2013 Mazda CX-5 Video

The 2013 Mazda CX-5 will be a critical player for Mazda’s global sales, says the automaker. That’s a tall order for the compact crossover, which is replacing the poor-selling Tribute, but overall, the CUV shows a lot of promise, according to Cars.com Industry Analyst Kelsey Mays. There’s good interior space and ride quality, and Mazda’s smiley front end is thankfully absent from the model. Will it be enough to finally give Mazda a second breakout seller to accompany the Mazda3?



I've personally been looking forward to this vehicle, especially when it is available with the diesel.


Will it be available with all-wheel drive?


Any horsepower/torque numbers for that SkyActiv engine/tranny combo?


155hp, 150ft-lbs


so when does a 4 wheel drive diesel become available and what is the mpg rating. Does the fact that the difference between gas and diesel is close to.50-70/Gal. Mean there is any advantage to diesel?
