At this year’s Geneva Motor Show in March Mazda will premiere the all-new Mazda5, which is especially good at meeting the needs of European families with active lifestyles.
“Our main goal with the all-new Mazda5,” says Hideki Matsuoka, Mazda5 Programme Manager, “was to develop a new C-MAV that combines the superior environmental performance these times demand with a new expression in stylish design.”
New Mazda5 features double-sliding rear doors and 7-seat Karakuri flexibility. Under the hood is newly-developed 2.0-litre DISI1 petrol engine equipped with i-stop, and a six-speed manual transmission with gear ratios specific to this version. This new direct-injection petrol offers linear and smooth performance characteristics and is fun to drive. It is also one of the most frugal and clean C-MAVs on the market, achieving approximately 15 percent reduction in CO2 emissions compared to the 2.0-litre petrol it replaces. The gasoline line-up features a 1.8-litre engine with a six-speed manual transmission as well.
Sales in Europe will start this fall.
