Mazda Teases SEMA Bound CX-5 and MX-5 Vehicles

Mazda is exhibiting a trio of customized CX-5 models, and one MX-5 Miata at the 2012 SEMA show which begins today. 

Each one of the CX-5s takes a different approach to customization. The CX-5 180 focuses on living the active Southern California lifestyle, coming equipped with a snow board, surf board, and topographical maps of Big Bear Lake and Point Dume.  The paint job features a snowy peak, and some surf ready waves, finished in dark and light shades of blue with red accents around the vehicle, along with a matte red grille. 20-inch black chrome alloy wheels finish out the exterior looks of the CX-5 180, while the interior gets white leather accents on blue leather seats, finished with blue and red stitching.

A matte black paint job is the highlight of the CX-5 Urban, which takes its inspiration from fashion and architecture. Thin black pinstripes run along the exterior giving the paint job a multi-dimensional feel, while the headlights and wheels are all finished in matte black as well. Besides the appearance, the CX-5 Urban also receives a Racing Beat dual exhaust.

Next is the Dempsey CX-5, which comes powered by the Skyactiv-D 2.2-liter diesel engine that will debut here under the hood of the new Mazda6. Inspired by the race cars that Patrick Dempsey pilots for Mazda, the CX-5 Dempsey features a paint job of gloss gray, mixed with matte black and accented by red highlights. Outfitted with a six-speed manual transmission, the CX-5 Dempsey also features a trailer complete with a road-racing ready bicycle.

Lastly, Mazda will show the MX-5 Super25, designed for endurance racing. Completed in a black, grey and red racing livery, the MX-5 Super25 features a Sparco Evo competition racing seat with six-point harness, a suede Sparco competition steering wheel and 17-inch Volk Racing six-spoke matte black wheels.
