Overall, the exterior stays true to the form of the Minagi Concept, which we saw last March. The interior has assumed a more conventional look and feel.

The Mazda CX-5 sports a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that the automaker calls SkyActiv. The engine combines direct injection, along with other fuel-saving measures, to boost power and fuel efficiency by 15%. The engine is also going into the 2012 Mazda3, and that car is expected to return 40 mpg on the highway. The press release also mentions a diesel engine, but it’s doubtful that it will come to the U.S.

The CX-5 will make its official debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show in September and is expected to go on sale in the U.S. next year.
