We are all expecting to see new Mazda CX-5 with more in-car tech and features as well as a higher price tag when Mazda took the covers off. Instead, what we saw was an upgraded Mazda CX-5 which a similar price tag.
Although the retail price for the Mazda CX-5 in the US has not been announced yet, we are expecting it to be around the price of the previous model based on how much they are selling it in Japan. The Japan Mazda CX-5 will retail for $20,800.
Even though we will not be getting a premium SUV from Mazda this year, we are still pretty happy with what Mazda has to offer us. Mazda announces that the Mazda CX-5 for the US will come with a diesel engine option as well.
The diesel model will be powered by a 2.0-liter SkyActiv-D engine that will be offering about 155PS when it arrives. At a time where most automakers would do anything they can to stop their diesel model from coming in, the Mazda CX-5 diesel model is like a breath of fresh air.
