Mazda Malaysia is now assembling the 2nd generation CX-5 at the INOKOM facility in Kulim, Penang. The company unveiled an all-new CX-5, which was assembled in Malaysia, to its business partners, representatives of Mazda, and select motoring media.
As such, Mazda Malaysia plans to export its locally-assembled CX-5 to the Philippines and other ASEAN markets such as Indonesia, Cambodia, and Myanmar. Currently, the PH-spec CX-5 are sourced from Japan.
Local assembly of the all-new CX-5 in Malaysia began in August. It was also during that time when Mazda Malaysia started using its exclusive paint shop which has the capability to produce the brand’s Soul Red Crystal, Machine Gray, and Snow Flake White Pearl Mica.
