I personally would rather a turbo than any other car type.
I'm just not worried too much about the complexity. Diesels are often even more complex and I love them as well.
However, its totally subjective. I don't expect everyone to want to drive like me.
And again, I do like Mazdas handling. I don't think you can buy a bad mainstream car these days. They are all better than they used to be in their respective ways.

Mazda is doubling down on SkyActiv, making a 2.5L version for the Mazda6 (and other applications maybe?). Does that reduce the need for a SkyActiv diesel here? With the discontinuation of the Mazda2, will we see a sub-2L SkyActiv?
I do wonder what they'll do with the CX-9 and it's V6...also kind of wonder when the mazda5 will get a SkyActiv engine.

I'm sure there is less than 50% chance we'll see the Sky-diesel in the US. Many manufacturers have promised and failed to deliver on the same promise time and again.
Shame too, sounds like a real class leader.
Interesting to see what kind of numbers the Sky-2.5 puts down in the Mazda 6.

I'd like to see the 2.5L go into the CX-5 and the Mazda5. Especially the latter, it'll be a very viable people-mover.
