The All New Mazda CX-5 | Northampton Motors Mazda

Mazda CX-5

Mazda CX-5 – Available Now

In May the all-new Mazda CX-5 went on sale in the UK. It is the first car to be designed, engineered and built using Mazda’s SKYACTIV technology, offering guests an enjoyable and fun driving experience as well as solid environmental credentials.

The range of SKYACTIV technologies allows Mazda to build petrol and diesel cars that deliver class leading fuel consumption and CO2 emissions without compromising performance or handling. This significantly reduces the cost of motoring for guests and responds to the environmental needs that are now a key factor in choosing a new car.

Designed fresh from the ground up, Mazda threw out the rule book and made each element of the vehicle lighter yet stronger – enhancing its fuel effi ciency and safety. The result is class-leading engines and a bodyshell made with high tensile steel that is lighter than its competitors yet sits on a 2,700mm wheelbase to provide more space than its rivals.

With the 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel engine (150ps), CX-5 returns 61.4mpg on the combined cycle and emits just 119g/km of CO2. The petrol model is a 2.0-litre SKYACTIV-G (165ps), which offers an excellent 47.0mpg combined and only 139g/km of CO2. Further enhancing its overall performance, the CX-5 comes equipped with Mazda’s startstop system, a choice of two- or all-wheel drive and either a six-speed MANUAL or AUTOMATIC transmissions – depending on the model.

Prices for the CX-5 start from just £21,395 (OTR) and rise to £28,795 (OTR). Like the rest of the Mazda range, the all-new SUV is well specified, with available equipment including a Sanyo TomTom sat nav, an advanced safety system with automatic braking to prevent low speed collisions, lane departure warning, blind spot alerts and an automatic main beam function. The CX-5 also comes with a choice of two new body colours – Sky Blue Mica and Zeal Red Mica.

New Renaultsport Twingo 133 revealed

Renault has revealed the new Twingo 133 RS, the baby of the Renaultsport bunch.

The car conforms with the new styling direction of the updated Twingo range, revealed recently, but also adds elements seen in the current Renaultsport pack, comprising the Clio 200 and the Megane 265.

Most notably the car gets the F1-style blade in the front bumper, while around the back there’s a new diffuser, twin chrome tailpipes, and more aerodynamic rear wheel arches.

Mechanically the Twingo remains as was, with Renault claiming that “its performance and grin-inducing driving characteristics remain intact,” although there has been a slight drop in CO2 emissions.

The three percent efficiency improvement means the 1.6-litre petrol car with 133bhp now returns 150g/km and 43.5mpg.

A Cup pack is available for those that want the firmest Twingo experience, adding lower, stiffer suspension, as well as a set of 17-inch black alloys with wider tyres than the standard ones.

The Twingo RS is available now at Motorparks priced from £13,565.
