On the one hand, the top model is celebrating 3 mps its world premiere, on the other hand a new two-liter gasoline engine will be present with start-stop system of the openness.

Similar performance as the current mps

The sports variant of the second generation of the mazda 3 comes with engine technology, which has already preserved in the process. Because already there is a 2.3-liter turbo gasoline with the designation of disi, which indicates the direct injection. According to mazda, however, the engine is now designed for euro 5 and consumes fewer fuel than before. Exact specifications are still missing, but it is expected that it remains with 260 hp. The "old" mazda 3 thus achieves a highest speed 250 km / h and requires 6.1 seconds for the sprint to 100 km / h.

From siss will be i-stop

The second novelty turns to a broader audience. The second.0 mzr disi, which is also offered in mazda 3, is a smaller variant of the 2.3-liter gasoline. The new engine will replace the current two-liter petrol engine with 150 hp. He should consume for twelve percent less than the transaction model. This helps a start-stop automatic, which mazda has been a bit bulky as siss. In series use, it will heat i-stop, which should probably indicate a "smart" start-stop system. In fact, i-stop is a riched system, because it is based on the idea of starting the engine through a targeted tongue process. This reboot should take only 0.35 seconds in practice.
