2016 Mazda CX-5 GT AWD w/Tech Pkg
- Plano, Texas, USA
Yeah but you have to realize that US version CX-5 2.2L diesel is way different from yours in New Zealand. It has added US emission device which requires AdBlue urea DEF. And its MPG (28/27/30 combined/city/highway EPA fuel economy rating for AWD) is not much better than 2.5T. And diesel fuel usually is more expensive than gasoline in the US.Three pages and no ones driven one.
I like the low rpm nature of our one. Makes for a very quiet drive) No need to rev it as 90% of torque available off idle. Visits to gas station are infrequent with 35.6 mpg ( longer on trips)
Combo of reasonable torque and enough power means safe enough overtaking. Very linear acceleration so comfortable for passengers. The price premium for the engine has already been offset but fuel savings in less than two years ( petrol more expensive where I live )
Don*t knock it until you*ve tried one.
