I think Mazda is making a terrible mistake offering the diesel in the Signature trim level. They are trying to market it to a customer who I do not believe exists. Generally speaking, frugal customers are not the ones willing to put almost $50k on a car. Instead, they would rather shop at the lower end of the spectrum. I think they are mixing up people who will put down large sums for the likes of a Tesla. These people are not particularly frugal, but tend to be techno-savvy above all else. Mazda should offer the diesel in its own trim (a cross between Sport and Touring, perhaps) and charge around $28k and see what happens. While I'm actually hoping for the best (I'd buy one, to be honest), I also hope that Mazda knows that if this fails...and in all likelihood it will...they will help to permanently destroy the diesel market in the the US, once and for all.

Ad Agendum, Semper Perati
