It’s not easy being Mazda as we head into 2017. As the automotive world begins what may be an inexorable shift from driving to riding in on-demand, autonomous, electric vehicles, the Mazda ethos that “driving matters” is increasingly coming under pressure. In the same week that the Chevrolet Bolt EV was named Motor Trend car of the year and Jaguar introduced its first battery-powered vehicle, Mazda is launching a diesel-powered second-generation CX-5 crossover.
The night before the main media preview days of the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show kicked off, Mazda revealed the new CX-5 in a Hollywood sound-stage in a presentation that focused almost entirely on design. Mazda North America president Masahiro Moro kicked off the show with a declaration that “Mazda’s are not commodities and never will be.”
For decades, Mazda vehicles have stood apart from most other Japanese brands with a sense of style and driving dynamics that were typically a cut above the class. In the 8 years since Ford sold its stake in Mazda, the Japanese brand has redoubled its efforts to produce both more compelling designs while also focusing on engineering fundamentals like reducing weight and creating more efficient powertrains.
The effort has been largely successful to date and the new CX-5 takes elements seen earlier this year on the larger CX-9 and ramps it up with a more dynamic look in keeping with the smaller vehicle. Mazda’s head of global design Ikuo Maeda focused on the company’s hand-crafted approach to design, emphasizing “Japanese aesthetics” and “purity of form.”
