Mazda CX-5 Diesel Number Won’t Match Customer’s Expectation

By  | 

The biggest reason why people would actually opt to get a diesel-powered model is because it is much more fuel efficient when compared to the gasoline-powered engines but that might not be the case with the Mazda CX-5 diesel model.

According to the latest EPA numbers that were shown on the FuelEconomy.gov website, the Mazda CX-5 diesel delivers about 31mpg on the highway and 28mpg in the city. The all-wheel-drive model will be offering about 30mpg on the highway and 27mpg in the city.

While the numbers in the city are slightly better than the gasoline-powered models, the highway numbers the same as the gasoline models. Of course, the other benefit of having a diesel-powered model is the extra torque that it will be getting.

So if torque and towing capability is your main concern, the diesel would still be a good option but if you are looking for a fuel-efficient model, the diesel engine might not be your answer here.
