Cheetah shape inspires CX-5
MAZDA moves into its next design generation with the CX-5 at Frankfurt.
It says the shape was “inspired by the rapid acceleration and turning achieved by animals like the cheetah – that simultaneously expresses SUVlike solidity and functionality with Mazda’s characteristic sense of vitality and agility”.
There are front-drive and 4x4 versions and several diesel and petrol options. Best economy is 47mpg and 139g/km for petrol and 63mpg/119g/km for diesel.
