    Air resistance is squared, not linear.

Shit I just hope the tree huggers let them offer it here period.
    I live in a state where the diesel price is, in some places, cheaper than regular gas! That is why it is almost a no brainer for me - cheaper fuel cost, greater mileage, more torque all wrapped up in a quiet interior (compared to me 2014).

    I think diesel engine is delayed due to engine gasket issue which happens in many countries.
    As mileage accumulates (50K, 100K), these older engines begin to show this issue.

    Mazda certainly wants to be very cautious not to tarnish their reliability image due to diesel engines in US.
    (CX7 was pretty bad for Mazda in USA due to its turbo)
    That is my guess, but the diesel engine issue is real.

Given the 30 cents per gallon premium for Diesel, these factors will keep me in my current CX5 petrol, along with what appears to be plenty of teething issues for Mazda.
    Because it doesn't rev as hard, standing start is less aggressive. Hence slower time. However for overtaking, that's where having excess torque will help.

    Nope as on the dash, traction control is off. It's actually wheel spin

    Because it's not in it's ideal power and torque bands

    Same here, only with a 2015. A diesel is close to the perfect ride.

    Maybe you're not their target market then

    Some of us who have access to cheaper diesel than gas, do occasionally tow things and don't already own a 2015 might still be interested.

    Yeah, my CX5 makes it up my drive-way at a crawl in 2nd gear. My drive-way is so steep UPS refuses to take a truck down it, and panel vans need a running start to get out and they spin all the way. I don't think I need a diesel, considering how my gas burner handles it like a boss.

    I am very curious about the 50-70 times in high gear, etc. and how they compare.

    Right, I never said it's a bad vehicle or noone should buy one.
