Mazda will offer a diesel in the US? Maybe.

I am pretty excited about the CX5 Diesel, have been wanting a smaller SUV diesel for a while now, also waiting to check out the new Chevy Terrain diesel when it comes out later this year.

The Chevy version is an Equinox. The GMC version is a Terrain.

Till CARB posts approved results, nobody is selling 2018 Mazda anythings - gas or diesel.
Good observation. I presume there is already a CARB approval for the upcoming Cruze diesel?

52 mpg rating came out a few weeks after CARB emission approval.

No 2018 Mazada CARB approval for anything yet posted. But very few 2018 anything approved yet. Maybe in the May/June time frame?

In my opinion, the Mazda diesel has been, and will continue to be, vaporware.

Yeah, or 1500 days late and counting. They must be selling them elsewhere. I wonder how they are performing where sold. I think I heard of fuel dilution issues in the oil at one point.

The press coverage of the CX-5 is has more credibility than what I saw on the Mazda 6 diesel a few years ago, at least to me it does. I agree that I'll believe it when it arrives at dealer lots, but I think the odds are better this time, if only because Mazda isn't trying to do something different with emissions, as they did with the 6.

Unfortunately I wouldn't agree with the "lots of choices" comment. Better than no choices at all would be more like it, IMO.

Reminds me of the song "Tomorrow" from the musical "Annie"

"The diesel, the diesel, the mazda diesel, its always a day away"

I was at the Ottawa Car show this weekend and they had the 2018 CX-5 on display, with the diesel engine in it. It was a car from Japan though, so right hand drive and you weren't able to touch it or get in it, they had it roped off.

Their display did point out a couple different engine options that would be available in Canada, including the diesel. So it seems like Mazda itself is advertising the Diesel, so I am very confident that we will actually see it next year.

The new CX-5 is a pretty sharp looking vehicle as well.
