2012 Mazda CX-5 180

Southern California has a way of being everything for everyone wîth its rare ability in acting like a four-season play palace – all in the same day. From the ocean sand to the sandy desert, from the high altitudes to the low lands, this Western region is an adventurer's paradise. Here enters the CX-5 180. Can't decide what to do wîth your 'lazy' Sunday? Do it all. Really. This CX-5 won't mind. Designed to go wîth the flow, whether your plans be set in stone or a last-minute 'Why not,' the CX-5 180 is up for any task.

Outfitted wîth Burton Cheetah snowboards for surfing the slopes and a Rusty surfboard for shredding the surf, the CX-5 180 features a stylized topographical map of SoCal locales Big Bear Lake and Point Dume. Seasonal statistics for the snow and surf hot spots are featured on the front doors to include temperature highs and lows, snowfall and surf rise as well as the all-important digits of GPS coordinates. Big Bear Lake's snowy summit is featured along the left side of the vehicle wîth equipment-appropriate snowboards up top while Point Dume's depth details sprawl along the right-hand side wîth the painted-to-match surfboard topping the chart.

Highlighted by custom-crafted colors, the mapping components featured on the CX-5 180 include dark hues of Midnight and Denim to reflect depth while lighter shades of Tidal Blue and Bay Blue signify height. Dashes of Luminous Red are used across the entire vehicle to indicate roads. Rough or paved, the all-wheel-drive system of the CX-5 180 allows it to maneuver wherever the trail may lead. The same red makes its way onto select spokes of the Mazda Design custom-built 20-inch black chrome alloy wheels, which are wrapped in all-season Goodyear Eagle® F1 Asymmetric 265/40R20-sized tires for added stability and style. A custom matte red finish replaces the stock chrome of the vehicle's five-point grille and continues into the headlamps for added aggressiveness. A satin chrome dual exhaust by Racing Beat adds a finishing touch.

The functional mobility of the CX-5 180's exterior translates perfectly into the comforts of its interior. Exterior-complementing Aqua interior leather is fitted onto the front and rear seats, the §teering wheel, door panels, armrests and the brake boot. Contrasting Bright White leather inserts appear on the door panels, §teering wheel and seats. French seam accents in red and white stitching appear on armrests and seats, wîth the red reflecting the exterior's accents representing roads and trails. A customized trapezoidal stitching pattern is detailed on the §teering wheel, which is marked by a subtle white leather strip at the high-noon position. A custom-painted decoration panel in the topography theme of the exterior adds the final touch to the ebb and flow of the CX-5 180, creating a 360-degree perspective of the vehicle's flexibility, regardless of how contradictory the day's activities could be.
