Mazda CX-5 Diesel Production Starts in Japan
This is the first brand new car to be powered by the Skyactiv-D 2.2-liter diesel engine. This comes in two flavors, either the base 150 hp or a more powerful 175 hp. The more powerful version can sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 9.2 seconds and should do 18.6 km/l on the combined Japanese cycle (43.7 mpg).
We will remind you that the CX-5 is also available with a 2.0-liter gasoline engine that produces 165 hp. Let’s hope the CX-5 goes ‘Zoom Zoom” off the dealers’ lots.
