Arriving in showrooms in early 2023, all grades of Mazda CX-5 will adopt the new generation 10.25-inch Mazda Connect infotainment system, which offers intuitive operation, faster processing and enhanced image and sound quality. For Maxx Sport and above, the system includes Mazda’s seventh-generation navigation system too.
The centre console will house two new USB-C ports to support a wider variety of devices for better functionality.
Wireless capability for phone mirroring technologies, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, will be added to Maxx Sport models and above, making it even easier to stay connected on the road.
The Mazda CX-5 will also be the first Mazda to incorporate a remote window function into the key fob, a handy feature that many Australians will appreciate come summer that lowers all windows in unison via the unlock button.
The newly developed Rhodium White metallic paint, which debuted on Mazda’s First-Ever CX-60, will be added to the nine-strong body colour line-up.
Finally, the service intervals for 2.0-litre, 2.5-litre and 2.5-litre turbo petrol variants of the Mazda CX-5 will increase to 12 months or 15,000km, whichever comes first.
Mazda Australia Managing Director, Vinesh Bhindi, said the update follows Mazda’s strategy to match and evolve with the changing needs of customers.
“Mazda’s continued focus on improving and evolving product throughout its lifecycle has helped Mazda CX-5 remain a firm favourite SUV in Australia, resonating with customers for its timeless style, functionality and versatility.
“The emphasis of this update is to boost customer connectivity with the car, and follows a significant redesign earlier in 2022, which refreshed and sharpened the looks of the Mazda CX-5.”
