Diesel Preview: Five New Diesel Models Coming to America

For what seems like forever, North America has been left behind when it comes to diesel cars. Sure there are a few options, but nowhere near as many as our friends in Europe. In fact, according to the Automotive Industry Data Newsletter, 52% of all new car sales last year in Western Europe were diesel powered.

Diesel engines offer unique advantages, with plenty of torque making tiny power plants more useable in small cars, while making modest size engines a functional alternative to much larger gasoline ones in SUVs. Towing, after all, is not something hybrids are known for. Additionally, diesel engines can provide fuel economy closer to that of a hybrid, without any of the worries surrounding new technology; plus, there’s no battery pack compromising passenger or storage space.

With those advantages, not to mention a push by automakers to meet increasingly strict corporate average fuel economy standards, a slew of diesel models are set to arrive on our shores in the near future. If you’re considering the switch to diesel power, here are a few options you’ll soon be able to consider.

Mazda Revolution Ads Promotes New Skyactiv Tech – Videos

Mazda claims that the future of driving begins now with their Skyactiv Technology, and they’ll be running some new ads to support just that.

Dubbed “Revolution”, the new television commercial will reinforce that Mazda hasn’t lost sight of its “Zoom-Zoom” position in the marketplace just because they’ve been working on ways to improve fuel efficiency in its new vehicles.

Over the years, the Japanese automaker has been responsible for the creation of the ever-popular Miata and the iconic RX-8, alongside with rotary engines. They are also the only Asian car company to ever win the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans. And while most of us have Mazda embedded in our minds as a performance-oriented manufacturer, their new Skyactiv Technology looks to make vehicles more efficient through advanced engineering solutions.

Simply put, Mazda just wants to reiterate to the world that “If it’s not worth driving, it’s not worth building”.

Watch the extended and standard versions of the new Mazda Revolution ads after the break, and check out Mazda`s new Dr. Seuss themed ad.
