Mazda Australia have announced that their new CX-5 models powered by the new 2.2 litre SKYACTIV-D clean diesel engine will deliver fuel economy of 5.7 litres per 100 km (combined cycle).

As the first Mazda to feature the full range of the company’s new SKYACTIV Technology, the CX-5 not only delivers good fuel efficiency but also suitable driving dynamics. (copyright image)

The new 2.2 litre SKYACTIV-D engine provides 129 kW of power and 420 Nm of torque.

With diesel-powered CX-5s matched to All-Wheel Drive and the new SKYACTIV-Drive automatic transmission Mazda is also offering a diesel automatic combination in Australia.

“We’ve been keen to add a diesel engine with an automatic transmission to our range for quite some time. The development of the CX-5 and our new SKYACTIV Technology has given us this opportunity and, quite frankly, we can’t wait to get it here,” said Mazda Australia national marketing manager Alastair Doak.

“There’s certainly demand for a diesel automatic combination, particularly in the SUV segment and with the right powertrain combinations, plus all-new technology and design we’re confident that CX-5 has the goods to become one of Australia’s most popular SUVs.

In addition to new SKYACTIV engines and transmissions, the CX-5 also features Mazda’s new SKYACTIV body and chassis for improved dynamics and safety when compared to the former Mazda Tribute.

The new Mazda CX-5 is scheduled to arrive locally in mid-2012.
