2013 Mazda3 Review Part 2

2013 Mazda3
Engine 2013 Mazda3 *Engine 2013 Mazda3

As soon as I opened the hood of the car I pointed to the bright blue section and told DH LOOK!! A cup holder!! (Yes, I think I'm funny too... DH rolled his eyes.... still looks like a cup holder!) 

Seriously, have you ever seen a pretty engine?  Nope, me either. 

Mazda3 has SKYACTIV Technology. So what does that mean? SKYACTIV is an engineering marvel that produces more low/mid-range torque and less emissions while consuming less fuel. 
  • SKYACTIV-G 155-hp‡, 2.0L DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine with variable valve timing
  • SKYACTIV-MT 6-speed manual transmission

Check out part 1 of my Mazda3 review.  Check back for more of my review of the Mazda3.

Disclosure I received a complimentary week driving the Mazda3 Grand Touring for the purpose of my review. (They aren't letting me keep this one either I checked) No other compensation was provided. The opinions are mine and 100% honest. I have not been influenced in any way

    Lucky you, a week driving a new car to review! I like Mazdas, it was the first car I ever drove

  2. I've never seen a pretty engine. But that one is clean!

  3. It looks like a cupholder to me too! But even if they haven't included a place for mechanics to rest their waterbottles, it sounds like it's very well engineered. Yay for fewer emissions.

  4. Looks like a Mc Cafee or Starbucks warmer to me! LOL It must be hard to go back to your old car after test driving these babies. Hope you have a fun week!
