Mazda CX-5 Diesel arrives in August

Mazda surprised everyone last April when it introduced the very first diesel-powered Mazda in North America. 

The all-new 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature Diesel is indeed the brand’s first vehicle to offer the 2.2-liter Skyactiv-D engine here. Then, it will also be the first compact SUV with diesel engine in North America as the GMC Terrain and Chevrolet Equinox dieselwithdraw from the market. So what does the Mazda CX-5 Signature diesel offer us? To start with, you have to realize that this is the top-of-the-range version, so there is everything imaginable in the new CX-5 Signature diesel. These include heated and ventilated Nappa leather seats, multi-zone air conditioning, all of the i-ACTIVESENSE driver assistance technologies, a navigation system, and much more. The Mazda CX-5 Signature diesel will start at $ 45,590 and will offer standard maintenance at no additional cost for a period of 2 years or 32,000 kilometers. 

That said, it’s under the hood that the Mazda CX-5 diesel stands out. Its engine offers 168 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque, giving it the best towing capacity in the CX-5 family. It is also the most fuel efficient with an average fuel consumption of just 8.9 L / 100 km in the city, 7.9 L / 100 km on the highway or 8.5 L / 100 km combined. All of this results in a driving experience that equates to the power of the turbocharged Skyactiv-G 2.5T engine, while surpassing the fuel economy of the Skyactiv-G 2.5L engine with cylinder deactivation. 

“Mazda tackles all challenges head-on and bringing this diesel engine to Canadian diesel enthusiasts has certainly been an adventure, culminating in the CX-5 with the Skyactiv-D engine,said David Klan, President and Chief Executive Officer, Mazda Canada. Our journey to the top Mazda means we give our customers the premium choices they expect and the 2019 CX-5 comes with cutting-edge powertrain options, including an efficient gasoline engine. High fuel efficiency featuring cylinder deactivation, a powerful turbo gasoline engine, and now the smooth, refined power of a quiet, clean diesel engine. “
