Mazda already annouced that they will put the 2.2 tdi engine in a few of their newer vehicles and I think CX-5 will be one of them. The engine is said to possess 310 lb/ft torque while getting superb mpg. I test drove the regular CX-5 and was amazed at the superb steering feel and handling. The interior looked cheap and the headrest was tilted too much forward though.

I canceled my X1 order after much consideration. I think the car is mainly too small for my use while the X3 does not have 2WD...
