Mazda has been a strong player in the compact crossover SUV market with the CX-5, their first model to feature the ‘Kodo’ design language and fully integrate Skyactiv technologies since its debut in 2012.

The CX-5 has remained Mazda’s top-selling model, paving the way for various crossover SUVs. In the U.S., the lineup includes the 2024 Mazda CX-30 starting at $25,000, positioned just below the CX-5.

Other similarly priced models include the U.S.-produced Mazda CX-50 at $29,300 and $30,300. Higher up the range, the new 2024 CX-90, a three-row CUV, starts at $37,845, while the two-row CX-70 mid-size crossover begins at $40,445.

Enthusiasts have been eagerly awaiting an update for the CX-5, which last saw a refresh in 2017. Recently leaked documents suggest Mazda plans to introduce an all-new third-generation CX-5 Hybrid, featuring an in-house developed electrified powertrain, alongside a CX-50 Hybrid potentially utilizing Toyota technology.

Mazda’s upcoming CX-5 is generating excitement with its anticipated range of new engines, created in collaboration with Toyota and Subaru, which are compatible with carbon-neutral fuels. Among its features, the most notable is the Hybrid variant, poised to compete with the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid and Honda CR-V Hybrid in North America.

The Arata crossover prototype and the EX-6 concept, which were presented at Beijing’s Auto China 2024, have aficionados for digital cars buzzing with rumors. Speculative renderings show off the sleek, contemporary exterior designs that are a clear result of these influences, particularly those from the all-electric Arata.

Recently, content creators have also shared interior design concepts showcasing stylish color schemes. It’s important to remember that these renderings are speculative and might not represent Mazda’s final design choices for the CX-5. With prototypes expected to hit the roads soon, more concrete insights into the upcoming changes will emerge as the vehicles are tested under camouflage.
