It is worth mentioning that Mazda also officially introduced the SKYACTIV-X engine of this year. The engine has Mazda's unique compression ignition technology, which can achieve seamless switching between spark ignition and compression ignition. Its maximum power can reach 180 horsepower, and the peak torque is 224 Nm, which has exceeded the 1.5T Civic.

According to the plan, the SKYACTIV-X engine will be the first to be mounted on the 2021 Mazda 3 Angkesela and Mazda CX-30 models.
