Auto Express - - News -

MAZDA’S new com­pres­sion-ig­ni­tion Sky­ac­tiv-x petrol en­gines will offer a “re­al­is­tic” max­i­mum out­put of 190bhp, ac­cord­ing to pow­er­train boss Mit­suo Hit­omi.

The 2.0-litre unit will make its de­but in the next Mazda 3, pre­viewed by the KAI con­cept (above).

Hit­omi-san said Mazda “won’t be us­ing tur­bos” with this tech, and cited hy­brid elec­tri­fi­ca­tion as the best way to fur­ther boost per­for­mance and ef­fi­ciency.
