Mazda scoops ‘Green Award’ from Total 4×4 magazine

18 January 2013

Mazda’s CX-5 has once again drawn in the plaudits after it scooped Total 4×4 magazine’s 2013 Green Award.

The vehicle has had a highly successful past year with it also claiming the 2012/13 Car of the Year Japan title from an industry panel towards the tail-end of 2012 and it has carried on that strong performance into the new year.

Officials at the publication praised the SKYACTIV technology which is installed into these models as being key to improving efficiency by refining traditional engineering which is implemented in other 4x4s.

The system also gained plaudits for the way it manages to conserve fuel, making the CX-5 last much longer than other competitors.

Alan Kidd, editor of Total 4×4, explained the decision: “What makes the Mazda CX-5 stand out for us is that by making the most of traditional engineering, Mazda has created a vehicle whose other qualities are completely uncompromised.”
