Is the 2017 Mazda CX-5 Getting a Diesel Engine?
Mazda recently revealed its fully redesigned 2017 CX-5 which received a bolder high-end exterior design, a new body color and an interior designed to appease all passengers. For the new model year, the 2017 CX-5 will also be receiving an all-new engine option. Alongside the SKYACTIV-G 2.0 and SKYACTIV-G 2.5 direct-injection gasoline engine options, Mazda will be offering its first diesel engine model in the North American market.
In the second half of 2017, customers will be able to choose the 2017 CX-5 with the SKYACTIV-D 2.2 diesel engine. The new diesel engine provides a torque-rich driving experience and meets the region’s strict emission standards and makes the all-new CX-5 one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in its class. The engine will also adopt Natural Sound Smoother and Natural Sound Frequency Control, technologies that reduce diesel knock for a quieter and more pleasing sound.
2017 CX-5 Technology and Safety Features
The 2017 Mazda CX-5 features many technology features all designed to make driving safer and more convenient. The Multi-Information Display to the right of the instrument cluster newly adopts a high-resolution 4.6-inch color TFT liquid crystal display. The CX-5 also newly receives an Active Driving Display feature which projects important information from the navigation system right on the windshield. The 7-inch touchscreen position has moved to the top of the dashboard to reduce the amount of eye movement required from the driver.
In terms of safety, the 2017 CX-5 is equipped with the latest evolution of Mazda Radar Cruise Control and Traffic Sign Recognition, which reads speed limit and other signs and displays the sign’s message on the Active Driving Display.
The 2017 Mazda CX-5 will be available in the U.S. shortly after the launch in Japan in February. We can probably expect the 2017 CX-5 to be available sometime in spring of 2017.
