    Arrow Diesel CX5 has landed in the USA

    Another bad decision made by Mazda or Mazda North American Operations!

    Yeah, my local dealer has one, too. Even the sales rep laughed and said it was stupid and he doesn't even tell people about it.

    $42k huh?



    Doubt they will sell much of anything diesel at that price. People who don't know modern Mazda are just going to laugh at that price. Another fail by Mazda.

    Don*t get the appeal of diesel anymore. Times were that diesel was cheaper than gas, but those times are long gone in the US. Also, for Mazda, less power than even the NA engine. Why?

    Signature Diesel $42,345 168 hp, 290 torque, 27/30 mpg. Grand Touring FWD $31,350 187 hp, 186 torque, 25/31 mpg. That's a bunch of $$ for some torque (and a bunch of features a diesel driver may not want). Good luck Mazda.

    RIGHT! Someone who lives near a dealership with Diesel inventory needs to test drive one and report back, with an objective review. On the surface, 168hp and 290ft/lbs seems anemic, compared to the 2.5T models, given the included price premium. Even the fuel efficiency doesn't excite me. My GTR now has 12,000mi and is nicely broken in. Currently I'm seeing just over 28mpg on my daily commute. I can't envision how the diesel will do anything for us, given no performance advantage, 1mpg fuel efficiency advantage and a $4,000 msrp premium over the Signature ($6k over the GTR).

    However...... The real proof is in getting behind the wheel.

    The only thing that could save it is if it's grossly under-rated either by the EPA, or in the power department, and a very solid publication reviews it as such with some really strong evidence, and people "get it".

    Are the latest Skyactiv Diesels in Europe and in Japan considered bullet proof status yet? I recall the oil issue or something like that in the 1 gens.

    How likely is a test drive going to be able to tell you more than you can surmise from the numbers alone? Given that the torque is almost the same as the gas turbo, people should have an idea how that feels. The power is obviously going to be down compared to the turbo, and you*re unlikely to get an idea of the day-to-day real world gas mileage from test drive. Hard to figure how it could come across as anything other than an underpowered car that costs $4K more than the top-of-the-line gas turbo.

    Under most circumstances, it's not the power, it's the torque that is the key to driving enjoyment. One of my coworkers has a diesel Colorado and he tells me that the difference in fuel mileage compared to the gas version is significant. As far as cost, isn't the turbo CX5 about the same cost? (assuming the trim level/features are similar)
    Believe it or not, there are still many diesel heads out there, despite the German diesel disasters.

    No, the diesel version is a Signature. It's a ~$4k increase above the 2.5T Signature.
