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.
