Truth be told, it would be far less costly and much more profitable if they just used the regular gasoline turbo motor from the CX-9/Mazda 6 since it gets the same amount of torque with more hp with just a small hit to the city fuel economy. And since it can be mated to AWD in the CX-9, they could offer both fwd and awd for the CX-5 for minimal cost.
