PT. Mazda Motor Indonesia (MMI) is launching the All-New Mazda CX-5, a compact crossover SUV that provides a preview of what Mazda line will look like from now on. The All-New Mazda CX-5 is the first model to fully adopt all elements of Mazda’s Skyactiv technology which includes Skyactiv G, Skyactiv-DRIVE, Skyactiv-BODY and Skyactiv -CHASSIS
The Mazda CX-5 is intended to replace the old Mazda CX-7. Designed with crisp modern lines, equipped with more responsive handling, a beautifully trimmed interior, superior on-road dynamics, and more importantly a bigger inside, the Mazda CX-5 is certainly a well thought improvement.
This is reflected in the launching speech by Keizo Okue, President Director of MMI when introducing Mazda CX-5 as a car “that offers the performance and agility of an SUV, while still producing outstanding fuel efficiency is what we believe SUV enthusiasts here in Indonesia needs”
Since its first launch in 16 February 2012 in Japan, the All-New Mazda CX-5 has garnered positive acclaims and reviews from the global markets. In Japan, the annual sales target of the Mazda CX-5 was reached in only 45 days after its launch. In fact, Mazda Japan has had to increase their yearly Mazda CX-5 production twice to keep up with the demand.
Hoping its to do the same here, MMI is banking that Mazda CX-5 will be the third sales pillar for its Indonesian market, behind the Mazda 2 for passenger use and the BT-50 for commercial use. Okue also added that “MMI strongly believe that the All-New Mazda CX-5 will be warmly welcomed by the Indonesian market.”
