Well at least the CX-5 is now Certified as being Truffula Tree Friendly.!
y'know...I was reading about the specs on this thing in Australia. I want the SkyD turbodiesel! It's AWD and has a tow rating of 3800#! The acceleration was the same as the petrol version, too. This thing is enough to tow my Miata on an open trailer.
You know that we never get the good stuff here in the States.
Yeah, the Skyactiv diesel is coming here, Mazda is using them for racing next year here in states, I think in Grand Am or SCC? No word on which models they will put them in, but I've been watching their models in other parts of the world to get a glimpse of what they might bring here.
Personally, I like the CX5, but I would love to see the skyactiv D in the 3 5 door. Think about that...compact wagon, albeit FWD, turbodiesel, 6sp auto. 50mpg? Sign me up.
turbodiesel Mz2 would be titty sprinkles.
I've been eyeing the TDI Golf/Rabbit for a while. 4 doors/hatch. I would love to see what Mazda can do with the 3.
you know mazda is onto something when rumors of toyota looking to buy those skyactiv engines is circulating.
