There were talks about Mazda is looking to inch their way into the premium market soon and that was one of the reasons why so many people believe that the 2017 Mazda CX-5 was going to come in with additional premium features and a higher price but based on what we know of the CX-5 and the announce price in Japan, we know that the Mazda CX-5 is going to arrive as a premium model just yet.
According to Mazda, the Mazda CX-5 will be sold for $20,800 in Japan. The price should be a little different when it comes to the US but at least we know it will not be carrying a premium price tag.
Mazda also reveals that the US model will come with a diesel engine option as well. The diesel model will be running on a 2.0-liter SkyActiv-D engine that will be offering about 155PS.
While the 2017 were not made into a premium model, it is believe that Mazda is still working towards that goal which means the next CX-5 could be the premium model that we all have been waiting for.
