To create some hype for the new CX-5 crossover prior to its market launch, Mazda released an animated commercial.
It is actually two commercials in one. Dr. Seuss’ characters help promoting the CX-5 and it then promotes Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax movie.
The ad might seem to be appealing only to the children who would go and see the animation, but it is actually aimed at their parents. And let’s be honest any other way to talk about the SKYACTIV technology and its environmental benefits would have been catastrophically boring.
The SKYACTIV-G 2.0 petrol engine models have the world highest compression ratio of 14.0:1, and their 4-2-1 exhaust system prevents knocking and provides abundant torque from low engine speeds, enabling acceleration that precisely matches the driver’s intention. Models with this engine achieve outstanding fuel economy, precise response, and a high-quality, linear and rewarding ride:
- FWD: Maximum torque of 210 NM at 4,000 rpm and maximum power of 121 kW/ 165 PS at 6,000 rpm
- AWD: Maximum torque of 208 NM at 4,000 rpm and maximum power of 118 kW/ 160 PS at 6,000 rpm
The car in the advert looks a helluva lot better than the real thing, so make sure you check that out before placing your order because you liked what you saw!
