2017 Mazda CX-5: CX-9 Short Changed

By  | 

We all thought that the Mazda CX-9 was the biggest winner since they were the one that got to run around with Mazda’s new engine but it looks like the Mazda CX-5 was the one that got the better deal at the end of the day.

As nice as it is to have more power, the consumers are also always looking for a more fuel efficient model and that is where the diesel-powered Mazda CX-5 will come in. Most automakers are trying their best not to bring their diesel powered model into the US ever since the Volkswagen scandal but Mazda saw this as the perfect time to start offering their diesel-powered Mazda CX-5.

The diesel model will be running on the 2.2-liter SkyActive-D engine. The fans are now hoping that with the diesel engine, Mazda would also choose to keep the manual transmission around.
