Mazda CX-5 Just Made an Appearance at the LA Car Show
The Japanese car manufacturer is known for creating some of the most popular cars the world has ever seen but now that 2017 is coming, Mazda is set on taking the market by storm once again. It’s a known fact by now that Mazda has been trying to enter the premium market and to fulfill that goal, the car manufacturer created Mazda CX-5. This car model just came out of the workshop and it was showcased at the LA Auto Show.
It’s safe to say that everyone was impressed with the new model’s looks but what wasn’t specified during the auto show was if this Mazda CX-5 model was the 2017 or 2018 version. The reason behind this confusion is because recent reports have been pointing out that Mazda is actually going to launch this model during 2018 and not 2017. Nonetheless, during the auto show Mazda accomplished its goal which was to showcase the car’s innovative features.
The standard bar has been set quite high for Mazda’s upcoming premium model. Especially since the Japanese car manufacturer will be going against a tough crowd filled with fierce competition. The names which stand out the most among all of Mazda’s competition are Audi, BMW and Porsche. It’s great seeing that Mazda is pursuing its goal of creating a high-end premium car and this is a very difficult job to do when the market is already filled with bestselling cars produced by household names.
In regards to the branding confusion, what happened was that everyone thought of the Honda CR-V case. Honda announced that its upcoming 5th gen Honda CR-V will be branded as a 2018 model but in the end it was switched to be a 2017 model. This was the reason everyone is wondering if the same thing will happen with Mazda CX-5.
What makes Mazda’s upcoming car stand out from the rest is the fact that it features a refreshing look with curved edges and that it comes in three engine variants, two gas ones and a diesel one. Drivers will now be able to get the most of the engine’s power because the car ships with G-Vectoring control which helps the driver reduce torque control over the front axle.
