Mazda unveiled the all new generation CX-5 during this year Los Angeles Motor Show. The second generation of the compact crossover comes with many technological changes and just a few aesthetic modifications. As a first for the CX-5, the new generation will offer the SKYACTIV-D 2.2 clean diesel engine from the second half of 2017. It will also be Mazda’s first diesel engine model in the North American market.
The SKYACTIV-D 2.2 to be fitted in the all-new CX-5 for North America will meet the region’s strict emission standards and make the all-new CX-5 one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in its class. The engine also adopts Natural Sound Smoother and Natural Sound Frequency Control, proprietary technologies that reduce diesel knock for a quieter interior.
“We’re confident this engine offers a smart new option for North American drivers who want both performance and fuel economy,” said Akira Marumoto, Mazda’s Executive Vice President and Representative Director.
