And look what is revealed when one pops the lid. The salesperson really couldn't offer an explanation for the blanking plug to the right of the fuelling cap and I wonder if perhaps Mazda have it in there minds to introduce an AdBlue tank for subsequent updates to the model. An alternative view of course is that in some markets an AdBlue tank is already fitted.

Sounds likely - the old CX7 2.2D I believe was fitted with an Adblue system?

And if we are playing spot the difference, I reckon the whale tail antenna is bigger?

On the Mazda.co.uk configurator, you cannot select the safety pack if you elect to have a Petrol CX-5. Hopefully this is just an error of the configurator, otherwise will be bizarre restriction.

Had the brochure for the new CX-5 through the door today, confirms that the Safety Pack is only available for Diesel Sport Nav model not Petrol Sport Nav - makes no sense to me.

I'm back....

I've got mine, picked it up Weds 21st. Better car altogether despite the outgoing model being fantastic.

Loads quieter, seats more comfortable and steering more precise.

I absolutely love it! If there's to be a downside then it's the infotainment system, I won't go into it in any detail but suffice to say despite my disputes with TomTom on my last one and although said TomTom was clunky it was more intuitive.

Hi Alex.  Glad you're enjoying the new model even more - something for me to look forward to in a year or so.

Re the Infotainment system, what version of the software did it come set up with?  And has the dealer made any comments about any update to provide Android Auto?

Thanks.

Not sure of version number, I put the card into my laptop added the Info programme and registered and immediately was given a huge update. The only Android I have is the connectivity with my Galaxy 4 on Bluetooth.

I've set myself up with the home Wi-Fi and I'm assuming the "Live Traffic" is via the phone on Bluetooth, but have had very little evidence that it actually works.

Car is far superior to what was already an excellent vehicle.

I have got one, picked it up a week ago. A significant improvement on the previous model, most notably MUCH quieter. Still the crappy sat-nav though.

Visited dealer and they confirm Safety Park not available for Petrol Sport Nav YET. They said Mazda seriously underestimated the changed demand in UK for Petrol models over Diesel and the Safety Park will become available, together with other options on Petrol versions in Feb 2018.

Is anyone else not too keen on the wheel design on the new Sport Nav? To me, they've managed design an alloy that looks more like a wheel trim! I prefer the design on the previous model.

In every other respect though, I think the new car looks better than the model it replaces.

There's an 'Airdam kit' available now that adds a very slight extension to the plastic trims around the bottom of the car and incorporates a satin silver highlight. Looked good on the model I saw at the dealers. Not cheap though - list price is over £700 without fitting!
