We thought that the Mazda CX-9 coming with the new gasoline engine was the best thing Mazda has to offer this year but it is clear that Mazda still has a few tricks up their sleeves.
After revealing the Mazda CX-5, Mazda also announces that the Mazda CX-5 will be coming to the US with a diesel engine option. While all the other automakers are trying to avoid getting their diesel powered model into the US, Mazda saw this as an opportunity for them to sell their diesel-powered Mazda CX-5 in the US.
The new diesel-powered Mazda CX-5 will be powered by a 2.2-liter Skyactiv-D engine. We still do not know how much the engine will be returning in terms of fuel economy right now but it is nice to know that we will have one new diesel-powered SUV in the US next.
The new Mazda CX-5 will be heading to the US first making its way to the rest of the market.
