After a two week sea journey from Japan, the very first Australian-spec Next-Gen Mazda CX-5s have arrived in Brisbane ahead of the national launch.

With 50 allocated to launch activities, a total of 1,200 Mazda CX-5s will be in the country ahead of the on-sale date. They will be spread across different cities to meet the initial demand generated over the pre-launch period that gave Australians the opportunity to win a Next-Gen Mazda CX-5.

“Never has Mazda seen such a remarkable response from people wanting more information on a new vehicle,” said Mazda Australia marketing director Alastair Doak.

“This forward interest is exciting for everyone at Mazda and our Dealership network.”
