Mazda has revealed its all-new CX-5 crossover ahead of its Los Angeles motor show unveiling later this week.
Due to go on sale next year, the second-generation model will be powered by three engines: 2.0- and 2.5-litre petrols and a 2.2-litre diesel.
Mazda claimed the new engines will offer "powerful, linear performance" along with "outstanding real-world fuel economy and remarkably low emissions", though no further has been released at this stage.
The current 150hp 2.2-litre diesel engine emits 119g/km of CO2 and returns 61.4mpg, placing it in the 23% 2016/17 BIK tax bracket.
The new CX-5 will also debut a heads-up display and a remote-controlled tailgate.
Last year, Mazda was ranked as the 21st-biggest fleet manufacturer in terms of registrations, with 19,923 units, a 40.1% increase on 2014's figures.
The current CX-5 is the company's best-selling model in Europe and represents around a quarter of the firm's global sales.
