The all-new Mazda CX-5 was revealed at the Los Angeles Auto show, early this month. Word is out that the model has already begun production at the Ujina Plant No.2 close to Mazda’s global headquarters in Hiroshima.

The automaker says that it is currently focusing on “a new dimension of driving pleasure for everyone on board, and not just the driver,” and added that extra attention would be placed on maximizing “passenger comfort in the quiet and finely crafted cabin.”

Four years back, the first CX-5 made its appearance and it was the first from Mazda to incorporate the Kodo design language as well as the Skyactiv technologies. The successor of the CX-5 then continued with the same pattern with the addition of more distinct lines and a more attractive silhouette.

Now, the latest model will also be using the Kodo design philosophy and deliveries are expected to begin in February. The 2017 CX-5 will be coming with a diesel engine for the first time ever and it is reported to be a 2.2-liter turbodiesel making it “one of the most fuel efficient vehicles in its class.”
