    I just hope Toyota doesn't buy out Mazda. While Toyota makes reliable cars, they are BORING to drive and lack any sporty feedback. They are just kitchen appliances.

    Same here in Arizona. Dealerships don't want the diesels and refuse to carry them except for maybe 1 model. Nobody wants the diesel and they are overpriced. Mazda might have to do a fire sale to...

    I agree on the pricing. Ridiculous at 50K+ for the AWD loaded version. Although with GM vehicles, you can usually get crazy incentives that can knock that down to low $40's but still a pricey SUV.

    2019 CX5 Turbo - MT Test

    Motor Trend tested the 2019 CX5 turbo with premium fuel:

    0-60 = 6.4 seconds
    1/4 Mile = 14.9 @ 93.6mph


    non-turbo 0-60 = 8.3 seconds
