The first Mazda to wear the company's new ‘Kodo’ styling will soon debut a refreshed look, as our new spy photos show.
Camouflage obscures those details for now, but it appears we can at least expect new LED daytime lights in the front lamps.
The final design of those LEDs remains to be revealed, although we could see the half-circle design that debuted with the all-new Mazda2 in July.
We might also see an update to the grille design, with the ‘blade’ garnish to extend in behind the headlights, similar again to the new Mazda2.
An LED makeover also appears likely at the rear, with this spied tester once again revealing Mazda2-inspired internals for the rear lamps.
Styling changes are otherwise light, although taped-over fog light housings suggest we might seen an update there also.
Expect the CX-5’s existing mechanical package to carry over largely unchanged, with Mazda’s SkyActive petrol and diesel engines to feature again with manual and automatic transmissions.
The CX-5 remains Australia's favourite midsized SUV, with 1895 July sales pushing it to 12,901 for the year. The Mazda is followed closely by the RAV4 with 10,654 year-to-date sales, and Subaru's Forester is a distant third with 8032.
Watch for more revealing spy photos to appear in the coming months.
