Mazda Bringing Its Diesels To The U.S. Market Next Year

According to Japanese publication the Nikkei Review, Mazda will introduce a number of diesel models into the United States next year.

Sources claim that the automaker will soon offer two diesels to U.S. customers and hopes to sell about 50,000 units annually. Mazda’s decision comes after a lengthy process to fine-tune the engines to meet environmental regulations in the United States and despite other brands backing away from offering diesels in the U.S.

Initially, a diesel variant of the all-new 2017 CX-5 SUV that was revealed today at the LA Auto Show will be introduced to the US market, and soon after, a diesel Mazda6 will hit dealers as well. Both cars are believed to feature the brand’s SKYACTIV-D 2.2-liter four-cylinder oil burner.

It is reported that Mazda still sees demand for diesel vehicles in the U.S. and that it will detail the plan at this week’s Los Angeles Auto Show.
