Each year, Popular Science Magazine selects a few of the best products as part of its "Best of What's New" awards. The auto category was loaded with some of the top creations from the 2013 calendar year, including the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, the Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid and the BMW I3. Another vehicle that received accolades was the 2014 Mazda6.
The vehicle stood apart from its peers thanks to two major features: i-ELoop braking and a Skyactiv-D engine. This combination of efficient operations and diesel fuel provides plenty of savings for drivers.
"Mazda is honored to be included in Popular Science Magazine's annual Best of What's New Awards," said Jim O'Sullivan, president and CEO of Mazda North American Operations. "From an engineering standpoint, to have the 2014 Mazda6 with Skyactiv Technology be recognized by Popular Science is a distinction that proves you don't need to be the most expensive vehicle on the road to feature premium technology and advanced engineering."
Despite the benefits of diesel fuel, drivers still have to ensure their vehicles are receiving proper scheduled maintenance. New cars may run well, but their lives can be extended by investing in the right types of repairs.
