2018 Mazda 6: Diesel Ignition Without The Engine

By  | 

Unlike the standard petrol engine, Diesel engines uses compression to ignite the fuel. It is believed that the 2016 Mazda 6 might come with an engine that uses the same method but you won’t be pouring in diesel fuel.

Nikkei reported that Mazda might be working on a new engine that uses HCCI process to ignite the engine. The new engine is said to have better fuel economy and that Mazda will be using in in their next gen Skyactiv powered models.

We do not know when it will happen but there are reports saying that we might see it in 2018 although others think that Mazda will need a few more years to perfect it. While we are all for saving on fuel cost, some people are also worried that the new engine won’t be as reliable as the standard engine and that they will end up with more issues when it arrives.

It is still too earlier to predict what will happen but we know that Mercedes, GM, and Volkswagen all gave up on it in the past.
