Mazda is currently in the process of working with a new ignition in order to improve the fuel efficiency of its gasoline engines by 50 percent. According to AutoGuide, the current efficiency of Mazda’s gasoline engines is a “healthy 40 percent.” Mazda hopes to improve that to 60 percent by 2020.
In order to do this, Mazda is developing its homogenous charge compression ignition (HCCI) technology to make their gasoline engines operate more like a diesel engine. According to AutoGuide, “The technology will require raising the compression ration from about 14.0:1 to 18.0:1 with a precise control of the combustion chamber in order to avoid engine knock.” The hope is to combine the clean emissions of a gasoline engine with the fuel economy of a diesel engine.
Mazda has an ongoing commitment to creating high-quality vehicles and environmental-friendliness. Check out our current Mazda inventory.
Chevrolet has revealed a lighter and stiffer Camaro Convertible with the new 2016 model. According to USA Today, the sporty car has “an electro-hydraulic power roof system (which) features multilayer construction designed for comfortable, quiet driving in all seasons.”
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible has a similar silhouette to the Camaro coupe. Todd Christensen, Camaro’s marketing manager, said “The 2016 Camaro coupe will set the benchmark for the segment in terms of technology, performance and design. Adding the most sophisticated top in the segment brings another level of refinement.”
Camaro’s chief engineer, Al Oppenheiser, said that Camaros were “developed to incorporate a convertible with uncompromised driving dynamics.” They wanted to provide drivers with a smooth and quiet ride not typically found in other four-seat convertibles.
The Camaro Convertible will come with two trim levels, six powertrain combinations and the option of a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. The exterior is sleek and contributes to better handling, aerodynamics and fuel efficiency.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible will go on sale early next year. In the meantime, check out our Chevrolet Camaro inventory.

For the second year in a row, the Mazda3 has been voted the number one coolest car under $18,000 by Kelley Blue Book. According to The News Wheel, the Mazda3 has actually been on the list every year since it was released in 2003, “giving it an impressive 12-year cool streak.”
Kelley Blue Book rates cars under $18,000 based on two factors. The first is how fun it is to drive the car, and the second is how fun it is to own the car.
The Mazda3 features Mazda’s SkyActiv Technology, Mazda Connect for infotainment, i-Activsense for safety and “KODO—Soul of Motion” with i-ELOOP for fuel economy. It is one of the most fuel-efficient cars in its class with an EPA-estimated 30 mpg city and 41 mpg highway.
