2014 Mazda CX-5: Price, Features And Models For Updated SUV Range

2014 MAZDA CX-5 AUSTRALIA

Mazda has given its top-selling CX-5 SUV a "pre-Christmas makeover" this week, bringing improved handling, a handful of new standard equipment, and a new safety pack.

On the driving front, the 2014 CX-5 picks up re-tuned dampers, bushers and stabilisers, promising improved ride comfort.

The top-shelf Akera model now offers Smart City Brake Support as standard equipment - the first Mazda to do so - which automatically applies the brakes at speeds between 4-30km/h if a possible collision is detected.

Akera and Grand Touring models also get a new memory function for the front seats, while Maxx Sport, Grand Touring and Akera grades get an updated silver finish to their alloy wheels.

All automatic models across the CX-5 range also now get a new straight-shift transmission lever.

For automatic versions of the Maxx Sport, there's a $1490 Safety Pack that adds Blind Spot Monitoring (including a lit LED icon in the side mirrors), Smart City Brake Support and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror.

Pricing for Maxx and Maxx Sport models remain unchanged, but there's a price increase of $400 and $800 for Grand Touring and Akera models.

The 2014 CX-5 range is otherwise unchanged.

      Don't know your personal circumstance but I wasn't able to fit both the Pram and the baby seat into the car.

        Hrmm.. I was thinking of grabbing the 2.2L AWD of this next year... can you really not fit the pram and c***at in?! I have a tiny Suzuki Alto at the moment and I can fit a compact c***at (in rear passenger seat) and pram in the boot..

        Maybe I should be looking instead at the Nissan X-Trail or a CX-9?

        CAZZO - Tell us your issue with the Kia Sportage? probably just another brand basher who knows nothing of the automotive industry. Ive sold plenty of Sportages over the very overrated CX-5.
        ever driven one mate? or have anything intelligent to say?

    Yep, have a Maxx Sport and like it a lot. Handling is good and the 2.5 petrol motor has enough zip for around the city. Haven't done a country run yet. Like the idea that the new version has a 'straight shift' gear lever as i don't think much of the current one with it's different graduations for R, P, D etc. Can't fault the gearbox through and it works well in manual mode. All up, decent build quality and so far no issues. Averaged 8.4l/100km for the first 2000km.

    I've had one since ***h 12 when they first came out. Clocked up 45k kms. No major dramas. Fun to drive, comfortable. Got a diesel and average usually around
    6-7l/100km. I don't drive it too hard but nice to put foot down sometimes, as great get-up and go when you need it. Did have recall for oil issue last year but Mazda provided Mazda 6 as replacement for a few days. The interior makes the others look cheap. I recommend it over the rest. Have to think of resale value and Mazda always holds it on over time.
