The Mazda CX-5 is preparing one of its most profound updates since the introduction of its new generation, almost 5 years ago. As is customary for the brand, the facelift will not be deep, but it will attend to several aspects to keep it fresh in the compact SUV category. His first spy photos, captured by Autospy , reveal his appearance.
As you can see, the 2022 Mazda CX-5 will retain the main lines of the current model, albeit with a cleaner fascia design, similar to what we have seen on the CX-30 . The headlights, skulls, and grille also get very minor tweaks to fit in with the brand’s latest releases.
There are still no images of the interior, but everything indicates that the most important novelty will be the introduction of an infotainment system with an 8 “screen , with the new interface that we already find in Mazda3 and Mazda CX-30.
As for engines, it is unlikely to find any news. Everything indicates that it will keep the 2.5-liter engines , which generate 188 hp and 186 lb-ft in the atmospheric version, and 228 hp and 310 lb-ft in the turbo variant. In both cases, a front-wheel-drive, six-speed automatic transmission is used — with an all-wheel drive option for other markets.
The facelift of the Mazda CX-May 2022 will be presented in the coming months in Japan, and could reach our streets before the end of the year.
A micro-hybrid variant of the Mazda2 will also be launched in the remainder of 2021.
