Mazda CX-5 gets new trim levels
When car makers come up with trim specifications for their models, they do so in a way that gives easy stepping stones in equipment levels, from hair shirt to over the top. They also expect that many buyers will pay a visit to the options list to add in a few extra goodies to the standard spec, but it looks like Mazda has been getting the same request repeatedly from buyers of the CX-5 compact SUV – give us a sunroof and leather.
Until now, the only way to get sunroof and leather was to opt for the range-topping Sport trim – which costs from £27.5k – but now Mazda has added two trim levels beneath the Sport - SE-L Lux and SE-L Lux Nav – which come already equipped with the two most requested extras.
Both new models are based on the 2.2-litre diesel 150ps 2WD SE-L trim with manual transmission, but the SE-L Lux adds in a power tilt and slide glass sunroof and full leather trim in either black or stone, electric drivers seat and heated front seats, with the Nav model also getting integrated SatNav.
The Mazda CX-5 2.2-litre diesel 150ps 2WD SE-L Lux costs from £24,495 and the SE-L Lux Nav from £25,195, £1200 more than the SE-L models they’re based on and a chunk less than having to buy the Sport model to get the sunroof and leather.
The new trim levels take the CX-5 range to a choice of 20, with prices from £21,595 to £29,395.
