A little over a month ago, Mazda Philippines brought in the all-new CX-5, one of the Japanese carmaker's best-selling vehicles. With new looks, improved tech, and an overhauled interior, the crossover more than impressed at the 2017 Manila International Auto Show—a good sign for the second-gen model looking to live up to its predecessor.
So does it meet expectations? We recently headed to Tarlac with the all-new CX-5 to find out. Mazda's made several important improvements, most notably to the chassis (which is now over 15% more rigid) and ride comfort, the latter of which benefits from the company's new G-Vectoring Control (GVC) technology, and more insulation around the doors for better NVH levels.
There's also more convenience courtesy of rear passenger seats which recline further back than before, rear A/C vents, and neatly concealed USB and charging ports for occupants. And of course, who wouldn't be struck by the car's edgier looks and more refined interior which features better trim and better overall materials.
