2019 Subaru Ascent teased again

The upcoming 2019 Subaru Ascent three-row SUV has been teased again, ahead of its debut at the Los Angeles motor show next week. Pitched as the "first full three-row SUV from Subaru", the Ascent will take on the likes of the Mazda CX-9, Nissan Pathfinder, Toyota Highlander (Kluger) and Volkswagen Atlas - in the US, at least. Little else was revealed with the new teaser snap other than the seating configuration, which in this case is a 2+2+3 seven-seat layout.

Mazda sticking with diesels

Mazda, the Japanese brand that has bet its powertrain future on the continuation of the internal combustion engine for the medium to long-term, has also acknowledged that work on its SkyActiv D turbo-diesel engines will continue for years to come. Despite having announced and soon set to launch a range of new compression-ignition SkyActiv X engines, which take the best of petrol and diesel into account, Mazda says there is still a place for diesel engines in its line-up.
