All CXs of 2022 will be AWD, not just CX-5.
Update: A Mazda representative confirmed that the switch to all-wheel drive for its 2022-model-year SUVs is only for the US market. Details for the automaker's upcoming large SUV platform will be shared at a later date.
So there might be a chance that the side skirt trim can still work with a 2021?Sorry to disappoint, but it's not a lip kit. That's the standard trim you'll get on all 2022 CX-5s, the only difference will be the colour, depending on the trim level of the CX-5. Also, since the 2022 CX-5 has redesigned front and rear bumpers, you'd have to swap bumpers to get the painted or gloss black trims (and it hasn't been confirmed that the bumpers will be interchangeable between the 2017-2021 and the 2022 yet). Or you could ask a shop to colour match your existing trim, but as far as I know, nobody's done that on the CX-5 yet, so I have no idea how it would turn out.
Yeah, the soul red with gloss black trim looks especially good!
lol would they still be called “fog lights” if they are located higher like in the headlights? More like secondary headlights? LolI'm not a fan either, but Mazda's use of lime green is a little more subtle than the Hyundai's at least. Thankfully it appears to only be available on a specific trim that has yet to be announced as far as I know.
They may be integrated into the headlights, possibly in the high beam area.
Last statement indicates the cx-50 will be imminent…..feels like it will pick up in terms of price from the Signature trimApparently, standard AWD on CX models has only been planned for the US market (so far).
A report claims to quote a Mazda official as saying the first of a new rear-wheel-drive line of SUVs will arrive in Australia for 2022.www.motor1.com
Infiniti, Lexus and Acura essentially.Turuth is people cross-shop the high-end badges…Merc, BMW, Audi,Porsche.
Mazda has a very narrow window to get “premium” rather than “luxury” buyers.
In fact, what is the “premium“ competition? I thought my Signature was premium lol.
The site is located in Huntsville’s annexed portion of Limestone County and is an on-site partner and supplier to the Toyota-Mazda in Huntsville. They are currently manufacturing parts for the Toyota Corolla Cross and in January, will start creating parts for a new Mazda SUV.
Isn't it going to be RWD/AWD?The FWD CUV planned for the Alabama plant is now expected to be in production in January. This is the CUV that we have seen in camouflage and is slightly larger than the CX-5
It will be FWD/AWD as Mazda previously confirmed that a FWD vehicle CUV based on the Mazda3/CX-30 will be manufactured in Alabama, while the RWD vehicles will be manufactured in Japan.Isn't it going to be RWD/AWD?
The company went on to say that with the 2018 launch of the MAZDA3, the company has moved to Skyactiv Technology Phase 2, an architecture that allows for multiple solutions for EVs. "The MAZDA3, CX-30, and MX-30 smalls have systems that can handle 48V mild hybrids, EVs, hybrids that use rotary engines as generators, and plug-in hybrids. The "new SUV" to be produced at the plant in Alabama is also being prepared with this (engine) transversely mounted multi-solution architecture.
It will be interesting to see how they name the larger FWD CUV and the RWD vehicles. They could go with either CX-7 or CX-70 for the new FWD CUV since we have the CX-30 and the CX-5. The new CX-7/70 would have the updated interior from the CX-30 since it will be based on the new platform.There's going to be a CX-7 and CX-50
The CX-7 should receive positive critics from auto journalists who constantly said that the CX-5 "drives well but it's small". They were saying the same about the first Tiguan, the first Rogue, the first Tucson, the Juke, etc. Perhaps the CX-5 will continue to be sold outside North America. With a line up consisting of CX-30, CX-7, CX-50 and CX-9 or CX-90 it's fair to say there's no need for a CX-5 anymore. If it's the case, some will be disappointed, some will be happy! Let's wait and see what happens. Some markets have a CX-4 and CX-8 that we don't have here but they don't have CX-30 or CX-9. It's hard to satisfy the whole world with the same vehicles. Toyota had a short wheelbase RAV4 in other markets which we never had here.There's going to be a CX-7 and CX-50
