Mazda updates CX-5 and adds new flagship trim level

The Mazda CX-5 is set to be updated for 2019, in time for the new ‘19’ UK number plates.

Available to order now, this revised version of the second-generation CX-5 – which debuted in 2017 – sees the introduction of a new GT Sport Nav+ model grade.

This new trim features amenities that were previously exclusive to the top-end of the Mazda6 line-up. This includes 19-inch alloy wheels on the exterior, alongside an interior that features real wood and satin chrome on the dashboard and door trim inlays, Nappa leather upholstery, white LED illumination and a frameless rear view mirror.

A seven-inch colour TFT dial display and an exclusive steering wheel design with a chrome centre bezel and high-grade stitching also set the GT Sport Nav+ apart from the rest of the range.

Front seat ventilation, heated outer rear seats and a sunroof all feature, as does a new safety pack. This sees the CX-5 kitted out with adaptive LED headlights, driver attention Alert, rear smart city brake support and a 360° monitoring camera.

Of course, satellite navigation also comes as standard on the GT Sport Nav+, which is available with a choice of front-wheel drive 163bhp petrol and 181bhp all-wheel drive diesel drivetrains.
