Delivering even greater value for money before, Mazda is launching a new high-spec trim level for the CX-5 crossover in the UK. The new Mazda CX-5 SE-L Lux adds sunroof, power adjusted driver’s seat, leather trim and heated front seats, and starts from £24,495.
Or, you can pay £25,195 and get the SE-L Lux Nav, which obviously comes with navigation. These models may offer good features and equipment, but they are not the best version of the CX-5, as they are based on the 2.2-litre diesel 150ps 2WD model with a manual transmission. If you are getting a crossover, get the 4WD. The 2WD will be like a giant hatchback, and just as capable.
That said, the equipment list really is very tempting, with items like a powered tilt-and-slide glass sunroof, full leather trim in Black or Stone (no cost option), a six-way power adjustable driver’s seat and heated front seats with three-stage temperature settings.
Mazda CX-5 range in the UK includes 20 different models priced from £21,595 to £29,395. CO2 emissions start at 119g/km with fuel economy up to 61.4mpg.
“Many potential Mazda customers have expressed an interest in being able to acquire a CX-5 with a sunroof and leather trim without having to purchase a range-topping Sport model. Now, responding to that latent demand, we are adding two models to our Mazda CX-5 range, based on our most popular and economical powertrain – the 2.2-litre diesel 150ps with 2WD and six-speed manual transmission. The premium is an extremely modest £1,200 for an upgraded specification which would cost more than £2,500 with some rival brands,” comments Peter Allibon, Sales Director, Mazda UK.
