Mazda design has always set new benchmarks for automotive styling, and Mazda CX- 5 is the first production model created under the new 'KODO - Soul of Motion' design theme. Inspired by the coiled power and grace of a cheetah about to pounce, the KODO design language brings the beauty and vitality of economical, agile movement to vehicle styling.
Mazda CX-5's front end features 'signature wings' – a line signifying wings in flight runs across the bottom of the grille before extending outwards to the headlamps whose styling and positioning were inspired by the intense stare of a cheetah focused on its prey.
The side view gives a powerful sense of a forward motion, with sculpted body sides expressing the tension and release at the heart of the KODO design language. And at the back, prominent rear fenders give a well planted, athletic stance.
