  2. What is the better fuel for Skyactive engine (E20 or E10)?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion

  10. ETA on Skyactiv 2 Mazda 3?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    From what I've read around, it looks like Mazda plans to first implement the new Skyactiv 2 engines in the 3. I haven't found a consensus on when this might happen, though.
