Mazda will be showing a production version of its new CX-5 compact crossover SUV at the Frankfurt Motor Show on September 13.
The CX-5 is the first of a new generation of Mazda products that will adopt the full range of Mazda's Skyactiv engine and body technology and the new design theme, ‘Kodo - soul of motion'.
The CX-5 will go on sale at the start of 2012 and will feature new Skyactiv petrol and diesel engines, new manual and automatic transmissions, as well as new body and chassis.
The engine line-up for the European specification CX-5 will include Mazda's Skyactiv-G 2.0 gasoline engine and Skyactiv-D 2.2 diesel engine, which will be available in standard power and high power versions.
Mazda is aiming for the diesel engine to be sub 120g/km CO2.
Joining the CX-5 on Mazda's stand at the Frankfurt show will be the upgraded Mazda3. The revised model will have lower CO2 emissions, more sporty and stable driving dynamics, with an updated higher quality interior and exterior design.
