Furthermore, the model is said to be available in both automatic and manual transmissions along with varied color choices to its body. Other updates on the model include driver aids such as lane keep and blind spot warning systems along with a traffic sign recognition system.

The unit had also been deemed to have fused the SUV into a more compact frame.

Price and Availability

As reported by Cars In Trend, the brand new 2018 Mazda CX-5 has dominated car sales this year and is expected to consistently hold the title by next year as the redesigned model will be released.

The said updates were estimated to value the unit to at least $22, 675 (the price of its predecessor) up to $24,000.
