So what is the next step for Mazda right now? It is clear that Mazda is now ready to grow up. They have bee trying to leave their fun and young self behind as they work towards producing more premium looking models.
It was rumored that the Mazda CX-5 will be one of the first models to come in with their premium spec and price but that did not happen. We still do not know the price for the Mazda CX-5 here in the US but the price announced in Japan made it clear that they will be staying where they were at for the time being.
While they won’t be sporting a premium price tag, the Mazda CX-5 will be running around with a diesel engine for the first time here in the US. The Diesel model will be powered by a 2.0-liter SkyActiv-D engine that will be offering about 155PS.
