Mazda CX-5 Design SketchThe Mazda CX-5 is the first production model to adopt the company’s new KODO design language.

First previewed by the Minagi Concept, the compact crossover is equipped with a wide range of new technologies grouped under the name SKYACTIV.

These include a lightweight body and chassis, new gasoline and diesel engines, and manual and automatic transmissions.

The exterior design aims at conveying SUV-like sturdiness while at the same time expressing a sense of vitality and agility.

At the rear the fenders contrast with the edgy form and sharply raked back window. The slanting A-pillar bases contribute to the well-planted stance, and offer the driver a better field of view.

    the end product is poor for what the renders depict. the car reminds me of the KIA sportage, especially from the rear. the Mazda Takeri is spot on however.
