If you’re in the market for a new Mazda near Glendale, CA, Star Mazda should be your dealership of choice. Not only do we offer a wide selection of vehicles, but our team of auto professionals will also walk you step by step through the car buying process.

One of the crucial factors of buying a new car is finding out what engine type works best for you. There are three different engine types out there: four-cylinder, V6, and V8. Each engine type specializes in a particular kind of driving, and as a result, no one engine type is better than all the rest. Our staff always informs our customers that the best engine type depends on your unique automotive needs, and what you expect for your car to be able to do.

The number corresponding to the engine type is based on the number of cylinders in the engine. The more cylinders in an engine, the more horsepower and torque the engine is likely to deliver. At the same time, the more cylinders in your engine, the more fuel you’ll need to power these cylinders. As a result, cars with V6 and V8 engines typically tend to have a lower MPG rating when compared to vehicles with optimized four-cylinder engines.

Our new Mazda vehicles come equipped with efficient yet powerful, four-cylinder engines. Each is designed with SKYACTIV®-G technology, an innovation exclusive to Mazda. Designed with higher compression ratios than conventional engines, Mazda powertrains prioritize efficiency without sacrificing power.

Additional systems outfitted with Mazda engines include SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control, which helps smooth out every ride, along with i-ACTIV AWD®.

If you’re still unsure of what engine type is right for you the team of auto professionals in our Mazda service center can help you find the right fit. No matter what kind of driving you do, we’ve got you covered at Star Mazda.
