Thoughts on mazda 3 skyactiv X
I tested the corolla hybrid and even i found it really nice in many aspects it didn’t convince me.
i missed the manual gearbox a lot.
Now im looking the mazda 3 skyactiv X.
2.0 176hp naturally aspirated manual gearbox and everyone reports great fuel economy even in city.
i drive a lot in the city and also highway and besides that i love how this mazda looks. Im gonna test it too.
Anybody here with any experience or thoughts?

No such thing exits! That car is SUPERCHARGED and has a compression ratio of over 16:1.
I don't know if they blow up like the G-Turbo but with a supercharger and 16.3:1 - they probably will!
If you want a Mazda, get a SkyActive-G NON-turbo, NON-cylinder deactivated.
You're welcome to visit NHTSA and look at the complaints filed on the new Mazda 3's engine,
These 'prime examples of modern engineering' burn a quart of oil every 1k miles even when new. 🤣
A v o i d if you value your money.
My coworker has one, he likes it and gets great mpg. It isnt a race car and isnt all that fancy inside, but for a city car it'll be nice and easy to drive too. Manual is always more fun IMO. I say go for it. Just get the right engine option stated above
