Mazda’s Skyactiv-X Probably Isn’t Making It To The U.S. At This Point

Deliveries of Mazdas with its Skyactiv-X engine—the tame but incredibly fuel-efficient engine that’s been in the works for years—began late last year in Europe, after Mazda had previously said that’s about when it might come to the U.S., too.
