The first of Mazda's next-generation products to blend SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY with KODO design.

Mazda Motor Corporation announced that its all-new compact crossover SUV will be called the Mazda CX-5. This is the production model derived from the Mazda MINAGI concept car, which debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March this year.

The CX-5 will be the first production vehicle to incorporate 'KODO - Soul of Motion' Mazda's new design theme that premiered on the Mazda SHINARI concept car last year, along with a full range of breakthrough SKYACTIV technologies including new-generation engines, transmissions, body and chassis. The CX-5 will join Mazda's global line-up in 2012.

The "CX" in CX-5 represents Mazda's line-up of crossover SUV vehicles, which also includes the Mazda CX-7. The CX-5 will be the compact model in the series.

The Mazda CX-5 will make its international debut at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show to be held in Germany in September 2011.
