Mazda Philippines Unveils 2020 CX-5 with New Fully-Loaded FWD Variant (w/ Specs)

Previewed at the sidelines of the CX-8 regional launch in Malaysia, Mazda Philippines has formally introduced the 2020 CX-5 to the Philippine market. Headlining the changes is the availability of a new fully-loaded trim: the CX-5 FWD Sport that slots just below the two all-wheel drive variants.

“We are pleased to launch an all-new variant in the Mazda CX-5 range which will allow consumers to enjoy the model’s premium features at a more affordable price,” shares Steven Tan, president and CEO of Mazda Philippines. He adds, “Since its introduction in 2012, the Mazda CX-5 has been our third best-selling model with close to 5,600 units sold so far. We believe that by introducing more top-of-the-line features in front-wheel drive trim, we can provide a more luxurious and premium driving experience for an even wider market.”

The 2020 Mazda CX-5 Skyactiv-G lineup features enhancements in its suspension designed to deliver an even more supple ride. Meanwhile, interior design elements that elevate the premium feel of the cabin towards the brand’s next generation direction were likewise introduced for the 2020 model year.

Like the 2.5-liter AWD Sport variant, the 2.0-liter FWD Sport also features a new 7-inch TFT reconfigurable instrument cluster display to provide needed vehicle information as preferred by the driver. Also new for 2020 are the updated air conditioning system controls that are now similar to the latest Mazda6 and all-new Mazda3’s layout. The Mazda Connect infotainment system now comes with Apple Car Play and Android Auto smartphone mirroring across the 2020 Skyactiv-G range while the 2.0-liter FWD Sport now also features a 10-speaker Bose Premium Sound System, similar to what is standard in the AWD Sport gas and diesel variants.

New black leather seats with orange trims in the AWD and FWD Sport enhance the dynamic luxury feel of both variants. Now also featuring a memory function, the FWD Sport is at par with its i-Activ All-Wheel Drive-equipped sibling in terms of convenience features. And for the first time in a 2.0-liter Mazda CX-5, the power tailgate now comes standard with the FWD Sport.

On the safety front, both 2020 Mazda CX-5 AWD and FWD Sport variants are equipped with Adaptive Front-Lighting LED system and 360-degree view cameras. They also both come standard with front and rear parking sensors to aid in maneuvering in tight spaces. With standard Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert systems, customers who prefer either an AWD or an FWD Mazda CX-5 will be able to experience a heightened level of safety and comfort with every drive.

For model year 2020, the Mazda CX-5 will be made available with the following prices:
  • 2.0-Liter FWD Pro - 1,730,000
  • 2.0-Liter FWD Sport - P 1,890,000
  • 2.5-Liter AWD Sport - P 1,990,000
The 2.2-Liter AWD Sport Diesel will remain a 2019 model (for now) while supplies last. The price remains at P 2,230,000. The updated AWD Sport Diesel variant is expected to arrive some time next year.
