airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and traction control. Though Bermaz has yet to issue its official pricing for the CKD CX-5, past history with the CX-3, where dealers revealed the crossover’s prices ahead of its launch, did prove to be accurate. Does the Mazda CX-5 appear to be a better proposition or will you be considering its competitors like the Honda CR-V and Hyundai Tucson instead?
