The New 2018 Mazda CX-5 near Waterbury, CT

There Are Many Exciting Improvements in the New 2018 Mazda CX-5

The newly redesigned 2018 Mazda CX-5 is a crossover SUV that every driver and passenger will enjoy. New to the 2018 Mazda CX-5 is retuned driving dynamics, and a number of new interior changes that bring the overall comfort, convenience and driving performance of the new Mazda CX-5 into a whole new realm of universal appeal.

2018 Mazda CX-5 Performance

One of the largest updates made in the 2018 Mazda CX-5 is the addition of Mazda's new CYLINDER DEACTIVATION, offered standard in all new Mazda CX-5 models. This technology shuts down two of the CX-5's four-cylinders during cruising to improve fuel efficiency. The major challenge with four-cylinder deactivation is that engines running on two cylinders are more likely to cause vibration. Mazda's breakthrough solution to compensate for this is to use a fulcrum inside the six-speed SKYACTIV-DRIVE automatic transmission. This addition helps ensure seamless transition between two- and four-cylinder operation. Every 2018 Mazda CX-5 model is also available with I-ACTIV All-Wheel Drive, allowing drivers here in Connecticut to take on any driving condition or terrain with the utmost confidence at all times.

2018 Mazda CX-5 Interior and Technology Features

The 2018 Mazda CX-5 offers a number of new standard and available features for both drivers and passengers to take advantage of. Every model receives a new seven-inch MAZDA CONNECT infotainment system that offers Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio capability, voice command, the multifunction commander control, blind spot monitoring with cross traffic alert and much more. The Mazda CX-5 also offers an available Active Driving Display that provides you with crucial information while on the road and projects it onto your windshield in front of you, so your eyes never have to leave the road. And with intuitive safety features like Traffic Sign Recognition, Radar Cruise Control, Smart City Brake Support, and much more, you'll always be aware of your surroundings wherever you go.
