ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

A new crossover will soon be added to the Mazda stable. Details are sparse, but Mazda recently announced that the new SUV, which will be dubbed the CX-5, is slated for a September debut at this year’s IAA Motor Show in Frankfurt, Germany.

The CX-5 is expected to replace Mazda’s aging Tribute, a small SUV that’s mechanically similar to the popular Ford Escape. Mazda says the CX-5 is the production version of the handsome MINAGI concept car, which debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Both the MINAGI and the CX-5 will utilize Mazda’s new futuristic “Soul of Motion” design.

According to Mazda, the CX-5 is also set to utilize the brand’s fuel-saving SKYACTIV technologies, which include engines, transmissions, vehicle bodies, and chassis assembly intent on saving fuel while preserving performance. Mazda says the CX-5 will go on sale globally in 2012, making it one of the automaker’s first vehicles utilizing the much-touted technology.

The CX-5 will join Mazda’s other crossovers, the midsize CX-7 and CX-9, slotting beneath both models in size and price. In addition to final exterior styling details, specifics regarding engine size and final pricing have not yet been set for the CX-5, though we’d bet it will offer strictly four-cylinder engines and start somewhere in the mid-$20,000 range. The model’s release date is also up in the air, although a spring 2012 debut is likely.

The CX-5’s predecessor, the Tribute, debuted in 2001 along with Ford’s popular Escape. While the Escape quickly rose to become one of the best-selling compact SUVs, the Tribute never fared quite as well, though it did enjoy modest success in its own right. Both SUVs were joined in 2005 by the Mercury Mariner, the most luxurious of the group, before a redesign for 2008.
