Hello,

Is anyone familiar with this Mazda 3 Hatchback engine? Interested in the new 2017 Mazda 3 HB, but the only engine available in my country is the 1.6L MZR 4-speed AT and not the Skyactiv one.

Is it really worth looking into this? :|

Can anyone with this type of engine share their experience?

I think that depends on what your options are and what is important in a car for you.

Besides the obvious things you'll see, you'll get the excellent handling that these cars have become known for.

Downside, the 1.6L isn't going to be fast....probably pretty slow. I'd imagine that fuel economy won't be that great using a 4 gear auto and losing skyactiv won't help either.

Does this matter to you? Is the competition offering something that better suits what you want?

This is how I choose a new car. I don't have any brand loyalty what so ever and I don't see why I should. I simply do some research and decide what best suits my needs and wants. Last car was a Hyundai, Toyota before that. This time around the Mazda was the best pick for me by far. Next time might be a Subaru, who knows
