We don’t always think about what type of gas our car takes. For most of us, we just use regular unleaded. However, there’s a case to be made for going diesel. Here at Hall Mazda Virginia Beach, we offer select Mazda diesel models like the 2019 Mazda CX-5. While over the last several decades, Americans have largely stayed away from diesel engines, the perception is changing.

Diesel engines no longer only produce loud and slow cars; they’re now more fuel-efficient and better equipped to handle the needs of the modern driver. While hybrid vehicles are undoubtedly making waves, there’s still a case to be made for diesel engines, especially when it comes to fuel economy. Unlike conventional gasoline engines, diesel-based engines can improve gas mileage by up to 20 percent. Furthermore, you feel the acceleration more in a diesel engine.

Recently, Mazda automakers went the diesel route with the 2019 Mazda CX-5 Diesel, available at our Mazda dealership serving Norfolk, VA. Overall, the diesel variant of this Mazda SUV gets better gas mileage than its gasoline counterpart and comes with an improved, torque-rich engine.

The diesel engine found in the Mazda CX-5 is a 2.2-liter SKYACTIV®-D twin-turbocharged I4 engine that produces 168 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque. For those looking to get the most out of their towing power, the diesel variant boasts a tow rating of 3,500 lb, which is a 1,500-lb increase over the gasoline models.
