The company is keeping further details a secret for now, but promises that more details about the U.S. market vehicle will be released closer to its arrival on showroom floors this fall. Transmission details and information about the technology packaged with the car are forthcoming, but you can almost certainly bet that the “SkyActiv-D” diesel engine won’t make it to North American showrooms.
Mazda still says it is working a way to bring its diesel engine to the U.S. in its Mazda6 flagship sedan, but so far any news indicating positive progress has yet to surface.
