    Not yet. Maybe in 2012. The SkyActive Mazda2 was just launched in Japan a few months ago. It'll be a while before we get them.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    hindi pa, and its interesting to note that USDM models don't have the i-Stop function. which saves more fuel esp. in high traffic areas.... kasi ang reason nila eh it doesn't do much to improve EPA ratings based on 2008 standard.....JDM versions have it, probably the European versions would also have it.....

    i've asked Mazda dealership SA who had some display in Market Market a few months back, he did confirm the 2nd. Gen Mazda3 would indeed come 2012 to Philippines and entirely skipping the port injected model. and would just come with the3 SkyActiv engine.....Yay!

    bossing parakito,

    sir, is that the reason why they are now selling their old mazda 3's from 2006 up to 2009 models at low prices? are they also in the know about the upcoming new tech by mazda next yr?

    spook..

    to Spookles2006,
    i'm sure may kinalaman 'yun dun, as they need to deplete inventory
    to acceptable levels before changing over to the new model...
    and i've only spoke to one Sales agent, and he seems to know about
    the next gen will have SkyActiv technologies...

    to MrBones,
    sorry no idea po, sa Japan and US eh kalalabas pa lang...
    based purely on my speculation would take a months pa siguro...
