Mazda CX-5 Owners Manual: Interior Care


Do not spray water in the cabin:

Splashing water on electrical parts such as the audio unit and switches is dangerous as it could cause a malfunction or a fire.

Dashboard Precautions

Prevent caustic solutions such as perfume and cosmetic oils from contacting the dashboard. They will damage and discolor the dashboard. If these solutions get on the dashboard, wipe them off immediately.


Do not use glazing agents.

Glazing agents contain ingredients which may cause discoloration, wrinkling, cracks and peeling.

Instrument panel top (soft pad)

Extremely soft material is used for the soft pad surface. When cleaning, it is recommended that you use a clean towel dampened in a mild detergent to remove soiling.

If the soft pad surface is rubbed harshly, it could result in the surface being damaged leaving white scratch marks.

Cleaning the Upholstery and Interior Trim


Remove dust and loose dirt from vinyl with a whisk broom or vacuum cleaner.

Clean vinyl with a leather-and-vinyl cleaner.


Remove dust and sand first using a vacuum cleaner or other means, then wipe dirt off using a soft cloth with a leather cleaner or a soft cloth soaked in mild soap.

Wipe off the remaining cleaner or soap using a cloth soaked in clean water and wrung out well.

Remove moisture with a dry, soft cloth and allow the leather to further dry in a well-ventilated, shaded area. If the leather gets wet such as from rain, also remove moisture and dry it as soon as possible.


Because genuine leather is a natural material, its surface is not uniform and it may have natural scars, scratches, and wrinkles.

To maintain the quality for as long as possible, periodical maintenance, about twice a year, is recommended.

Sand and dust on the seat surface may damage the overcoat of the genuine leather surfaces and accelerate wear.

Greasy soiling on genuine leather may cause molding and stains.

Rubbing hard with a stiff brush or cloth may cause damage.

Do not wipe the leather using alcohol, chlorine bleach, or organic solvents such as thinner, benzene, or gasoline. Otherwise, it may cause discoloration or stains.

If the seats get wet, promptly remove moisture with a dry cloth. Remaining moisture on the surface may cause deterioration such as hardening and shrinkage.

Exposure to direct sunlight for long periods may cause deterioration and shrinkage.

When parking the car under direct sunlight for long periods, shade the interior using sunshades.

Do not leave vinyl products on the seats for long periods as they may affect the leather quality and coloring. If the cabin temperature becomes hot, the vinyl may deteriorate and adhere to the genuine leather.


Remove dust and loose dirt from fabric with a whisk broom or vacuum cleaner.

Clean it with a mild soap solution good for upholstery and carpets. Remove fresh spots immediately with a fabric spot cleaner.

To keep the fabric looking clean and fresh, take care of it. Otherwise its color will be affected, it can be stained easily, and its fire-resistance may be reduced.


Use only recommended cleaners and procedures. Others may affect appearance and fire-resistance.

Piano black panel

The following parts are fitted with panels that have been treated with a special coating that resists scratching.

Dash decoration panel When the panel needs to be cleaned, use a soft cloth to wipe off dirt from the surface.


Scratches or nicks on the panels resulting from the use of a hard brush or cloth may not be repairable.

Cleaning the Lap/Shoulder Belt Webbing

Clean the webbing with a mild soap solution recommended for upholstery or carpets. Follow instructions. Do not bleach or dye the webbing; this may weaken it.

After cleaning the belts, thoroughly dry the belt webbing and make sure there is no remaining moisture before retracting them.


Have an Authorized Mazda Dealer replace damaged seat belts immediately:

Using damaged seat belts is dangerous. In a collision, damaged belts cannot provide adequate protection.

Cleaning the Window Interiors

If the windows become covered with an oily, greasy, or waxy film, clean them with glass cleaner. Follow the directions on the container.


Do not scrape or scratch the inside of the window glass. It could damage the thermal filaments and the antenna lines.

When washing the inside of the window glass, use a soft cloth dampened in lukewarm water, gently wiping the thermal filaments and the antenna lines.

Use of glass cleaning products could damage the thermal filaments and the antenna lines.

Cleaning the Floor Mats

Rubber floor mats should be cleaned with mild soap and water only.


Do not use rubber cleaners, such as tire cleaner or tire shine, when cleaning rubber floor mats:

Cleaning the rubber floor mats with rubber cleaning products makes the floor mats slippery.

This may cause an accident when depressing the accelerator, brake, or clutch (Manual transaxle) pedal or when getting in or out of the vehicle.

After removing the floor mats for cleaning, always reinstall them securely.Refer to Floor Mat 0.
