2021 Mazda CX-5: Key highlights

We first heard about the 2021 Mazda CX-5 in August 2020, and now the model has entered the European market. It packs in several first-in company lineup features that surely put it on higher grounds compared to the ongoing model. Now, there are a few big questions  doing rounds - first, what all does the 2021 CX-5 have on offer and when will the new model make its local debut.

As for the former question, this article is all about the new CX-5, its details, and specifications which we are about to reach. As for its car's arrival in the local market, we don't have an official word from Mazda Malaysia yet, so keeping our hopes high is the only thing that feels right at the moment.

2021 Mazda CX-5 highlights

Currently, only the European market is on the benefiting end, also it is one of the most important markets for the model. In the words of Jeremy Thomas, “Since the launch of the first-generation CX-5 in 2012, this SUV has been a crucial car in the UK market. It has always been a hugely popular car that’s loved for its style, practicality, and dynamic appeal, the second-generation car only enhanced that further and thanks to successive updates and refinements, it has remained right at the top of the class.”

He further added that “To date, 490,849 units have been sold in Europe and more than 3.1 million globally, making it Mazda’s best-selling model. Here in the UK, the CX-5 accounts for 26% of our new car sales and it’s a car that performs consistently strongly in the used market as well.” Thus justifying the model's first choice of arrival destination. Let's now start with discussing new CX-5 details: variants, design, features, safety, and more.
