2016 Mazda CX-5 Facelift Leaks Ahead of LA Auto Show

The LA Auto Show officially starts for the press on Wednesday, at which point we expect to get our first full look at the new and improved 2016 Mazda CX-5. Because we live in the age of the Internet, you can get your first look at it right now.

Turns out that World Car Fans got a hold of a brochure that previews the few modest yet noticeable changes that will grace the 2016 CX-5 when it hits showrooms like that of Bakersfield Mazda next year.

There will be modest changes from this 2015 CX-5 for the 2016 model year.

From what we gather, the 2016 CX-5 will have new bumpers in front and back, updated headlights, and a new grille pattern. The brochure also alludes to LED elements in the headlights, but it’s possible (and likely) that they won’t be making their way stateside.

On the inside, you can expect the newest and grooviest version of the Mazda Connect infotainment interface.

Apart from this, it’s hard to say with any certainty what—if any—significant changes Mazda will make during the CX-5’s mid-cycle refresh. If Mazda’s track record is any indication, whatever it decides to do will only serve to make the 2016 CX-5 the best compact SUV on the market.
