The 2017 Mazda CX-5 has been a long time coming but people believe that the vehicle should be worth the wait and it is going to offer up mileage that will simply overwhelm its rivals.
Six years back Mazda said that they would start to offer up diesel engines in the US by 2012 and they said that this would make the line-up more fuel efficient. However, they ran into a problem, meeting the diesel requirements in the US, which are typically tougher than those in Japan or Europe. The diesel vehicles offered didn’t come with the power they perhaps could have.
Now six years later Mazda have reached a way of balancing driving performance and offering clean emissions and they are going to introduce the diesel version of the CX-5 in 2017. The announcement of the 2017 Mazda CX-5 was made at the LA Auto Show recently.
The 2017 Mazda CX-5 is said to be coming with the 2.2 litre Skyactiv-D diesel engine, which has now been tweaked so that it meets the regulations in the US. The vehicle is making its way out during the second half of 2017.
The EPA has to give the Mazda CX-5 an official fuel economy rating, however it has been said that it will come in among the most efficient vehicles in the small crossover segment.
The plan of Mazda from 2010 has seen three delays and the arrival of the Mazda CX-5 is going to be a big milestone for the company and rivals should find it a little overwhelming.
