Mazda’s CX-5 SUV is relatively new in the market. It just debuted two years ago and has since been a hit among buyers and professional auto reviewers alike. With its top-notch quality, low-running costs and excellent road manners, giving it a facelift is hardly necessary given that it is still appealing as it is.
However, the folks at Mazda think otherwise. The small Japanese automaker wants to keep their popular crossover ahead of the pack by giving it an update, with the refreshed model expected to make its debut at the LA Auto Show later this month.
Surprisingly, a couple of images of what appear to be the updated version of Mazda CX-5 made their rounds online ahead of its debut. The photos, which are believed to have been scanned from the 2015 CX-5 brochure, first appeared at the Worldscoop forums via World Car fans. The images reveal a revised chrome front-grille, freshly-minted LED headlight design, new fog lamp surrounds and taillight graphics as well as a new set of wheels.
Unfortunately, there were no photos of the CX-5’s interior, but the latest Mazda Connect Interface will likely be available to the updated CX-5. Also, if Mazda is all out in keeping the CX-5 at the top of its game, chances are, the automaker will do a handful of revisions to the vehicle’s interior as well.
Mazda has not yet confirmed if there will be changes to the CX-5’s powertrain lineup and how much the vehicle will cost or when it will be officially available to the public. As such, those looking forward to know more about this crossover will have to wait until its unveiling at the LA Auto Show next week.
