No less than £ 23,555 on the road is the starting price for the 2019 Mazda 3 with the industry’s first engine called SkyActiv-X, an engine that takes advantage of compression-ignition to deliver 180 horsepower and speed. The highest compression ever observed in a production gasoline engine. With the SkyActiv-X, the Mazda3 emits 96 grams of CO2 per kilometer, which corresponds to 52.3 miles per gallon in the combined driving cycle.
Spark-controlled compression ignition is the technology that separates the SkyActiv-X from the SkyActiv-G and other petrol engines. Also included is the 24-volt Mazda M hybrid soft hybrid, which reuses the kinetic energy recovered during braking. The Mazda3 will be offered with i-Activ all-wheel drive in the UK as long as you are willing to pay for the GT Sport Tech version.
The sedan and sedan are equipped with “a never-before-seen standard trim”, according to Mazda, including a windshield that projects a color screen with traffic sign recognition, LED headlights and radar cruise control. The equipment variant ever offered is equipped with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and satellite navigation, among other things.
Black leather seats are standard on the GT Sport, while the GT Sport Tech can achieve a 360 degree camera system and driver monitoring system. Burgundy leather upholstery is available for £ 200 on both sedan trim levels, while the sedan may have stone leather upholstery.
“I am very pleased with the arrival of the Skyactiv-X engine. It’s another example of defiant powertrain innovation, “said CEO Jeremy Thomson.” Skyactiv-X offers our customers a unique combination of fuel economy, low emissions and gasoline engine performance, and gives the new Mazda3 a unique selling point.
Another revolutionary engine is the Infiniti and Nissan VC turbo. However, this powertrain is only found on front-wheel drive vehicles such as the QX50 crossover and the Altima sedan. VC stands for Variable Compression, a technology that results in a compression ratio of 8: 1 for high performance to 14: 1 for high efficiency.
