First introduced in late 2012, the Mazda CX-5 is running close to the tail-end of its lifecycle, which typically lasts for around five to seven years for passenger vehicles. Considering that the new facelifted CX-5 has just been launched not long ago, we are quite surprised to learn that rumours of an all-new CX-5 model, purportedly due in 2017, have begun circulating among Japanese social media groups.
The rumour alleges that a concept model previewing an all-new 2017 Mazda CX-5 will be making its debut at this November’s 2016 Los Angeles Motor Show.
It also claims that the turbocharged SkyActiv-G 2.5T engine that currently powers the recently revealed all-new CX-9 will be joining the CX-5’s range of engines.
Assuming that the unverified sketch of unknown origin is a reliable indicator, the all-new CX-5 will borrow a lot of styling cues first seen in the all-new CX-9, which will go on sale in the USA in later half of 2016. Introduction in other countries have yet to be confirmed.
In terms of dimensions, the rumour claims that the all-new model will more less about the same size the current CX-5.
