Review: 2019 Mazda CX-5D Signature – Part 1

Mazda for as long as I have reviewed their vehicles has been promising a diesel powered vehicle. But for the longest while nothing has appeared. That changed this year with the introduction of the Mazda CX-5D Signature:

Now this looks just like any other CX-5 that you might see on the street as Mazda hasn’t changed the Kodo design language that makes this vehicle great to look at. The only hint that this is a diesel is this:

In other words, this vehicle doesn’t scream the fact that it is a diesel. Mazda has had the top end Signature trim level for the last year or so in the form of the CX-9, CX-5 and Mazda6. So it’s great that that the CX-5D has it as well. In fact, it’s the only way you can get this diesel engine.

My review of the 2019 Mazda CX-5D Signature is made up of five parts:

  • Exterior
  • Engine, transmission, handling, fuel economy, and driving comfort
  • Interior
  • Technology in the vehicle
  • Wrap up

The next part of this review will cover the engine, transmission and driving comfort. You can expect that I will spend a lot of time on diesel engine. Tune in tomorrow to find out what I have to say about that.
