I wonder if this is a unique new engine or just a refinement of a Ford/PSA design?

Mazda currently has available (in Europe)

1) 1.6 PSA/Ford with 68/90/109 hp for the Mazda2 and Mazda3
2) older 2.0 110/140hp commonrail in the Mazda5 (used to be available in the 3 and 6 before the 2.2 was available)
3) new 2.2 CR with varying power levels up to 185hp, available in the Mazda3, Mazda6 and CX-7

The 2.0 and 2.2 are not related to the Ford/PSA design. the Mazda3 with the 185hp 2.2 is in magazine reviews one second slower 0-100 kph than the Golf GTD and less efficient.

But more efficient than the gasoline version of either the VW or Mazda; that's all that really matters.

if you care about efficiency, the obvious choice is the 1.6 diesel. The 2.0 and 2.2s are more focused on performance

They won't sell the 1.6L here because it won't sell. This country puts 0-60 time before fuel economy every time. I think we learned this with the CBEA 16v TDI.

I was checking out an Australian weekly newpaper and saw some ads for the Mazda BT 50 truck, it's really cool 4x4 extra cab that would sell here very well, but alas we are stuck with the regular run of the mill trucks. Those Aussie's have some pretty nice choices in vehicles I have to say.

We have the same choices here. What is worth emphasizing however is that with respect to median household income new cars and trucks are very expensive, to say nothing of the retail price of fuel. People here would much rather have the car and fuel prices and choices available in the USA, and the income to match.

If the Mazda 5 came in a diesel, I would buy one in a second. Maybe I will get lucky with the next generation rebadged Routan or something from Fiat/Chrysler. With 4 kids, I need a van of some sort.
