Mazda5 to Premiere at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show
Mazda will hold the global premiere of the all-new Mazda5 (known as the Mazda Premacy in Japan) at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. Embracing dynamic and elegant Nagare design, the new Mazda5 emits approximately 15 percent less CO2 than the current model thanks to Mazda’s i-stop idling stop system, a direct injection gasoline engine and other technologies. The new Mazda5 features an emotional design that blends elegance with a dynamic spirit. It will be the first Mazda production model to fully adopt Mazda’s Nagare (meaning “flow” in Japanese) design language, which finds inspiration in the beauty of flows found in nature.
The new Mazda5 cuts CO2 emissions by roughly 15 percent compared to the model it replaces and provides a more comfortable ride with linear and smooth performance characteristics. The new Mazda5’s green credentials are further enhanced by its other available powertrains, which include a 1.8L gasoline engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission. European sales of the all-new Mazda5 will commence during fall 2010.
