Mini Citysurfer concept takes the Brit brand into two-wheeler territory

Mazda: turbochargers a 'costly' solution to efficiency

Mazda says its future range of Skyactiv engines are better suited to the company’s needs as naturally aspirated variants, rather than seeking turbochargers for efficiency and additional power output. Mazda has claimed that its next-generation of Skyactiv engines will deliver a further 30 percent fuel efficiency gain without the need for turbocharging as the company seeks to find the ‘perfect’ and leanest naturally aspirated engine.
