News - CARS - 2013 Mazda CX-5 Launches with All-New Inside-Out Advertising Campaign - April 22, 2012

Watch more Canal Internacional: www.ci-webtv.com 2013 Mazda CX-5 Launches with All-New Inside-Out Advertising Campaign Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) today announced the launch of a comprehensive, creative advertising campaign in support of its all-new 2013 Mazda CX-5 small crossover SUV. The campaign has been developed to be as unique as the CX-5 itself. In much the same way that science and technology reimagined the life of Steve Austin in the hit 1970s television series “The Six Million Dollar Man,” so has Mazda’s SKYACTIV Technology reimagined what a crossover SUV can be with the release of the CX-5. To tell that narrative to consumers, MNAO’s advertising agency partner, The Garage/Team Mazda, has created a :60 and :30 version of a national television spot titled “Better. Stronger. Smarter.” which pays homage to the iconic science fiction series. Taking a creative cue from “The Six Million Dollar Man,” the new CX-5 television ads are highly stylized with a 1970s era aesthetic and soundtrack showcasing how Mazda engineers used cutting edge SKYACTIV Technology to engineer the CX-5 crossover.
