The recently updated 2023 Mazda CX-5 is a highly comprehensive and value-for-money model. The only thing missing is a large entertainment screen. And that’s where Gotech GT Mazda comes in and saves the day.
The popular crossover model Mazda CX-5 has recently been updated with the 2023 facelift version, with only a few changes. This is because it is a name that is well-loved by Vietnamese consumers and has good and stable sales figures. The few new features of the CX-5 2023, along with its “super attractive” price, allow it to confidently compete with other competitors such as the CR-V, Tucson, Territory, and Corolla Cross.
In terms of exterior design, the 2023 Mazda CX-5 has been updated with a more modern and elegant look for its main lighting system. The grille, as well as the front bumper, wheels, and side panels of the car, have also undergone some minor changes depending on each version.
Overall, the exterior design of the Mazda CX-5 has become more attractive and modern, in line with the spirit that the Japanese brand has always pursued. What about the interior of the car?
The interior of the Mazda CX-5 provides a luxurious and premium feeling compared to other models in the same price range. Every surface is covered in leather, wood-like accents, metal, or soft plastic. The visual and tactile experience is very comfortable.
In terms of space, the Mazda CX-5 meets the needs of a family of 5 (4 adults and 1 child). In terms of equipment, this is also a strong point of Mazda in general and the CX-5 in particular, with a full range of ADAS safety features, blind-spot warning, power seats with memory – cooling for the front and heating for both rows of seats; paddle shifters behind the steering wheel, heads-up display (HUD), etc.
However, many users might be concerned because Thaco, the distributor of Mazda in Vietnam, only equips all CX-5 2023 models with an 8-inch entertainment screen. Meanwhile, in other markets, the screen size has been increased to 10.23 inches – equivalent to its competitors in the segment.
And this is where Gotech GT Mazda comes in. First of all, the most appealing feature of this product is its 10.25-inch size with a glossy black piano finish – perfectly placed in the center of the dashboard.
Furthermore, Gotech is the only supplier on the market that can maintain parallel operation of two operating systems on the upgraded screen, including the original Mazda Connect operating system and the Android operating system for extended entertainment features.
Because it retains the original operating system, the Gotech GT Mazda screen is fully compatible with the car’s original 360-degree camera system without any modifications. The upgrade process also uses the original connectors without any additional modifications or interference with the car’s electrical system, making it very easy to revert back to the original screen.
Therefore, Gotech GT Mazda is probably the only upgraded screen product that can satisfy even the pickiest customers who prefer to use original equipment but still want to enjoy more than what the manufacturers offer.
In addition to basic applications such as navigation using three different map options, watching YouTube, and listening to music with popular apps, Gotech GT Mazda also pioneers in providing the Gotech GPT voice assistant – with extremely advanced user support capabilities – based on the famous AI GPT technology.
For customers working in management or creative industries, Gotech GPT can be considered as a very useful and powerful tool that can save a significant amount of time and effort. Moreover, the input commands and results are converted into audio format – which is very safe and convenient while driving.
In terms of driving experience, the car has dropped the option of a 2.5L engine. Therefore, the Mazda CX-5 now only comes with the default SkyActiv 2.0L engine with a power output of 154 horsepower and a torque of 200 Nm when combined with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Real-world experience shows that the 2.0L engine of the CX-5 is not too powerful but it’s just right, suitable for the basic needs of users. In return, the outstanding advantages of the Mazda CX-5 are its smooth and comfortable ride and its fuel efficiency.
Furthermore, Thaco has added a dual-layer glass system to the front two windows and a 10-speaker Bose sound system to the CX-5 2023, improving sound insulation and ensuring a great entertainment experience for users.
In conclusion, the 2023 Mazda CX-5 is definitely a model that will maintain good sales figures. It is a comprehensive SUV: beautiful design, luxurious interior, spacious enough, outstanding equipment, and durable, stable, smooth, and comfortable driving experience.
In addition, the price of the CX-5 2023 has been adjusted to be very competitive – giving it the ability to surpass many other competitors. The only somewhat lacking feature is the screen, and Gotech GT Mazda is the solution to fill that gap, creating an extremely desirable car in the sub 1-billion VND segment.
