Mazda3 will be receiving a new diesel engine in the UK, helping the Japanese manufacturer to extend its coverage. It is the new 1.5 litre SkyActive-D, a diesel engine delivering 105 hp and capable of emiting only 99 g/km. With 270 Nm of torque and 0-62 mph performance of 11.0 seconds, the new Mazda3 has a combined economy of 74.3 mpg and it is available in hatchback and Fastback body styles.

It is offered across all trim levels with prices starting at just £18,895 on-the-road, while ensuring even more customer choice, the hatchback version of the SkyActiv-D 1.5 can be specified with a six-speed SkyActiv-Drive automatic transmission.

The engine comes as standard with Mazda’s i-stop idle-stop system, which delivers the world’s fastest restarts on a diesel engine.

With peak torque of 270 Nm available between 1,600 and 2,500rpm, the high-pressure exhaust gas recirculation system is supplemented by a low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation system to further enhance engine response, while the water-cooled intercooler is integrated into the engine’s lightweight manifold.
