I have read and heard all of the rumors about the diesel engine coming to the US. Reports said the engine would come here, but Mazda would not say in which car. This article: http://carscoop.blogspot.com/2012/01...of-diesel.html says it is indeed coming in the CX-5 in early 2013.
When I went to drive a CX-5 last week and mentioned I might want to wait for the diesel, the salesman said, "Yeah, if and when we ever get it. Could be a few years, if that." I figured he just wanted to sell me a car that night rather than risk losing the sale.
Is this article to be believed? Does anyone know if we are actually going to get the diesel version early next year? If so, I can wait a year, no problem.
