An Early Look at the New Mazda CX-5 Diesel

October 12th, 2017 by

2017 Mazda CX-5 Diesel

For a number of years, Mazda has been honing its engineering and design prowess via the brand’s all-encompassing SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY approach, which until now has been solely dedicated to improving the performance and fuel economy of Mazda vehicles running on conventional gasoline engines. Now, the Japanese manufacturer is bringing a turbo-diesel engine to American drivers in the form of the Mazda CX-5 Diesel. Soon to be the first Mazda diesel vehicle available to Mt. Holly drivers, the CX-5 Diesel gets a closer look here from the team at Momentum Mazda in Gastonia, NC.

Performance Capabilities

The Mazda CX-5 is a popular midsize crossover SUV that has been satisfying the everyday driving needs of families all throughout Shelby. When it arrives on lots throughout the US, the Mazda CX-5 Diesel will be powered by a 2.2L SKYACTIV®-D turbo-diesel inline-four engine that resembles the engine fitted to Europe’s CX-5 Diesel and will come matched to a six-speed automatic transmission.

And while the European version gets 173 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque, Mazda says that a revision to the vehicle’s injection system will help deliver even more power than that. In fact, while we’ll still have to await the official numbers for confirmation, the word from Mazda is that the new CX-5 may offer:

  • Class-leading performance
  • Class-leading MPG

Features of the Newest Mazda CX-5

Like other versions of the Mazda CX-5, the Mazda CX-5 Diesel will come with standard seating for five passengers and available all-wheel drive. You can also look forward to standard and available features like:

  • MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system
  • Smartphone app integration
  • i-ACTIVSENSE® driver assist suite
  • Leather upholstery
  • Heated front and rear seats
