The SEMA show in Las Vegas is a great time for automakers to trot out their favorite vehicles with custom paint jobs, modified engines and impressive accessories, and Mazda is no exception. The 2013 Mazda CX-5, which was redesigned with Mazda’s KODO – Soul of Motion design language, showed three new sides at SEMA this year, and we can’t decide which one we like the most!

First up is the Mazda CX-5 Urban. At first glance, it looks like this is just a CX-5 in matte-black paint, but a closer look reveals multidimensional shadows created by several shades of black painted in triangles to complement and highlight every curvature of the new KODO – Soul of Motion design. No two triangles in the same shade of black touch each other, and thin pinstripes in Ore accent select sections. A dual exhaust and 22-inch matte black wheels complete the aggressive look.

Second is the Mazda CX-5 180, which celebrates the beauty of Southern California and its wide array of sporting activities. A stylized map of Big Bear Lake on the driver’s side and Point Dume on the passenger side highlights the snowboarding and surfing hot spots, while Burton Cheetah snowboards and a Rusty surfboard ensure you’re always ready to get out and play. The 180 can go anywhere, thanks to all-wheel drive and custom 20-inch wheels. Inside, leather seating provides a durable yet comfortable place to rest on the way home.

Finally, the CX-5 Dempsey, named for actor and racecar driver Patrick Dempsey, continues the sporting theme with a Specialized Bicycle S-Works Tarmac road bike and a rooftop cargo box, so this CX-5 is ready to hit the road, whether you’re facing traffic in the city or headed out to the trails. A European-specification 2.2-liter diesel engine powers the all-wheel-drive vehicle, while Anatomy Gray and matte Black Mica exterior paint ensure you won’t get lost in a crowd.
