Grand Motors has introduced the all-new Mazda CX-5 – a compact crossover SUV – into the Bruneian market this week.

The car, which has proven to be the core model for the Japanese auto-house, has been upgraded inside and out for better performance, handling and refinement.

The latest CX-5 generation comes mounted with a 2.0 or 2.5 inline-four double overhead cam powertrain engine, with Mazda’s exlusive SkyActiv-G technology integrated to improve its power output and fuel efficiency.

Mazda’s G-Vectoring Plus System were also injected into the new model to improve stability in cornering, handling at high speeds and enhanced safety for emergency maneuvers via a combination of torque vectoring and brake control.

The new model also featured quite a number of safety functions including adaptive LED headlights to reduce glaring from oncoming cars, a lane-keep assistance and departure warning system, blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert to warn drivers of obstacles when reversing the car.

What is more, the upgraded CX-5 comes with an advanced Smart City Brake support which allows the vehicle to mitigate collisions with other cars, objects and pedestrians – whenever inevitable.

Perhaps one of the most striking features is the Heads-Up Display unit which shows information such as speed, lane indicators and blind-spot warnings on the windscreen itself – a feature that aimed at reducing driving distractions and place important information within the driver’s line of sight.

Another highlight of the new model is a 360-degree monitor, integrating camera views and parking sensors on a central display for increased awareness and safety when moving in tight spaces.

Additionally, the interior had also been detailed for comfort, with variants available in Nappa leather trim with 10-speaker Bose surround sound system.

Those holding interests into the car can make a test-drive appointment with Grand Motors via mazda.com.bn or call its office at 2613888.
