It's a concise excerpt that embodies the automakers' succinct slogan, being that very few other sub-$25,000 cars provide near as much Zoom Zoom for the buck as the Mazda 3. 2012 was the first year that Mazda offered up the fuel-sipping, high-compression SkyActiv engine. The 2.0-litre mill produced 155 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque, and sent power to the front wheels via a choice of two SkyActiv transmissions developed exclusively for the car, a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic. There was also an optional 2.5-liter DOHC 16-valve power-plant that was a bit punchier and produced 167 ponies.

With 2016 models now hitting the streets like the Mazda CX-5, Mazda 6 and the Mazda 3, which is popular in Colombia and much of South America as well as Europe, K&N offers a performance improvement with the effortless act of a K&N high flow air filter upgrade. By simply upgrading the OE air filter with a K&N 33-2480 reusable air filter, you can instantly improve the overall performance of both engines, while also ensuring excellent air filtration and engine protection.
