With a new exterior design and a new engine under the hood, you would think that the Mazda CX-9 would be the clear winner this year but before the year could end, the Mazda CX-5 sneaked in with its new engine option.
The Mazda CX-5 will be upgraded for 2017. While the exterior will be getting some upgrades, it will only be getting some minor upgrades as Mazda will still be keeping the Kodo design language. What exciting now is what Mazda will be offering under the hood.
According to Mazda, the Mazda CX-5 was going to come in with a diesel engine. It was a huge surprise since most automakers are trying to avoid offering their diesel model here in the US. The Mazda CX-5 will be fitted with a 2.2-liter SkyActiv-D engine along with a few other gasoline engine option.
The 2017 Mazda CX-5 will be arriving in February next year.
