Making its debut at the New York International Auto Show was the 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature AWD featuring an all new powertrain — a Skyactiv-D 2.2-liter diesel engine. The availability of this new powertrain to the US market is just one of Mazda’s latest achievements on their journey to provide a premium automotive experience to Mazda drivers in all markets.
Diesel engines have long been part of Mazda’s Global Powertrain strategy and a large part of their business in Japan and European countries. By introducing a diesel powertrain to Mazda drivers in the US, US consumers will now be able to enjoy a more exciting drive performance without a compromise on vehicle size, utility, or driving range.
Here’s what you have to look forward to:
Performance by the Numbers
Designed to meet the demands of drivers looking for a premium driving experience and a diesel engine option, the Mazda CX-5 compact crossover SUV with a Skyactiv-D 2.2-liter diesel engine offers:
- 168 horsepower at 4,000 rpm
- 290 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm
- 27 mpg city miles / 30 mpg highway miles / 28 mpg overall (EPA estimates)
Thanks to its sequential twin turbocharger, the Skyactiv-D 2.2-liter diesel engine powertrain provides a high torque driving experience, and delivers a smooth, linear response from low to high engine speeds, and greatly increases low- and high-end torque (up to the 5,500 rpm rev limit).

A premium ride deserves unparalleled service, which is why all 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature Skyactiv-D crossover SUV’s include a zero-cost maintenance plan that promises coverage for 2-years or 30,000 miles (whichever comes first).
