â€œOur main goal with the all-new Mazda5,â€ says Hideki Matsuoka, Mazda5 Programme Manager, â€œwas to develop a new C-MAV that combines the superior environmental performance these times demand with a new expression in stylish design.â€
The all-new model further evolves Mazda5â€™s functionality â€“ with double-sliding rear doors and 7-seat Karakuri flexibility.
This design, which also uses elements of Mazdaâ€™s Nagare Flow design language, is highly functional and contributes to fuel efficiency by having a particularly low drag coefficient, and optimal lift and air-swirl characteristics.
This new direct-injection gasoline unit offers linear and smooth performance characteristics and is fun to drive.
It achieves approximately 15 percent reduction in CO2 emissions compared to the 2.0-litre unit it replaces.
The gasoline line-up features a 1.8-litre engine with a six-speed manual transmission as well.
The all-new Mazda5 will go on sale in Europe this fall.
