This is going to be the fourth year the model has been produced and with a list of rivals which is as long as it has ever been, the CX-5 has a long road ahead of it. But the craftsmanship and the way they are planning to updated the model displayed here for the 2017 shows that they are not giving up. In fact, they are aimed at winning as the redesign features some top of the range changes which are going to make this model a premier one.


The Mazda has always displayed an attractive offer and the 2017 Mazda CX-5 is no exception. It was actually this vehicle which has started it all and turned around the entire makeup of Mazda’s design as it was the first one to introduce the Kodo design that is now a standard of the Mazda company. Seen on such models as Mazda 6 and Mazda 3, but as well as featured models like the CX-3, the Kodo design language has revolutionized the way the contemporary Mazda vehicles look.

The model is going to be characterized with a sporty demeanor and will all in all have a flexible and aggressive looking design to it. With some swept back headlights and a distinctive side profile as well, the model is recognizable wherever it goes. It does have a raked tailgate and railing roof spoiler, but it manages to make it work for the overall design.

The 2017 version of the Mazda CX-5 will have a reshaped grille that has gray-painted horizontal slats which give a new look or the model. The headlights have also been redesigned and have received LED running lamps which you get with the Technology Package. The taillights also get some LED elements while the wheels have been updated with your standard 19-inch ones but with a new kind of a design.


The interior changes of the 2017 Mazda CX-5 have been technology based, mostly. There are also some parts which enhance the details of the design but some nice material upgrades that are featured on the interior of the car as well. The fine details and the reshaping that has been done to the center console now features a lot more room and leaves us with a decluttered design.

The interior can best be described as being calm and business like as the attractive inside is pretty suitable for any type of a situation you plan to take out your car to. The dashboard is mostly to blame for this as it really gives us a feel that we are in a premium type of a car. The center stack is actually the only down part of the car where there are some lenses controls added which cause distractions while driving.


What keeps the 2017 Mazda CX-5 as one of the best driving crossover vehicles in the segment is mostly owed to its powertrain setup. This is largely owed to the 2.0-liter inline-4 which is the sole option that the model is going to utilize this year. It brings us the performance of 155-horsepower  and 150 pound-feet of torque which is more than enough to provide us with a great showcasing from this model. But the Sport trim has a 2.5-liter version which enables it to reach 184 hp and 185 lb-ft. So if you want a bit more power and want an added oomph to your Mazda model, you can choose this one as you offer.
