The Mazda CX-9 was everything that we hope it will be. Not only was it fitted with a new design that looked great but it was also given a new engine that many fans were hoping would be offered on the Mazda CX-5 as well.
While we did not get the new engine, in the end, the Mazda CX-5 got something even better. A diesel engine. Mazda reveals that the Mazda CX-5 will be offered with a 2.2-liter Skyactive- D engine this year.
The numbers are not out yet but the fact that the CX-5 will have a diesel option is good enough for now. Most automakers choose not to offer their diesel powered model here in the US after the Volkswagen scandal but Mazda saw that as the perfect opportunity to offer their diesel-powered Mazda CX-5.
However, you need to be patient since the diesel model will be arriving a bit later than the gasoline version.
