New Mazda CX-5 revealed with updated styling and tech for 2022

The updated Mazda CX-5 includes three new trim levels and additional safety features.

The CX-5 is proving to be a successful staple of the Mazda brand, accounting for 21 per cent of European sales. For 2022, the CX-5 has received upgraded tech, styling and new equipment to improve its appeal compared to mid-size SUV rivals. The prices for the new Mazda CX-5 are due to be released this autumn along with full details on the range and specifications. 

Mazda has given the CX-5 a more prominent grille and restyled light units that contribute to a more dynamic look generally for the facelifted car. The suspension and seats have been upgraded with an eye on improving comfort levels and Mazda claims “greatly reduced” road noise, even on rough surfaces, compared to the pre-facelift model.

Mazda has introduced Mi-Drive which gives the driver a range of driving modes so they can select one that best suits their journey and mood. Some specifications also come with i-Activ all wheel drive (AWD) which adds an off-road mode to the Mi-Drive system. 

The 2022 Mazda CX-5 model comes with the choice of three new specifications: Newground, Sport Black and GT Sport. Entry-level Newground features green accents on the grille, interior air vents and seat stitching, along with a suede interior and a choice of 17” or 19” black alloys.

Sport Black has gloss black accents on the exterior, including the wheel arches, door mirrors and front grille. Inside there are red details throughout, with red stitching on the seats, steering wheel, gear lever and door panels. GT Sport is the top spec and boasts 19” silver alloys, a wood interior and Nappa leather. 

There are added practical touches, too. The centre console now has a tray for wireless phone charging and the reversible boot floor remains at the same level as the tailgate for easy loading but the Newground spec has gained a water-resistant side to the floorboard so the boot floor won’t get dirty if you’ve got a muddy dog in the back. 

Mazda’s i-Activesense system now includes new safety features such as Cruising and Traffic Support (CTS) and adaptive LED Headlights. CTS assists the driver with steering, acceleration and braking when in traffic jams.
