Mazda CX-5 CKD officially available in Malaysia. Mazda Malaysia has added the CX-5 that locally assembled in Inokom’s factory in Kulim, Kedah. The CKD CX-5 is same standards as ‘ Made in Japan’ units with quality control assured by Mazda’s own engineers flown in from Japan to oversee the assembly process.
For local consumers, they could benefits from a lower price tag, allowing the newly introduced 2WD Mid Spec version to entre the market at RM 136,943.70 with insurance. The new entry level variant including auto wipers, steering munted controls, tilt & telescopic steering rack, auto dimming rear view mirror, cruise control, dual zone climate control, stability & traction control, reverse camera, type pressure monitoring and many other items in a list too lengthy to reproduce here.
The costlier High Spec models add a navigation system, leather seats, active auto-leveling bi-xenon headlamps, daytime running lights, keyless entry, electric driver seat adjust, and parking sensors. That parking sensors is excluded from the Mid Spec models may initially cause alarm, but with reverse camera made standard feature, this becomes an excusable omission.
The sunroof and Bose speakers that were available in the CBU models have been omitted, but those two items aside, the High Spec models are essentially identical to the CBU variants, and it is similarly offered with the option of 2WD or 4WD drivetrains. The 2WD model is priced at RM144,125,70, whilst the 4WD model goes for RM154,385.70.
The CX-5 is powered by Mazda’s highly-acclaimed 2.0-litre SkyActiv-G petrol engine which offers class-leading fuel efficiency without any sacrifice in driving pleasure. Outputs are driveline dependent; the 2WD models make 155hp @ 6,000rpm and 200Nm @ 4,000rpm, with the 4WD model quoted with marginally lower figures of 154hp @ 6,000rpm and 198Nm @ 4,000rpm. All versions use Mazda’s 6-speed SkyActiv-Drive automatic transmission as standard.
