LA Auto Show: Mazda Gives a Sneak Peek of Its New CX-5 Crossover

Oct 27, 2016

Mazda Motor Corp. released an obscured teaser photo of its all-new 2017 CX-5 compact crossover ahead of its world debut at the LA Auto Show next month.

The Japanese automaker didn't provide many details beyond the debut date—November 16—and some sweeping comments that the company has further refined the design and technology of the vehicle. However, the teaser photo suggests designers were inspired by the CX-9, a beefier crossover that went on sale in 2016.

The CX-5 is the company's top-selling vehicle with the Mazda3 in second place and every other model trailing far behind. Mazda reported it sold 82,439 CX-5 vehicles from January through September, a 0.5% gain from the same 9-month period last year.

It's an important vehicle for a company that has seen overall sales fall 7.2% through September with 224,267 vehicles sold. It's likely why Mazda has given the CX-5 so much attention and small refreshes to the exterior and interior since its first model year in 2013.

The new CX-5 will launch as a 2017 model in the United States. The model year designation will vary in other regions, Mazda said in a release.
