Petrol Engine Of The Year –Mazda Skyactiv 2.0L

The 2-litre, DOHC, 16-valve inline 4 petrol is a formula for any successful mainstream engine, but Mazda has shown that there’s so much more that can be done to make it better.

The new 2-litre Skyactiv-G shows Mazda’s true engineering mastery – no turbos, no downsizing, no need for an overly complicated gearbox to make it more efficient. On paper, it looks the same as its peers, but on the field, it is on another level.
