Mazda is an engineering giant, IMO....I was disappointed that Ford sold their share back to Mazda because I liked Ford having access to their engineering.

Hard to say at this time. If the engine does get that extra fuel economy they predict plus being reliable, then chances are very good. A 30% gain in fuel economy is nothing to sneeze at.

No. It has its place but a compromise is always a compromise...

Will it replace diesels in passenger cars? Probably. Diesel is dead in that regard.

In HD trucks? No way.

Does it matter? The Mazda SkyActiv HCCI is a pretty good advance for the internal combustion engine. If they can take a 30mpg engine and get almost 40mpg with this technology, then why not? Mazda SkyActiv engines have very good reliability compared to some other manufacturers that have had issues. There is an active thread on BITOG on the Ford EcoBoost 2.7's that are having problems. The new Honda 1.5 TGDI engine has fuel dilution issues.

This new engine of Mazda will also be going into some Toyota cars in the upcoming future now that Mazda and Toyota are linked together.

I'm going to guess these engines will NOT have the lifespan of traditional spark ignited gas engines and wont tolerate
much leakdown loss before needing overhauled. This will truly be an engine will the oil used will matter for long term longevity.

Think mean time between rebuilds was a downside of some company's rotary engines ...

I am a Mazda fan and presently drive a SkyActiv CX5, However; I remember the Mazda Diesel and the teething issues it has and, maybe till has had for years. I do hope Mazda doesn't push this HCCI out to the public too quick and loose their fan base. Ed

HCCI/electric hybrids could attain some serious fuel economy while putting out decent power levels, not to mention ultra low emissions. 75 mpg?

I'd be surprised if it lives up to the hype. I can see even the loss of a few percentage points of compression being a real problem on this engine.
Wouldn't the pistons / ring lands have to be at least as tough as a true Diesel to survive in what is essentially a compression ignition gasoline engine? We're talking some heavy internal parts for a "gas" engine.

Mazda has gotten better since they've started to build "normal" piston engine cars in recent decades, but they've had some real engineering flops.
If you like rotary engines, then fine. Hardly anyone else does like them though and they were real POS's in the 70's.

Switzerland just announced it will no longer register any more Porsche Cayennes with the diesel motor. This is a direct result of the diesel emissions scandal.

Germany has said that the diesel motor's days are numbered.

France and the UK have said that the internal combustion motor's days are numbered, and you can bet the first type to die will be diesel passenger car motors.

Diesel passenger cars have barely began to get traction in North America before being eyed suspiciously by regulators.

The Mazda motor won't help matters, but it's just another nail in the coffin.
