2018 Mazda CX-5 Set On Diesel for US

By  | 

In our current eco-friendlier world, most automakers are striving to go the hybrid or the fully electric route, however Mazda seems to have something else in mind.

Mazda has successfully placed as one of the most fuel-efficient models in the market even without the diesel powered model or the hybrid or EV option.

Mazda currently record an EPA of about 29.6mpg on average with the help of its SkyActiv technology and it is expected that Mazda will only be improving from here on now.

The automaker is currently looking to bring a diesel-powered Mazda CX-5 to the US as a 2017 model, according to Nikkei Asian Review.

This diesel-powered Mazda CX-5 is highly likely to fill up the void left by Volkswagen following its whole diesel scandal fiasco.

Expect to see the Mazda CX-5 arriving with 2.2-liter diesel engine, producing 148 horsepower and 170 horsepower.
