mazda cx-5 skyactiv technology

Dynamic driving with uncompromising performance

Incorporating our full range of pioneering SKYACTIV Technology this mid-size SUV provides a truly pleasurable driving experience. Our advanced engine, transmission, chassis and body shell technologies work together for a driving performance that’s refined and fuel-efficient.

The chassis gives the steering and handling an agility and responsiveness that’s rare in SUVs. The engine and transmission deliver a dynamic drive with outstanding efficiency, while the Active Torque All-Wheel Drive transfers power to the wheels with most traction. And a body shell that’s light yet strong contributes to first-class safety and excellent aerodynamics.


Mazda CX-5 also benefits from significant innovations in suspension, together with advanced sound insulation, resulting in significantly reduced cabin noise. So from city to motorway, you're assured of a comfortable and enjoyable drive - over any distance.

SKYACTIV-BODY This light and strong body shell enables a more dynamic driving experience

This light and strong SKYACTIV-BODY offers excellent environmental and safety performance.

One of the core parts of our strategy for making lighter cars is reducing the weight of the body shell. Lighter cars are better for the environment and can give a more fun and agile driving performance. With this SKYACTIV-BODY Mazda CX-5 achieves one of the lowest kerb weights in its segment – a key factor in its unusually responsive driving experience. And importantly there’s no compromise in safety because this SKYACTIV-BODY is engineered using new technology and materials including ultra-high tensile steel.

Front and rear suspension Enhanced for a more comfortable drive

Revised front and rear damper structures and lower arm bushing.

Now you can enjoy smoother ride comfort wherever you go. We’ve improved Mazda CX-5’s front and rear suspension to achieve a flat posture control and minimise jolts on uneven road surfaces.

You’ll also notice a difference in the handling, where we’ve enhanced both cornering and high speed straight line stability.

SKYACTIV petrol engine and diesel engine with SKYACTIV transmission they produce an advanced driving performance

The SKYACTIV-D diesel engine with two-stage turbocharger eliminates the response lag that’s typical of turbo engines. And our SKYACTIV-G petrol engine with direct injection delivers the world’s highest compression ratio of 14:1 (a key performance measure for combustion engines).


Alongside our SKYACTIV-DRIVE automatic and SKYACTIV-MT manual transmissions, our SKYACTIV engines provide a powerful and efficient driving experience. The manual transmission is available with petrol and diesel engines whilst the automatic is available in combination with the diesel engine, the former providing a refined, smooth shift and the latter a sports-shift feel.
