The new Mazda CX-9 had a lot of offer. Not only did it come in with a new exterior design but it was also fitted with a new engine. However, it looks like that wasn’t enough to beat the Mazda CX-5 and their diesel engine.
There was speculation about Mazda thinking about offering the Mazda CX-5 with the Mazda CX-9 engine as the performance of the CX-5 was one of the reasons why some people are reluctant to get one but instead of offering their customer a vehicle with more power, Mazda decided to go green.
Besides the standard gasoline engine, the 2017 Mazda CX-5 will also be coming in with a 2.2-liter SkyActiv-D engine. Most automakers will try to avoid offering diesel-powered models here in the US but that only meant that the Mazda CX-5 was going to get a lot more attention now.
