This combines with the sculpted signature wing to add depth and a bolder
expression that heightens the sporty look of the front face.

NVH performance and Aerodynamics
To realize a quiet cabin environment that enables occupants to enjoy stress-freeconversation while driving, particular effort was devoted to reducing low-frequencyroad noise heard when traveling on roads with coarse surfaces, as well ashigh-frequency wind and tire noise heard when traveling at higher speeds.
Compared to the previous model at a cruising speed of 100km/h (62mph), the newCX-5 achieves approximately 10% clearer conversation levels within the cabin andreduces noise by approximately 1.3dB when traveling on rough road surfaces.
