Mazda Discontinues America’s Last Mainstream Diesel SUV

The Mazda CX-5 Diesel is not available for 2020 for U.S. customers.

The gasoline-powered 2020 Mazda CX-5 arrived in November 2019, but since no diesel version has appeared for 2020.

CarsDirect has found out that roughly 30 diesel CX-5s left in stock in the USA, but they all are of the 2019 model year.

Mazda gives no official confirmation, but it seems the manufacturer quietly removed the diesel version from the lineup for America. Currently U.S. shoppers are not able to purchase a 2020 CX-5 Diesel.

In addition to its comparatively high price of $42,045 ($4,100 more expensive than the gasoline modification), the model’s official fuel economy rating is just 29 mpg – only 1 mpg over the standard CX-5’s, and much worse than the fuel efficiency figures of a growing number of hybrids.   

This month, Mazda ends making the 2020 CX-5s. In August, they will start building the 2021 models.

Two gas engines remain available for the Mazda CX-5: a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder 187-hp one and a 227-hp turbocharged unit.
