It somehow looks like the CX-9…

That’s because Mazda intends it to be that way. The second-generation CX-5, which bows in Los Angeles this week, bears several design similarities with the latest CX-9.

Some notable design features in the all-new Mazda CX-5 include the wide front grille and slim headlights. Playing to the athletic effect are lower height and wider width.

Although the CX-5 maintains the same 2,700mm wheelbase length as in its predecessor, the overhangs have been shortened to cut overall length by 5mm.

The rear end, too, has a completely new look, with less plastic cladding on show, a more prominent Mazda badge and new lights. From the side, it’s clear that the new car has a more coupe-like profile, while a chrome strip – on the show car, at least – runs along the side of the car under the windows and finishes by running around the rearmost side window.

Mazda has also lowered the Mazda CX-5’s belt line and installed a single pane of glass for the back window.

The body itself has gained 15.5 percent more torsional rigidity thanks to the use of ultra-high-tensile steel, which Mazda claims also aids in the new SUV’s steering response, now using a column-type electric power-steering system.

The steering system itself has gained more rigid mounts that help provide more accurate steering response.

As part of the update, Mazda CX-5 also receives Mazda’s recently launched G-Vectoring control system, more on that rather complicated technology here.

Suspension is by MacPherson struts in the front and a multi-link system in the rear.

Technical changes include the use of larger-diameter front damper pistons and utilising liquid filled bushings for less floating sensation over rough roads, the company claims.

The existing three engine line-up will carry over, with the choices of SkyActiv-D 2.2 turbodiesel engine, SkyActiv-G 2.0 and SkyActiv-G 2.5 direct-injection petrol engines on offer. (No sign yet of the bigger CX-9’s 2.5-litre turbo engine…)

Inside, meanwhile, the dashboard has a cleaner look, with more chrome detailing, while obviously incorporating Mazda’s latest infotainment systems, operated through a dash-top screen and a rotary controller on the centre console. The company says a head-up display will also be available, but what hasn’t changed are the sporty three-spoke steering wheel and the three individually-ringed dials in the instrument binnacle.

There is very little technical information available about the car, but Mazda has confirmed that it will be available with three engines: 2.0- and 2.5-litre petrol engines and a 2.2-litre diesel. All are revised versions of the existing units, but we expect that – as now – only the diesel and smaller petrol engine will come to the UK.

Following the CX-5’s debut in Los Angeles, it will go on sale next year, with Japan the first country to get the car. We expect the car to arrive in the UK a few months after that, and for prices to remain around the same level as now, with the range starting at around £24,000.
