Sherwood Park, Alberta April 24, 2017 The 2017 Mazda CX-5 compact crossover made huge waves during its initial announcement, and now, Albertans can finally get their hands on one. All they have to do is head to Park Mazda in Sherwood Park near Edmonton to take a test drive and experience the future of fuel-efficient driving technology.
According to Mitch Lewicki, the Park Mazda General Manager, the new model represents a big leap forward for Albertan motorists. "Were extremely excited to have the latest Mazda CX-5 arrive at our dealership. We think that our fans will be just as enthusiastic to get behind the wheel for themselves," said Lewicki.
Although the 2017 version isnt the first of its kind, it bears the benefits of real-world experience. As a second-generation vehicle, it capitalizes on high safety ratings and in-depth crash testing. It also has the advantage of offering one of the best highway fuel economies of any non-hybrid SUV on the market.
The CX-5 family has also undergone numerous refinements that established the vehicle line as a standard of the modern era. For instance, its available with a range of different SKYACTIV gas engines and i-Active Sense Safety features such as Smart City Brake Support, Radar Cruise Control, Adaptive Front Headlights, Rear Cross Traffic Alert Lane Departure Warning and more. An array of available perks, like remote-controlled powered tailgates, heated front seats and Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring, mean that its easy for owners to customize their driving experience and create the perfect combination of comfort, control and functionality.
"Since its launch in 2013," says Lewicki, "the CX-5 has carved out a well-deserved niche of its own and become one of our top-selling vehicles. Were confident that the improvements in safety and noise reduction will only help this crossover's sales grow even more. Drivers are sure to love the fact that the cabin is far quieter even at highway speeds thanks to a range of smart engineering tweaks, like the addition of cargo area carpeting, thicker windshields, acoustic front window glass and dual door seals."
Auto industry observers are quick to point out that Mazda isnt just recycling old concepts. "Unlike many comparable vehicles," Lewicki noted, "the CX-5 features exterior improvements to complement its interior evolution. Sleek new refinements and trim packages are certain to help this amazing crossover gain market share."
