Mazda CX-5 Diesel

The Mazda CX-5 is a well-known crossover. It’s obvious as to why. With its distinctive styling and impressive versatility, it’s hard to beat. It’s going to be even harder to beat now, since the second generation CX-5 is adding a diesel engine.

This engine shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to Mazda lovers, since Mazda prioritizes innovation. The new CX-5 will keep its previous engine—a 2.5-liter direct-injection gas engine—but it’s also adding a 2.2-liter diesel as an option.

Diesel engines have risen in popularity recently due to their increased efficiency. While the word “diesel” sounds hefty, diesel engines actually use less fuel. You can expect the new CX-5’s diesel engine to have an even higher fuel rating than the current CX-5’s 31 highway mpg.*

Diesel engines are also resilient—they tend to last twice as long as gasoline engines. Plus, you don’t have to worry as much about your engine overheating since diesel engines burn fuel more efficiently and therefore, don’t heat up as intensely while operating.

All CX-5 engines, diesel or otherwise, will come equipped with the new SKYACTIV® technology. This technology enhances the functioning of your engine, transmission and suspension to give you more control and stability on the road.

No matter which engine option you choose, the new Mazda CX-5 is sure to impress you. Stop by Sierra Mazda for a test drive.
