Mazda has launched its revolutionary Skyactiv-X petrol engine in the All-New Mazda3. Customers can now pre-order the All-New Mazda3 Skyactiv-X, which is expected to reach Irish showrooms by the fourth quarter this year. Featuring Mazda’s unique Spark Plug Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI) technology, the 2.0 litre, four-cylinder Skyactiv-X engine is the world’s first commercial petrol unit to combine the spark ignition of a petrol engine with the compression ignition of a diesel.
Providing drivers with the free-revving performance of a gasoline engine and the superior response of a diesel, the All-New Mazda3 Skyactiv-X3 delivers 180 PS and 224 Nm of torque. The All-New Mazda3 Skyactiv-X Saloon achieved 96 g/km CO2 emissions and a fuel economy of 4.3 l/100km. The All-New Mazda3 Skyactiv-X3 is also equipped with Mazda M Hybrid technology, fitted as standard. The intelligent 24V mild-hybrid system minimises fuel consumption, increasing fuel economy and lowering emissions by recycling energy recovered during deceleration that powers an electric motor that assists the engine.
The All-New Mazda3 Skyactiv-X3 is available on both the hatchback and saloon models, with a choice of six-speed Skyactiv-MT manual or six-speed Skyactiv-Drive automatic transmissions. All-New Mazda3 Skyactiv-X WLTP fuel consumption: 4.6-9.3 l/100km; WLTP CO2 emissions: 122-157 g/km; NEDC fuel consumption: 3.9-6.6 l/100km; NEDC CO2 emissions: 96-125 g/km.
