While most automakers are trying to stay away from diesel models right now, Mazda thinks that this is a great time to offer a diesel model here in the US and the consumer can’t be happier.
Ever since the Volkswagen cheating scandal was exposed, people have been very wary about diesel powered model and that has lead to many automakers abandoning their plans to release a diesel model here in the US. Instead of following suit, Mazda thinks that this would be a great time to offer a diesel-powered model since nobody else is.
When they announce the new Mazda CX-5, Mazda also added that their 2017 Mazda CX-5 will also be coming in with a new 2.2-liter SkyActiv-D engine. There will also be two other gasoline engine option as well.
Besides getting a new diesel engine, the Mazda CX-5 will also be coming in with an upgraded exterior design.
