SKYACTIV Technology introduced in the new CX 5 cross over from Mazda
|   Thursday, July 12, 2012
Compact crossovers are a craze in the market now as people want to save on their budget to fit their entire family in a car and still save on fuel consumption. Hence, SUVs are not always preferred as these vehicles are gas guzzling monsters and are not anything close to being economical. So, in comes the new design, the cross over.

Mazda has launched quite a few crossovers in the past, the CS 5 being the latest in the market, and this vehicle has created a storm since the time it was unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Expo.
Built on an economic SKYACTIV technology, the CX 5 saves up a lot.

The car is designed using the KODO motion design program and the customers have the option of choosing from the 165 PS petrol engine and the 150 PS diesel engine variants. The car also provides the option of a two wheel or four wheel drive technology.

Safety measures include an advanced city braking assist technology, which uses a lot of designing and programming languages to assist the driver in emergency braking situations. Mazda is expecting around 4000 vehicles to go for sale in the UK within the first quarter of 2013 and the CX 5 is the sixth generation car from Mazda.

The introduction of the sixth generation CX 5 is expected to stir up the car market in the United Kingdom and set new standards for the future SUVs. From technology to designing to performance, the CX 5 is a pioneer.
The CX 5 is built on a strong aluminum chassis and uses performance increasing materials for the body work. From interior to exterior, the CX 5 is a technological marvel and the Japanese have created a vehicle far out of anyone else's league.

The direct fuel injection system, new improved suspension and an improved transmission helps the car in gaining better performance. The ride height has also been changed and this helps the driver in a variety of ways.

The power to weight ration of the car is also changed and the latest CX 5 is better than the previous models in all aspects. Emission levels of this engine are also fairly low with an average of 119 g/km.

Mazda offers two dynamic and energy saving technology in the CX 5, the SKYACTIV-MT the manual gearshift version and the SKYACTIV-Drive, the automated version. Both are equally good and the choice depends upon a person's personal driving pleasure.

The all wheel drive technology enabled model has the option of SKYACTIV-D and this features the diesel engine. The audio output of the vehicle is amazing, with a built in Bose, high quality audio device.

Listening to music has never been better on four wheels and the audio device has nine speakers with an integrated bass boosters. The satellite speakers are also great and this is probably the best thin Mazda has ever done in a vehicle.

The sales factor is a mystery and remains to be seen. However, the market factors and audience response favors the sales of the CX 5.
