Mazda CX-5 diesel available in Canada in August

Mazda Canada announced pricing for the 2019 CX-5 Signature Skyactiv-D (earlier post), available in one trim only for a MSRP of $45,950. The 2019 CX-5 Signature Skyactiv-D will be available at Mazda dealers across Canada beginning in August.


The 2019 CX-5 Signature AWD with Skyactiv-D 2.2-liter diesel engine 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 (393 N·m) 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 CarPlay support and Android Auto, 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 km. This is the first time Mazda is offering this included with the purchase price and finds itself comparable to offers from other premium automakers.
