Mazda CX-5 Diesel Already Phased Out?
The Mazda CX-5 was unveiled in 2019 in New York, strengthening the Japanese brand’s crossover range in the United States. At launch, nobody is sure of its lifespan on the State side. Well, that ends today – at least on the basis of a report from CarsDirect.
According to the online publication, the CX-5 Diesel does not cross the 2020 model year. This is not a surprise, however, since the CX-5 petrol has a 2020 version from November but with a diesel trim in tow . In January of this year, a huge discount for the 2019 CX-5 SkyActiv-D was released, but news of transcendence in the next model year remained sparse.
CarsDirect also pointed out that production of CX-5 2020 should end this month, and still no news on diesel. This leads the publication to conclude that the compression-ignition CX-5 experienced a quiet disappearance, although the Mazda PRs refused to comment on its investigation of the problem.
There are many reasons reported by CarsDirect why the CX-5 Diesel would have been cut. The Mazda CX-5 is not a cheap car. Its diesel version, however, is a little heavier on the pocket. Available in the Signature AWD version, the Mazda CX-5 Diesel costs more than $ 4,000 more than its comparable gasoline counterparts.
Another downside to the CX-5 Diesel is its not-so-stellar actual fuel consumption. It has an official rating of 29 mpg, which is only a hair improvement compared to the gasoline CX-5. Emissions regulation has however been excluded from the rumor mill, as confirmed CarsDirectthe source of.

Production of the 2021 Mazda CX-5 will resume in August. While there is no chance for a 2020 CX-5 to hit showrooms, a 2021 version isn’t exactly a pipe dream yet.
Additionally, if you’re looking to buy a diesel CX-5, CarsDirect estimates that there are at least 30 units of the 2019 model that are still in stock in the United States.
