The Mazda 3 is more than a pretty face

Top Gear (UK) - - THE TEN -

OK, it doesn’t have the stance of Mazda’s ex­cep­tion­ally hand­some Kai con­cept but the new Mazda 3 is still a looker. Is it just us, or is there a whiff of Alfa to it? Any­way, let’s talk about Mazda’s new Spark Con­trolled Com­pres­sion Ig­ni­tion Sky­Ac­tiv-X engine. Util­is­ing spark plugs for con­ven­tional petrol engine-style com­bus­tion, it can then switch to diesel-style com­pres­sion ig­ni­tion if needs be. Mean­ing you should get the per­for­mance of a petrol but the econ­omy of a diesel. Turns out it’s not just EVs that can move the game on.
