It's Official: The 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature Diesel Goes On Sale Soon

Mazda's Skyactiv-D 2.2-liter turbocharged diesel engine will be an optional powerplant in the 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature in the second half of 2019.

It's official. It's a done deal. We're ready. Mazda unveiled the production-ready CX-5 Skyactiv-D at the New York International Auto Show yesterday.

The new diesel powerplant is the third powerplant in Mazda Canada's CX-5 lineup, in addition to the 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G that serves as the CX-5's primary powerplant and the Skyactiv-G 2.5 turbo that's standard in the CX-5 Signature. The diesel adds yet another layer of appeal to Mazda Canada's best-selling model. The diesel's torque – 290 lb-ft – plateaus from 2,000 rpm upward. 

Mazda's diesel is a unique item, in part because of Mazda's efforts to work closely with the Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board in order to ensure the CX-5 meets the strictest regulations.

The CX-5 is also distinguished by its capacity to rev high, unlike traditional diesel engines. That smooth, free-flowing, linear response is much more in keeping with Mazda's historic driver-centric nature.

The 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature AWD Diesel will earn a Natural Resources Canada fuel economy rating of 8.9 L/100km in city driving and 7.9 L/100km in highway driving for a combined 8.5 L/100km rating. 

Centennial Mazda will be able to announce pricing for the diesel closer to the on-sale date in the second half of 2019.

What Mazdas Include Adaptive Front-Lighting? And What Is Adaptive Front Lighting?

DRLs, fogs, hazards, high beams. Xenons, bi-xenons, HIDs, LEDs. If tires are the most important safety elements on your vehicle, lighting must surely come in a close second place. After all, your vehicle's four tires are the only points at which your vehicle touches the road, and your vehicle's lights both enable you to see what's up ahead and enable others to see you. This is particularly true...
