Mazda CX-5 Epic Drive - Lake Baikal


Leading documentary maker Ed Bazalgette, Mazda and award-winning British video production company Kingdom Creative have co-created a short film about Lake Baikal. More than 400 miles long, up to 50 miles wide and with a maximum depth of over a mile, this 25 million-year-old lake is the most voluminous on the planet with more than 20 per cent of the world’s fresh water held within its vast shoreline. Famed for its unique and complex ecosystem, each year Lake Baikal freezes to create a stunning winter environment, one that recently played host to Mazda Epic Drive Siberia: an adventurous driving event that saw 65 media from across Europe cross the lake in standard production Mazda CX-5 AWDs. Making four 72km crossings of the lake, Mazda became the first manufacturer to successfully cross this unforgiving yet beautiful frozen water mass.

    With a century of history that has seen Mazda turn itself from a manufacturer of cork products to a successful independent global automotive company, Mazda’s story has had engineering innovation at its heart from the very beginnings of the company. And Mazda has never been afraid to highlight the capabilities of that engineering by demonstrating its products in the public eye, putting them to the test on challenging, pioneering and ambitious drives to prove just how good they are.This never stop challenging approach, started from Mazda’s very first vehicle: a three-wheeled open truck called the Mazda Go. Having switched from cork products to machine tools in 1921, new company President Jujiro Matsuda realised his company had the expertise to produce a product to meet the new demand for utilitarian three-wheeled trikes caused by Japan’s economic upturn. The first motorised vehicle ever produced by the Toyo Kogyo company, as Mazda was then called, it already embodied the characteristics of the company’s approach to automotive innovation, as unlike lots of rivals, it had a ground-breaking rear differential and a reverse gear.

  • Mazda CX-5 2019 in the Arctic Circle

    With the second generation CX-5, Mazda’s engineers delivered an SUV that takes the Jinba Ittai car-and-driver as-one design and engineering philosophy to the next level. Complimented by the introduction of G-Vectoring Control (GVC), the first of Mazda’s Skyactiv-Vehicle Dynamic technologies, it became more comfortable, refined and responsive. Such attributes have earned Mazda’s ground-breaking SUV high praise globally, and it was a top three finalist in the 2018 World Car of the Year awards. The updated, 2019 CX-5 builds on the many and diverse strengths of the second generation model with refinements focused on two key areas - cabin quality and technology, and driving dynamics. Numerous interior elements have been refined and upgraded to raise the quality of both the cabin environment and its HMI technology. A new, high grade interior package features genuine Nappa leather, real wood decorative panels and other high-quality materials. This package also includes a seven-inch TFT LCD display that can show a variety of information, mounted in the centre of the driver’s instrument cluster. And front-seat ventilation is adopted on models with leather upholstery. In addition, on-board connectivity has been evolved to support both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing users to operate both iPhone and smartphone apps via the Mazda MZD Connect system.
