Explore the Benefits of Diesel with the New Mazda CX-5

Finding the right model to handle your daily commute can be a challenge and often we find ourselves drifting towards the tried and true gas-powered engines. But with the 2019 Mazda CX-5, you're given more than just one option. Introduced new for this year is the Signature Skyactiv®-D engine, a twin-turbocharged diesel engine that excels in performance. Check out how it compares to gas-powered engines and how it will improve the quality of your job!

Diesel vs. Gas-Powered

Diesel engines are often considered after gas-powered options when shopping for a new SUV but they often excel over their counterparts when it comes to performance. A diesel engine delivers 25 to 30 percent better fuel economy than a gas engine and they can often beat out hybrids based on the model and other auto technology. It's efficient due to the density of the diesel fuel which means it offers more usable energy than gas engines. Often, diesel engines are built more ruggedly so they will last a lot longer before maintenance is required than a gas-powered engine can manage. Diesel engines offer a similar price to gas-powered options and they often offer more affordable options. There is a lot to love about the diesel-powered Mazda CX-5.

Mazda CX-5 Diesel Drivetrain

With the new engine option, there is a lot to explore. The apex trim Signature will be the only model in the lineup to offer this 2.2-liter engine package that can deliver 168 horsepower and 290 pounds per feet of torque. The diesel engine can tow a maximum of 3,500 pounds which exceeds the gas-powered engines 2,000 pounds. Only offered in all-wheel drive, the Mazda CX-5 achieves a combined 28 miles per gallon for an impressive fuel economy.
