I can only assume it’s partly gearing.

Choked to death by emissions bullshit.

I read somewhere that Mazda was also in trouble for something emissions related recently. However, it was something along the lines of accuracy rather than straight up deception like with VW. Whatever Mazda did made them look bad in some ways.

Could have been a Hyundai type of issue where they overstated MPG.

If those are the real numbers, I don't know why anyone would ever opt for the diesel - that's why folks opt for diesel (either subsidized fuel (many parts of Europe) or a 20% mileage boost over gas equivalent)

I’m shocked the numbers are that bad. Especially if they are bringing a turbo to the gas engine too. I could see where the diesel provides better performance at no mpg penalty and that being the selling point. But not with a 2.5t also available.

The European Nissan Qashqai (roughly the size of a CX-5), with a 1.6l diesel (130 HP, 236 lb ft torque), gets 50 MPG.
