When tasked with developing the 2017 Mazda CX-5, the automaker’s team of designers and engineers had one primary directive to follow: Don’t screw it up.

That may seem like an obvious mandate, but it’s a particularly important one for a vehicle that means so much to Mazda globally. After all, the CX-5 has been on a tear since hitting the market back in 2012, and now accounts for almost a third of the brand’s global sales annually. If there ever was a golden goose in Mazda’s lineup, this compact crossover would be it.

In the face of that make-or-break maxim, the 2017 Mazda CX-5 makes its newness known right away. The original CX-5 was the first of Mazda’s vehicles to feature the so-called KODO design language, and so it’s fitting that this second-gen version gets fitted with the latest iteration of it. While new, the CX-5’s look is clearly an evolution of the original and features a modern take on the same sculpted lines as before.

With so many cars entering the compact crossover segment, I'm actually rather impressed to see that this particular model would place so highly amongst all the rest like the Qashqai and the Honda CR-V. Not to mention the number of cars that are still slated to join this classification coming up too...
