2017 Mazda CX-5 New Powertrain and Comfort Features

The wait for the all-new 2017 Mazda CX-5 has been a long one, and it looks like it’s going to be a little longer still. But after getting a glimpse at the completely redesigned interior and exterior, the powertrain options and all of the other advanced new safety and technology features found within the new 2017 CX-5, it appears our patience is going to pay off in a big way. That’s because the all-new CX-5 is going to be as fun to drive as it is comfortable to ride in, as powerful as it is safe, and as impressive of a sight inside as it is outside.  To wet our whistle as we wait for the 2017 Mazda CX-5 to arrive on our Seacoast Mazda lot, let’s take a closer look at its new features and check in on its release date.

2017 Mazda CX-5 Exterior and Interior Redesign Features

The 2017 Mazda CX-5 has been redesigned from the inside out for a bold and tough yet sleek and sporty exterior and a comfortable and spacious interior. In terms of new exterior features, the 2017 CX-5 has a lower center of gravity and a wider front and rear tread when compared to previous models to give the new CX-5 a more powerful stance and improved handling. The new CX-5 also has thinner, lower-placed headlamps for improved visibility. The interior has been completely redone, with Mazda aiming for what they’re calling a human-centered ambience. That goal is being accomplished by improving seat quality and comfort, repositioning features like the floor console and shift knob for improved access, increasing the passenger space and cargo capacity and much, much more.
