Mazda CX-5 at SEMA

The SEMA Motor Show is here and so is Mazda carmaker. At the event, the specialists have presented three Mazda CX-5 crossovers. Now, the first model that caught our attention is the CX-5 180, a model that has a blue exterior covered in a topographical map of the Big Bear Lake and Point Dume from the South of California. The new crossover also features a roof rack and 20-inch alloy wheels covered in Goodyear Eagle F1 tires measuring 265/40R20 to send the output to the road and to offer more stability and style. It also has a satin chrome dual exhaust offered by Racing Beat. Designers have offered leather for the interior, onto the front and rear seats, door panels, the steering wheel, armrest and brake boot. The Mazda CX-5 180 crossover features a specially-painted decoration panel that creates a 360 degree perspective of the flexibility of the car, regardless of how contradictory the activities of the days could be.

Next on the list we have the Mazda CX-5 Urban, a model covered in a matte finish. Its dark surface features multi-dimensional shadows with each triangular-like design shaped to highlight each bend and twist of the sheet metal of the car. To send the output to the road, the engineers have fitted the model with 22-inch Ace Alloy Scorpio matte black wheels covered in Nitto Tire NT420 all-season tires measuring 295/30R20.

Another model presented at the SEMA Show is the Mazda CX-5 Dempsey, a model outfitted with a Specialized Bicycle S-Works Tarmac road bike and a Thule Atlantis rooftop cargo box. It receives power from a SKYACTIV-D 2.2-liter diesel engine capable of generating 129 kW and 420 Nm of torque. It is mated to an all-wheel drive system and it uses a 6-speed manual transmission to send the output to the wheels. To transfer the power produced to the road, the engineers have offered 20-inch black chrome alloy wheels covered in Michelin Latitude Sport all-season tires measuring 255/45ZR20. On the inside it features black perforated leather inserts. The steering wheel, shifter boot, armrests, door panels, the center storage bin, but also the front and rear seats feature contrasting Luminous Red stitching and are all covered in leather.
