Headed by Pieter Voges, Dealer Principal and André Jordaan, Sales Manager – CMH Mazda Menlyn ensures all your Mazda needs are taken care of.

The CX-5 is one of the first Mazda vehicles to include the SKYACTIV Technology and KODO Soul of Motion styling. This new-generation technology changes the way you drive, understand and appreciate your Mazda which now understands you.

With a solid and attractive stance, the CX-5 resembles that of a wild animal on the prowl – strong, defining curvatures and fierce front headlights. The rear is just as powerful with a rear spoiler and powerlift tail gate.

The interior is filled and decorated with tip-top quality materials and technology. The finest leather was used for the seats, steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake. If you have more than one driver, the memory seats save up to four individual seating preferences. All you need to do is get in, press your number and it adjusts accordingly! A power sliding and tilt glass sunroof was also added for extra luxury.

Mazda really went the extra mile to ensure minimal distraction with maximum modernity. The controls in the cockpit are well arranged and uncluttered. The user-friendly 7-inch MZD infotainment system is touch screen when the vehicle is at a standstill and can be operated through a dial on the centre console when the car is moving. This infotainment system includes Bluetooth, USB, AUX, SatNav and AM/FM radio. On the Individual and Akera models is a ten-speaker BOSE sound system.

The full-colour Head-Up Display is incredible. The speed you are driving, and the speed limit are in clear view as you drive. One could argue that this may pose as a distraction, but I found it to be very handy and had no problem focusing on the road. If needed, the back-row seats can be folded down with three levers and a 40:20:40 split which increases the boot space to accommodate your travelling and luggage needs. The arm rest on the rear seats have integrated USB ports for mobile charging. Keyless entry, push engine start and cruise control are standard in all CX-5 derivatives.

Six SRS airbags are included for optimal driver and passenger safety. G-Vectoring Control (GVC) supports the driver with handling around awkward corners. Whilst turning the steering wheel, the GVC cuts down on engine power and adds weight to the appropriate tyres for extra grip.

Other safety features include Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Departure Warning, Smart City Brake and Driver Attention Alert.

Mazda offers a 3-year/unlimited kilometer warranty, 3-year MazdaCare unlimited kilometer roadside assistance and 3-year MazdaCare unlimited kilometer service plan.
