Default 2014 Mazda3 Diesel Rumored

With a focus on its core products, Mazda is examining the possibility of adding diesel powertrains to numerous high-volume models in the US while dropping some low-volume sellers entirely.

According to some sources, the next-generation Mazda2 sub-compact might not make its way to our shores. Sales of the car last year totaled just under 14,000 units. By comparison, the Ford Fiesta sub-compact, which shares the same platform, totaled 70,000 sales.

The redesigned 2014 Mazda3 will ride on an all-new platform, weighing 220 lbs less than the current car and use the brandís new Kodo design language. Along with the current 2.0-liter SkyActiv engine, a more powerful 2.5-liter unit will be added, while the possibility of a diesel powertrain, making as much as 170-hp and 300 lb-ft of torque is rumored.

The same 2.5-liter gas engine is planned for the CX-5 as well, while itís also likely to see use of the SkyActiv-D diesel engine as well. Both the 2.5L and the diesel will make their first appearance in the 2014 Mazda6.
