For Mazda, imagination has always been the voice of daring. New technologies are only achieved by those who challenge the existing.

Our engineers completely re-imagined the piston at the heart of an engine.

They wanted to create a piston that was lighter and smaller than previous generations. A piston that developed less friction and allowed for more energy to be created while using less fuel. This would enable the engine to perform much more efficiently.

They successfully designed a cavity in the centre that allowed the combustion flame to grow without interference. The clever idea opened up a new world of increased torque and improved fuel efficiency.
