GALLERY: 2016 Mazda CX-5 2.0L – Mid and High Spec

2016 Mazda CX-5 2.0L 2WD High Spec facelift 1

Bermaz recently introduced the facelifted 2016 Mazda CX-5 in Malaysia, which is now CKD locally-assembled. While we have already brought you photos of the SUV in both its 2.5L 2WD and 2.5L 4WD versions, we (along with the Mazda Zoom Zoom Malaysia FB page) now bring you the 2.0L models in Mid Spec and High Spec for those who are looking at purchasing a CX-5, but don’t want to go beyond the RM150k mark.

As a recap, the facelifted Mazda CX-5 introduces a few visual changes keep things updated. At the front, there is a new five-bar grille (with front parking sensors on the High Spec) and redesigned projector fog lights sitting in new surrounds.

Only the High Spec benefits from self-levelling LED headlights (with LED DRLs and Adaptive Front-lighting System), while the Mid Spec makes do with just halogen projectors. LED tail lights are also exclusive to the High Spec model. Moving on, all 2.0L CX-5s get 17-inch alloy wheels (with 225/65R17 tyres), identical in design to those on the previous CBU 2.5L units, rather than the new CKD 2.5L’s 19-inch items.

Shifting into the cabin, the CX-5 carries the same layout as before. Like the 2.5L versions, both the 2.0L Mid and High Spec get Mazda’s MZD Connect infotainment system with a seven-inch touchscreen and Commander Control knob. The system features a variety of inputs (USB, AUX, Bluetooth and CD), but only the High Spec gets navigation as standard. Should you want it on the Mid Spec, it’s a RM1,270 option.

Similarly, leather seats are now available on the High Spec, while the Mid Spec gets fabric ones instead (leather seats are a RM2,900 cost option). An electric-powered driver seat (with lumbar support) is located on the High Spec, along with a manually-adjustable passenger one (Mid Spec gets manual ones only). Other highlights include a silver dashboard trim (previously piano black), leather trim pieces (including around the MZD Connect screen) redesigned air-concontrol switchgear, gear lever and an electronic parking brake.

Under the hood of both variants, you’ll find a 2.0 litre SkyActiv-G direct-injected four-cylinder petrol engine, providing 155 hp at 6,000 rpm and 200 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed SkyActiv-Drive automatic (with selectable Sport mode), driving the front wheels.

Safety-wise, the CX-5 maintains its six airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist, tyre pressure monitor, emergency stop signal, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and traction control. The suite is available across the entire model range.

As for pricing, you’ll be paying RM128,575 (solid) and RM129,975 (metallic) for the base model Mazda CX-5 2.0L 2WD Mid Spec. Moving upwards, the 2.0L 2WD High Spec is priced at RM142,575 (solid) and RM142,975 (metallic).

        “Both get an electric-powered driver seat (with lumbar support) and a manually-adjustable passenger one. ”

        But I see only manual driver seat for the GL spec car in the last picture.

    Mazda CX-5 2.5L 4WD
    Honda CR-V 2.4L 4WD

    If I buy one of them this year, which one has better resale value three years from now?
