Mazda CX5 stars in The Lorax: film debut for new Mazda crossover

Crossovers are meant to be fun. And that’s exactly what the Mazda CX5 is showing itself to be, taking a staring role in Dr Seuss’ “The Lorax” film.

The computer animated film from Universal will see a cartoon version of the Mazda CX5 crossover rolling through a field of lollipop-like trees.

The original book the film is based on was an environmentalist tail so the Mazda CX5 is positioned perfectly in the role. The compact SUV’s super-efficient, low emissions 2.2-litre turbodiesel and 2.0-litre petrol engines reinforce Mazda’s eco-focused attitude as part of its Skyactiv technology range.

The 150bhp diesel unit in the CX5 returns 61.4mpg combined with 119g/km CO2 emissions, meaning zero road tax for the first year and just £30 every year after and that in the real world, the CX5 should be forest friendly.

Check out the Mazda CX5 at T W White & Sons showrooms in Bookham, Surrey andOrpington, Kent.
