It did look like the Mazda CX-9 was going to be the biggest winner when Mazda first announced it. Not only did the CX-9 come with a brand new exterior design but Mazda also fitted it with a new powerful engine.
At first, the fans were hoping that the same engine would also be released with the Mazda CX-5 but it was later revealed that the Mazda CX-5 will not be getting the new gasoline engine. It will instead be getting a diesel engine which was even better than the powerful engine.
Ever since the Volkswagen scandal, automakers have been very careful about bringing diesel powered models into the US so you can imagine how happy the consumers was when Mazda reveal that they were going to offer the Mazda CX-5 with a diesel engine.
While the diesel engine has been confirmed, it will only arrive after the gasoline model.
