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.
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.
