2013 Mazda CX-5 Makes “10 Best Interiors” List

April 30th, 2012

The all-new 2013 Mazda CX-5 was recently announced as one of WardsAuto‘s 10 Best Interiors. A newcomer to the compact crossover SUV segment, CX-5 boasts the best highway fuel economy – even against hybrids – of any SUV sold in North America at 35 miles per gallon (mpg). It showcases SKYACTIV Technology and Mazda’s innovative engineering philosophy on fuel-saving technologies.

“To separate itself from the competition, the 2013 CX-5 had to offer not just the same features and options as other compact crossover SUVs, but be better, stronger, and smarter than those other offerings,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, Mazda North American Operations (MNAO). “For CX-5 to be honored with such a distinct award is a testament to Mazda’s passionate attention to every detail – from dynamics and engineering to safety and design.”

Mazda’s TAKERI Concept made its North American debut at the 2012 New York International Auto Show, and is the brand’s first concept vehicle to feature the SKYACTIV-D clean diesel engine as well as other revolutionary Mazda-developed, fuel-saving technologies such as i-stop, a stop-start system, and i-ELOOP, a regenerative braking system.

TAKERI is the third concept vehicle borne of the KODO (“Soul of Motion”) design language and the second to feature the full suite of SKYACTIV components. First introduced on the SHINARI Concept, KODO has produced elegantly powerful concept vehicle designs that have developed into equally handsome production cars, such as last year’s MINAGI Concept, a compact crossover SUV that became the basis of the all-new, award-winning 2013 CX-5.
