LONDON, October 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

  *New 'SE-L Lux' models add sunroof, power adjusted driver's seat, leather
    trim and heated front seats
  *Two new SE-L Lux models from £24,495 (SE-L Lux) and £25,195 (SE-L Lux Nav)
  *Outstanding emissions from 119g/km and fuel economy up to 61.4mpg

Reacting to customer feedback, Mazda is introducing two new models to the
Mazda CX-5 compact SUV line-up - both fitted with the company's innovative
fuel-saving SKYACTIV technology - the SE-L Lux and SE-L Lux Nav

Both models, now available in showrooms across the UK, are based on the
2.2-litre diesel 150ps 2WD SE-L, with manual transmission and feature the
addition of a powered tilt-and-slide glass sunroof, full leather trim in Black
or Stone (no cost option), a six-way power adjustable driver's seat and heated
front seats with three-stage temperature settings.

"Many potential Mazda customers have expressed an interest in being able to
acquire a CX-5 with a sunroof and leather trim without having to purchase a
range-topping Sport model. Now, responding to that latent demand, we are
adding two models to our Mazda CX-5 range, based on our most popular and
economical powertrain - the 2.2-litre diesel 150ps with 2WD and six-speed
manual transmission. The premium is an extremely modest £1,200 for an
upgraded specification which would cost more than £2,500 with some rival
brands," comments Peter Allibon, Sales Director, Mazda UK.

The Mazda CX-5 2.2-litre diesel 150ps 2WD SE-L Lux is available from £24,495
on the road (OTR), while the SE-L Lux Nav costs from £25,195 (OTR) - both
prices being £1,200 above the standard SE-L models.

"Every Mazda CX-5 offers customers a remarkably compelling ownership
proposition, thanks to its typically Mazda fun-to-drive performance, high
specifications, attractive pricing, low running costs and excellent residual
values," adds Allibon.

Mazda's ability to defy convention and deliver uniquely appealing cars with
innovative fuel-saving SKYACTIV technology, such as the CX-5, has been given
numerous glowing third-party endorsements over the last 12 months.

Most recently, Mazda CX-5 won the SUV category in the 2013 Women's World Car
of the Year Awards. Earlier this year, the Mazda CX-5 won awards from Auto
Express, WhatCar?, Total 4x4 and Fleet World magazines. Popular weekly
magazine Auto Express praised the Mazda CX-5 for "rewriting the rulebooks
for crossovers with a blend of great looks, useful practicality, loads of tech
and low running costs" - claiming the 'Best Crossover' crown for the second
year in a row.

Experts at Britain's best selling car buyer's guide WhatCar?, named the
150ps diesel Mazda CX-5 as Britain's 'Best Buy' SUV in the under £25,000
category, stating: "This really is one of the finest diesels you can
buy.There's bags of room for four tall adults, the boot is huge and the rear
seats fold down easily. With low running costs and remarkable CO [2]
emissions, you end up with an unbeatable buy."

The 20-strong line-up of Mazda CX-5 models is priced from £21,595 to £29,395
(OTR).Customers can choose petrol or diesel engines, manual or automatic
transmissions and 2-wheel drive (2WD) or all-wheel drive (AWD) - depending on
model. CO [2] emissions start at 119g/km with fuel economy up to 61.4mpg.
