2019 Mazda Cx-5 Signature Awd Diesel Unveiled In New York

2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature AWD diesel unveiled in New York

It seems like we've been waiting forever, but the wait is finally over. Mazda has finally launched a diesel version of the CX-5 for the U.S. market, unveiled at the 2019 New York International Auto Show. Specifically, the 2.2-liter Skyactiv-D turbo-diesel engine will be offered in the higher-end CX-5 Signature AWD, part of what Mazda calls its "path to premium," as the company continues to set its sights on some of the more expensive competition.

The Skyactiv-D 2.2 makes use of a sequential twin turbocharger that employs a smaller turbocharger first at low rpm for quick throttle response, after which a valve opens to spool up a larger turbocharger at higher rpm. Mazda says this provides "smooth and linear response from low to high engine speeds, and greatly increases low- and high-end torque." Mazda estimates the output of the engine to be 168 horsepower at 4,000 rpm and 290 pound-feet of torque from a low 2,000 rpm. The engine has a rev limit of 5,500 rpm.

Nissan Imq Unveiled In Geneva To Show Us Where Crossover Design Is Headed

Nissan IMQ unveiled in Geneva to show us where crossover design is headed

Nissan has been busy with its electrified vehicles of late. Its cadence for revealing new production and show cars has been steady since the launch of the current-gen Leaf. Just in the past few months, we've seen the new Leaf Nismo RC race car and the IMs concept, and we've already driven the new, long-range Leaf Plus. Hot on the heels of all of that, Nissan is giving us yet another electrified vehicle, unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, called the IMQ crossover concept.

The IMQ is the third concept to bear the "IM" initials of Nissan's Intelligent Mobility campaign, following the IMx crossover and the aforementioned IMs. Unlike the last two, which were 100 percent electric, the IMQ is a series hybrid using Nissan's e-Power technology. All four wheels are driven solely by electric motors, providing a total of 335 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. Instead of plugging the IMQ in, though, it uses a 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine as a generator to charge the battery.
