The new model Mazda 3 for 2019 will be using the Skyactiv-G engine. So not this year for the Skyactiv-X.

Went mazda today
New Mazda 3 is coming into Msia this July with 1.5cc NA 130k++ 2.0cc NA 150k
But both varients are using current skyactive G engine as skyactive X requires higher Ron than Ron97

With these prices the Mazda 3 will be a tough sell. I think Bermaz doesn't intend to bring in the Skyactiv-X or it will have to be priced out of the market. But they can stop bullshitting that the Skyactiv-X engine requires higher RON.

Seriously 1.5cc NA for C segment? 🤔

Must be specially for Malaysian market. A B-segment engine in a C-segment car at C-segment price. If you want a C-segment engine it goes to D-segment price.

I went a Mazda program on Sunday. They said the Skyactive-X required higher fuel grade level which is Malaysia doesn't and it will be ready in 2 mths times.

You mean RON 97 is not enough? This means it can't be released in U.S. either as premium grade is 94. In Europe and Australia the premium grade is 98 which is hardly any different from 97. So waht grade does it need?

Last time i read about Skyactiv X, it was designed for lower ron fuel.

The above article indicates that Bermaz is not giving us the real reason for not bringing in the Skyactiv-X engine. The engine is designed for Ron 91 minimum and there is nothing mentioned about other fuel quality requirement. Bermaz's real reason may be there is no viable price slot for the Mazda 3 Skyactiv-X after pricing the 2.0L model at RM150K.
