2018 Mazda CX-5: Redesign Details

The changes on the exterior styling are still hidden, but we can see something new. The front end is using just the same cues as the new Mazda CX-9. Still, since the 2018 CX-5 features compact characteristics, the bodywork looks more impressive. The carmaker restyled a grille, so you won’t find any horizontal bar, while the bumper looks larger. On the other hand, the new headlights are slimmer and really aggressive. The prototype appears to have a slopping roof now, and the rear hatch looks more streamlined. We haven’t seen the new interior yet, but the latest reports indicate that the carmaker is going to slip a completely new infotainment system – eight-inch MAZDA CONNECT infotainment system, as well as new entertainment. Also, the crossover will have far better safety features, which will be exactly identical to the CX-9’s. Of course, the high-end model will get a premium look, with amazing Nappa leather upholstery and 4.6-inch TFT display. The dashboard will be largely redesigned and more upscale, and will have aluminum parts.

Like we said before, the crossover will use its current engines. However, a new turbocharged 2.5-liter engine will definitely power the range-topping 2018 Mazda CX-5. The unit will produce around 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, which is more than enough for amazing performance.
