LODI, N.J., Dec. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- At a time when many manufacturers had committed to the development of costly hybrid powertrains, Mazda remained firm in its conviction that advanced engineering could drastically improve upon the combustion engine.
The fruit of that conviction is seen clearly when SkyActiv Mazda vehicles are compared with high-performing competitors. Mazda is often evaluated in side-by-side comparisons with automakers such as Subaru, Honda and Nissan. For the purpose of displaying the substantial performance advantage Mazda has over its competitors, Mazda of Lodi has drawn a comparison between the 2014 Mazda3 and 2014 Subaru Impreza. With respect to initial cost, engine power and fuel economy, the 2014 Mazda3 proves to be the more able and more valuable vehicle.
The comprehensive improvements offered by SkyActiv engine technology allow the 2014 Mazda3 to attain a greater level of engine output and efficiency than the 2014 Subaru Impreza. By engineering ways to reduce weight and energy waste, Mazda3 is able to travel farther and produce more power, all with regular gasoline.
Whereas the 2014 Subaru Impreza returns 36 highway mpg with 148 horsepower and 145 foot-pounds of torque, the 2014 Mazda3 can deliver 155 horsepower and 150 foot-pounds of torque at 41 highway mpg. The fact that Mazda3 saves drivers close to $1,000 on the initial sticker cost evidences its value as well.
Northern New Jersey residents interested in the benefits of SkyActiv technology can receive a first-hand demonstration at Mazda of Lodi. Mazda of Lodi maintains a large stock of new Mazda models, including the 2014 Mazda3. Call 973-594-1700 for more information or browse the dealer's online inventory at www.mazdaoflodi.com.
