Mazda releases new CX-5 fuel efficient Diesel model in Canada

RICHMOND HILL, ON: Mazda Canada recently announced pricing for the 2019 CX-5 Signature Skyactiv-D, available in one trim only for a MSRP of $45,950. The CX-5 Signature Skyactiv-D signals Mazda’s intentions to aim this vehicle towards the current crop of premium diesel SUVs that are on sale today, with a mixture of smooth and effortless power delivery that diesel engines are known for, and the refinement and craftsmanship that is the essence of Mazda’s Signature line of models.

The 2019 CX-5 Signature AWD with Skyactiv-D 2.2 provides a high torque driving experience and revs freely at high rpms. A sequential twin turbocharger realizes smooth and linear response from low to high engine speeds, and greatly increases low- and high-end torque (up to the 5,500 rpm rev limit).The Skyactiv-D 2.2 engine delivers 168 horsepower at 4,000 rpm and 290 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm with rated fuel economy of 8.9 L/100km in the city, 7.9 L/100km on the highway and 8.5 L/100km combined. This equals a driving experience with power delivery on par with the Skyactiv-G 2.5T turbocharged engine, while surpassing the fuel economy of the Skyactiv-G 2.5L with Cylinder Deactivation.

Bringing a diesel engine to the CX-5 isn’t enough to make it a premium offering, which is why it will be available exclusively in the Signature trim. In addition to the premium driving benefits of Skyactiv-D, the 2019 CX-5 Signature composes elegant features such as Cocoa Nappa leather seats that appeals to mature sensibilities, genuine Abachi  wood trim that gives a feeling of warmth and satin chrome accents that bring all the styling together. The leather-wrapped steering wheel features unique stitching, while ambient interior LED lighting, a black headliner and an auto-dimming rearview frameless mirror with Homelink® all play their part in creating a refined interior atmosphere. CX-5 Signature also includes Apple CarPlayTM support and Android AutoTM, windshield-projected heads-up Active Driving Display and ventilated front seats, amongst many more features.

The 2019 CX-5 Signature Skyactiv-D includes a complimentary scheduled maintenance for two years or 32,000 kms. This is the first time Mazda is offering this included with the purchase price and finds itself comparable to offers from other premium automakers.

The 2019 CX-5 Signature AWD with Skyactiv-D 2.2 is available in five color options: Jet Black Mica and Sonic Silver Metallic, or premium paint colors; Snowflake White Pearl, Soul Red Crystal Metallic and Machine Gray Metallic. The 2019 CX-5 Signature Skyactiv-D is now available at Mazda dealers across Canada.
