    Default 2017 CX-5

    The 2017 CX-5 is being released later today at the LA Autoshow. I caught the live unveiling on Facebook last night. It looks pretty sweet.

    Here's a good thread that has some interior photos.
    http://www.autoblog.com/2016/11/15/2...#slide-4273704

    Somehow they have re-imagined the Soul Red paint. I'm not sure how they can make it better, but I thought the same about the 2016 Mazda3. I doubt they will bring a different power train as the purpose of this SUV is to unite efficiency with everyday performance.

    They say it has a slightly lower roofline but the overall size is the same with more cargo capacity. They've used more high-tensile steel in the frame meaning it will likely weigh less and witch G-Vectoring control, perform just a little bit better than the current generation. Also offers a 10% reduction in highway road noise and reclining rear seats.

    To me, the interior looks a little more cozy.

    I am excited to see these in the spring and do some awesome videos. There are no specs available yet.

    If it's the same crappy engines, I still won't buy one. I'm in the market, it's really time to replace my speed 3 and I don't want a lethargic SUV.

    Mazda said they have a diesel option coming. But I'll believe it when I'm driving it.

    Apparently the Diesel is coming to Canada.

    http://www.motortrend.com/cars/mazda...t-look-review/

    "Mazda also lists the 2.2-liter Skyactiv-D diesel engine for North America, though it will likely only be offered in Canada for now."

    The diesel is slower to 60 than the 2.5l from what I can see. Yes it'll have a nice big fat glob of torque but it's still not really any quicker. This vehicle NEEDS the 2.5l turbo.

    go for the cx9! if you want to stay mazda. or find an suv with a v6. personally i didnt want a 4cyl turbo in our suv and i am very very pleased with the 3.6L grand cherokee. it was a toss up between that the ford edge and the santa fe XL

    but this is a very nice looking car. i dont think i personally would mind the 2.5L i dont need it to be "fast" for me.

    lol they were saying that 3 years ago when i worked for mazda.. but so is the next rx7 or rx9 or speed 3.. sadly they are missing on bringing cars to market that people want. bring the speed 3, 6 and miatas back. a speed version would be cool in the suvs. like how ford as the sports like there performance suv version or jeep with the srt. something cool. bring a diesel and an electric out.

    CX-9 is just far too big for my needs, I love everything about the CX-5 except that it's effing slow, you only get it's smidge of power if you wind it out to redline. I also own a 3.5l v6 Rav4 with 269hp, it's quick enough (0-60 in about 6.2-6.3 according to zero to sixty times) and has some grunt in the 2-4k rpm range but my fiance is driving it now and they don't make new Rav4's with a v6 either. I'll end up buying a luxury compact SUV so I can get an engine I want, won't be domestic (build quality is still IMO crap). The speed 3 has grown tiresome in traffic with a heavy clutch, noisy, cramped, and not nearly as nice/easy to drive in the winter as the Rav4, and it's 6 years old so reliability/maintenance is going to start being a bigger pain...it's time for a change.

    Mazda just officially announce the diesel option for 2017.

    It is official now.

    http://en.media.mazda.ca/2016-11-16-...d-Half-of-2017

    HIROSHIMA, Japan, Nov. 16, 2016 /CNW/ - Mazda Motor Corporation announced at the Los Angeles Auto Show* today it will offer the SKYACTIV-D 2.2 clean diesel engine in the all-new Mazda CX-5 for North America from the second half of 2017. It will be Mazda's first diesel engine model in the North American market.

    The SKYACTIV-D 2.2 to be fitted in the all-new CX-5 for North America provides a torque-rich driving experience and revs freely to high RPMs. It will meet the region's strict emission standards and make the all-new CX-5 one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in its class. The engine also adopts Natural Sound Smoother and Natural Sound Frequency Control, proprietary technologies that reduce diesel knock sound for a quieter and more pleasing sound.

    "We're confident this engine offers a smart new option for North American drivers who want both performance and fuel economy," said Akira Marumoto, Mazda's Executive Vice President and Representative Director.

    By providing driving pleasure and outstanding environmental performance to all customers, Mazda aims to enrich people's lives and become a brand with which customers feel an emotional connection.

    It is a nice looking car, looks better than the current CX5 IMO, but I'm still on the edge. I drove the 2016 or 2015 CX5 and with 4 adults in the car, it was slow and weak. Mine was a GS model, but I still believe it still had the same engine as the GTs. I dont think that this new one will be much different in terms of power. Also drove the Santa Fe Sport AWD and Santa Fe XL AWD, those were much better in power, but interior wise, the cx5 would beat it.

    If I wanted to stick with mazda and needed an SUV, I would just choose the CX9, and forget about the CX5.

    OK Guys & Gals!

    I am so excited for the 2017 CX-5. We just got a glimpse and WOW!

    As a fan of a manual I think I may lease myself a base model. It will have the same things the convenience package used to (alloys, tint, bluetooth...etc) along with GVC, Rearview camera, LED headlights, 40/20/40 seating and reclining rear seats.

    The GS model offers the power tailgate, heated steering wheel, leather wrapped, leatherette/suede combo seats and a rear center armrest with a usb port (a small detail but such a smart idea)
    The sunroof will be an option with auto climate, rear vents and advanced key. There is an available tech package that offers similar tech to the current top trim CX-5.

    GT gets real leather as usual, some other goodies like it currently has plus heated rear seats.
    Tech package on this unit has the same as GS tech but adds TSR, ADD and Sirius.

    Production is in January. I am looking forward to seeing them in person in March/April.
