Test drive Mazda 3 Skyactiv-X AWD: when diesel and gasoline are not ruled out

12-дек, 13;32 admin 1222

The Mazda 3 Skyactiv-X was the model with which the new Japanese engine debuted, which combines the advantages of diesel engines with gasoline engines. Fate has made, however, that the first model I drove with the new engine is the new CX-30 compact SUV, a car that very cleverly combines the practical spirit of a family car with a rebellious sport. Under the hood of the CX-30, however, the Skyactiv-X engine was not fully honed while still in the preliminary preparation phase, although first impressions were very encouraging.
 
Thanks to its more advanced development cycle, the Mazda 3 was the first commercially available model with the new motorization, and the editors were among the first to test it in Sofia in a version that it reaches customers. Since some problems appeared during the first test drive (the ECM went into failure mode), we decided to postpone the publication of this test until we can get to know the new Skyactiv-X engine better, in a more relaxed test drive. on the roads of our country. Meanwhile, the car benefited from a recall in a software update service, so we had a much more mature version of Skyactiv-X technology. Before we present your driving experience, it's good to see, however, what Skyactiv-X stands for and how the new technology works.


Automakers have long sought to transfer the higher energy efficiency of diesel engines to the gasoline engine. Some are close enough to make this move, even if “almost” means they are “far away.” In short, many refused, but Mazda continued to research and found the key to controlling the gasoline combustion cycle in the event of a compression ignited.http://fiatforum.lv/http://fiatforum.lv/
