Mazda Says 2017 CX-5 Orders Can Now Be Placed In Japan
Last month, the 2017 Mazda CX-5 made its debut at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show where it got a lot of attention. The 2017 CX-5 is set to be delivered in showrooms early next year but Mazda says orders can now be placed in Japan.
The 2017 Mazda CX-5 Launches
According to a report from Car Scoops, the 2017 Mazda CX-5 will officially be launched on Feb.2, 2017. In addition, Mazda is hoping to sell 2,500 units on a monthly basis in its local auto market. In the all-wheel drive (AWD) configuration, the lowest price is at $23,340 and this is powered by a 2.5-liter SkyActiv-G petrol engine. The higher XD trim starts at $24,090 and $26,055 in the FWD and AWD drivetrains respectively, and it is powered by a 2.2-liter SkyActiv-D diesel engine as reported.
The New Design
Prior to its debut at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, Mazda released a teaser image that suggested new designs for the 2017 CX-5. When the automaker lifted the veil of the 2017 CX-5 the assumptions came into fruition. "Our goal in redesigning the CX-5 was to break through the traditional trade-off between driving pleasure and passenger comfort. And to achieve it we have further honed every aspect of the model. Mazda will continue advancing its lineup to offer all customers the joy of driving, aiming to create an emotional connection with customers and become their one-and-only brand," said Masamichi Kogai, representative director, president and CEO of Mazda in a report.
A Long Line Is Coming
The 2017 Mazda CX-5 is considered as the automaker's flagship and given how much hype it was able to generate to date, it is safe to assume that a lot of people are waiting to get their hands on the new model. And with the Japanese automaker now taking orders of the 2017 Mazda CX-5 in Japan, a long line of eager customers is to be expected.
