Top Gear Philippines

Looking to try out the all-new Mazda CX-5? Well, you're in luck. Bermaz Auto Philippines, the Japanese carmaker's exclusive local distributor, will be at the Auto Focus Test Drive Festival later this week, and the recently launched premium crossover is the highlight of Mazda's booth.

The test drive event will be held at the SM Mall of Asia parking grounds from April 20 to 23, from 11am to 9pm. The CX-5 is Mazda's best-selling model and is one of the most popular crossovers in the country. It also features the company's revolutionary G-Vectoring Control, among other new upgrades included in Mazda's new Skyactiv-Vehicle Dynamics.

Also on display this weekend will be the all-new Mazda CX-9 premium SUV and the Mazda 3 Speed in an all-new Machine Gray paint finish. Other vehicles available for test drive include the new BT-50 pickup truck, the Mazda 2 Premium Series, the Mazda 3 Speed, the CX-3 and the the Mazda 6 Sports Wagon.

Bermaz Auto Philippines president Steven Tan is encouraging the motoring public to drop by and get a taste of Mazda's superb driving feel for themselves: "Mazda vehicles have always excelled in driving dynamics, this is the core essence of our Jinba Ittai philosophy which brings the driver and his car together. And what better way for the motoring public to experience this than by actually getting behind the wheel of our latest vehicles?"

If anything, this is the perfect opportunity to see if the all-new CX-5 lives up to its predecessor. If you're on the hunt for a new crossover, you're do well to drop by the event. You'll also get to sample offerings from other brands as well.
