Mazda CX5 shows strongly in award season

The Mazda CX5 has picked up another award, kicking off 2013 in style by being voted as a “Best Buy” SUV in the What Car? Awards.

The Mazda CX5 crossover scooped the award alongside its low carbon accolade at the annual industry event and was described as “an unbeatable buy at much less than £25,000.”

The 150hp 2.2-litre diesel Mazda CX5 model comes in at £22,995 and according to the monthly publication “is one of the finest diesels you can buy. It has walloping low down torque, yet is supremely flexible and happy to rev.” Quite a combination indeed.

What Car? continues:

“There’s bags of room for four tall adults, the boot is huge and the rear seats fold down easily.

“With low running costs, headline-grabbing figures, including remarkable CO2 emissions of just 119g/km and you end up with an unbeatable buy.”

The first vehicle to debut the Japanese firm’s Skyactiv technology, it proves how successful Mazda’s approach to building modern powerful but efficient and safe cars has been.

Mazda UK Sales Director, Peter Allibon:

“When we introduced the Mazda CX-5 last year, we predicted that it would transform the SUV marketplace in Britain Public reaction to the CX-5 has been immensely positive and numerous media tests have shown it consistently beats all class rivals.

“We anticipate continued strong demand for our compact SUV throughout 2013 and beyond.”

The Mazda CX5 boasts an 18-strong vehicle line-up, offering a great range of choice.

Prices start at £21,395 while customers can choose from three engines – including a superb 165hp 2.0-litre petrol and two 2.2-litre turbodiesel units producing 150 or 175hp.

With manual or automatic transmission, and two- or four-wheel drive, it’s possible to configure a car for your needs.

But don’t just take our word for it – winning the 2012 What Car? Green SUV Award, the 2012 Scottish Car of the Year Safety Award and most recently, the Ultra-low-carbon and Best Buy SUV What Car? Awards.
