Quite impressive:


Mazda has released the official EPA fuel economy figures for its 2013 CX-5, and as anticipated, the new compact crossover has achieved an all-important best-in-class designation. The front-wheel-drive, six-speed manual-equipped CX-5 is rated at 26 miles per gallon city and 35 mpg highway, thanks to Mazda's efficient Skyactiv direct-injection 2.0-liter inline-four. In fact, Mazda claims the CX-5 actually gets the best fuel economy rating of any SUV (read: crossover) sold in America, full stop.

CX-5 models equipped with front-wheel drive and Mazda's new Skyactiv six-speed automatic transmission are good for 26/32 miles per gallon city/highway. And while those highway numbers match up with the four-cylinder Chevrolet Equinox, the Mazda's 26 mpg city rating bests the Chevy by a whopping four mpg. All-wheel-drive CX-5s are rated at 25/31 mpg city/highway

It also seems like the Skyactiv diesel is back on the table (I'll believe it when they hit the showrooms though!), which could add a further 30% better fuel economy:

Nice to see Mazda bringing their diesel, but like you said, I'll beleive it when I see it

I really hope they bring the d. Would be the perfect motor for us.

FYI, posted on the Mazda Canada FB page:

"Mazda Canada I do think you need to drive the CX-5 to get a true understanding how revolutionary SkyActiv is -- but for those in search of pure HP numbers, SkyActiv Diesel will be here soon, so hang tight!
