Mazda North American Operations announces pricing and packaging for the 2023 CX-5 - the brand's best-selling vehicle in the U.S. For 2023, the CX-5 is available with an all-new Rhodium White exterior premium paint color, complimenting Mazda's Kodo design. As with all of Mazda's SUVs, all 2023 CX-5 models will retain standard i-Activ all-wheel drive in the U.S. when they arrive in dealerships nationwide this fall.

Offered for the first time in the U.S. market, the new Rhodium White premium paint option is a unique color born from Mazda's exclusive Takuminuri painting technology, following Soul Red Crystal and Machine Gray Metallic. Rhodium White is a pure white inspired by Japanese aesthetics finding beauty in simplicity. The paint's fine grain accentuates the shadows on the surface of the vehicle complimenting the CX-5's sculpted body lines. Mazda believes that color is a critical part of vehicle design. It accentuates the vehicle's dynamic and delicate expression while complimenting the Kodo - Soul of Motion - design theme, something Mazda takes great pride in offering its customers.
