Almost a decade ago, Mazda first introduced a diesel engine in its lineup. At the time, this engine was limited to overseas markets. Now, the Mazda diesel engine will finally be reaching our shores in the well-equipped Mazda CX-5 crossover. The diesel-equipped model is coming to showroom floors now.
The 2.2-liter SKYACTIV®-D four-cylinder diesel engine will have an output of 168 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque. This engine will only be available initially on the top Signature trim and will come standard with all-wheel drive.
Mazda has a goal of ultimately selling 10 percent of Mazda CX-5 models equipped with the diesel option. This would equate to about 15,000 a year. Mazda said it had about 20,000 potential customers express interest in the diesel option, and people started placing orders for them earlier this spring.
In addition to the optional diesel engine, the Mazda CX-5 Signature model is equipped with premium features that give it a sophisticated feel and keep you riding in comfort. These include things like ambient interior lighting, driver-seat memory functions, wood trim accents, premium leather upholstery, heated rear seats, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel and front and rear parking sensors.

Ever since its release in the 2013 model year, the Mazda CX-5 has captured the hearts of drivers and industry experts alike. Innovative from the start, the CX-5 was Mazda’s first vehicle to display the brand’s KODO: Soul of Motion design and offer the full set of SKYACTIV® technologies.
The CX-5 entered its second generation for the 2017 model year, “adding a quieter, more refined interior, sharp new exterior, and retaining its fun factor,” Motor Trend noted.
For the 2019 model year, the crossover boasts the powerful new SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter Dynamic Pressure Turbo engine with Variable Valve Timing. All the while, the CX-5 continues to charm drivers as, according to Motor Trend, the “most stylish crossover in its class.”
Tech features on 2019 Mazda CX-5 include smart all-wheel drive, along with a wealth of comfort, convenience, and connectivity features.
