Mazda CX-5 product manager Mitsuru Wakiie says he's not sure whether there will be a next gen CX-5 coming from Mazda. It's a bit surprising since it's still the most popular Mazda vehicle. But i guess they want to prioritize the CX-50 now.
Mazda Uncertain Whether The CX-5 Will Get A Next Generation
Product manager Mitsuru Wakiie is not sure whether the SUV will live to see a third generation even though the CX-5 was the best-selling model in 2022.
With 365,135 units sold, the CX-5 was by far Mazda's most popular product last year when total deliveries went down by 13.3 percent to 1,116,107 vehicles. Even though sales of the crossover declined by 4.4 percent year over year, the volume it generated was still more than double compared to the Mazda3, which came in second at 173,619 cars. Despite being the company's best-selling product, it might not live to see a third-generation model.
When asked about what the future has in tow for the CX-5, the model's product manager Mitsuru Wakiie had a surprising answer: "I'm not sure whether we are going to introduce a CX-5 or not, so I can't give you any details." He declined to elaborate, but discontinuing the model after the current generation runs its course would be a surprise seeing as how it's number one in sales by a significant margin.
