Mazda has unveiled the first details on the new CX-5 compact crossover, that will be built around the Skyactiv Technology and the Kodo design language.

Mazda CX-At the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show Mazda will present the all-new CX5 compact crossover, the first of a new generation of models that will adopt the Skyactive Technology and the ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’ design language.

The CX-5 is the first production model to showcase Mazda’s new design theme, which was first introduced with the recent Shinari and Minagi concept cars.

Among the distinctive elements of the KODO design are the prominent new front view with a bolder family face and a “dynamic styling that conveys a strong sense of vitality and agility.”

The CX-5 will be offered with a choice between the SKYACTIV-G 2.0 gasoline engine and SKYACTIV-D 2.2 diesel engine, both with a 14:1 compression ratio for optimal efficiency.
