A FUEL saving cylinder deactivation system is being introduced by Mazda on manual petrol versions of its large CX-5 SUV.
The system, said to deliver a reduction of up to 8g/km in CO2 output on the 165ps SkyActiv-G engine, comes as the Japanese car maker goes about making changes to the CX-5 line up.
Prices for the 14 model range rise by around £2,000 and now run from £27,030 to £39,085 with the option of automatic transmission available on all grades.
Changes to the technology see revisions to the central command screen which now has a display extending to the full extent of the monitor to give a larger and clearer touchscreen.
The CX-5 range now features six petrol and eight diesel models available in three trim grades, SE-L, Sport and GT Sport.
