2015 Mazda CX-5 Skyactiv GL Launched, From RM130k: Stock Available Now

Bermaz Motor Sdn Bhd has unveiled a new base variant for the 2015 Mazda CX-5 Skyactiv range, called the GL.

Priced from RM129,552k (with insurance and GST), the new Mazda CX-5 GL takes over as the base variant in the CX-5 4x2 Mid Spec. However, do bear in mind that this isn’t the facelifted CBU model we showed you recently – those are 4WD 2.5-litre variants that start from RM173k apiece.

In any case, Bermaz Motor (official distributors of Mazda vehicles here) say that stock is available right now, which is a very rare thing considering how hot the CX-5 has been since it was first launched. We've heard of waiting lists that stretch well into the six-month mark.

The pre-facelift CX-5 GL here maintains a two-wheel drive (FWD) configuration and continues to feature the company’s Skyactiv-G 2.0-litre petrol engine paired with a Skyactiv-DRIVE six-speed torque converter automatic transmission.

But if you’re thinking this base variant has been completely deprived of an exciting spec sheet, you may want to think again. The CX-5 GL is still equipped with lots of premium creature comforts (which we’ll list for you below), not forgetting the impressive SkyActiv engine, transmission and architecture.

Here’s a quick look at the standard equipment highlights.

Interior Features:

  • Radio with 6 Speakers, MP3 and Bluetooth
  • Reverse Camera with TFT Colour Display Screen
  • Automatic Headlamps On/Off, Front Wiper with Rain sensor
  • Smart Start System (Engine Push-Start)
  • Auto Cruise
  • Sill plates with blue illumination (4pcs)
  • Leather Steering
  • Floor Mat

Safety:

  • Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)
  • Traction Control System (TCS)
  • Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
  • Electronic Brake-Force Distribution System (EBD) with Brake Assist (BA)
  • Six Airbags (Dual Front, Side, Curtain)
  • 4-eye Rear parking sensor
  • Tyre Pressure Monitor (TPM)
  • Burglar Alarm System
  • Tyre Inflator
  • First Aid Kit

Optional Accessories:

  • Full leather seat RM2,900
