Kind of dissapointing, considering diesels usually shine on the highway and aren't supposed to be more efficient in the city. But considering the sheer amount of torque the oil-burner makes, that would still be my choice - just not in the CX-5. 31MPG is extremely unimpressive for 185HP. My 528i, which has 240HP/221ft/lb of torque, weighs anywhere from 500-700lb more than the CX-5, and uses an engine that was new in 2006 gets a solid 32MPG on the highway. The 2015 Mazda 6 on the other hand gets 26/37MPG which is significantly better than the CX-5 despite not weighing much less, making it an excellent candidate for the oil burner.
