    Skyactiv is not really new. Its been in use for a couple of years already. In fact it was a winner as one of Ward's 10 Best Engines for 2012. Although it was the 2.0L variant of the Mazda3 that won the award, the performance/reliability of the 1.5L shouldnt be far from the 2.0L.

    If u want to be practical, nothing beats Mazda's yojin3. Imagine 3 yrs free PMS. Laking bagay nun.

    Its the mentality of saying that toyota is the most reliable brand when in fact its one of the auto manufacturers with the largest auto recalls.

    People can bash Toyota all they want but they can't deny that Toyota is still number one in many markets including this country. If a buyer wants to be practical and most are, they would choose a Toyota or Honda. Just look at 2014 U.S. sales charts, Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic are at the top, Mazda 3 is even lower than Hyundai Elantra despite all the rave and glowing reviews, consumers still want to be practical.

    FYI, will also choose the Mazda 3 over the Altis. Even considering current vehicle for a Mazda 3 but will wait for specs of Mazda 2.

    I dont think that most number of sales equates to being practical. I just think Toyota & Honda are very good in selling cars, while the marketing people of Mazda sucks. I dont hate toyota, we even have 2 toyotas at home. I just think its wrong for people to buy/choose cars by basing it on the brand alone.

    It just happens that the common Filipino consumer has brand loyalty and has a hard time getting over previous notions/observations/opinions. Nissan and Mazda is still suffering from its old outlook. Korean brands are still tagged as unreliable. Some still think VW only applies to the venerable Beetle even though it has such a wide range of models (and brands). Even some have no idea that all gasoline sold by the big suppliers are unleaded.
