If you ask any motorist what is his/her biggest daily expense, he will probably say it's buying petrol in a climate where prices increase faster than the value at which the car depreciates. Some have devised creative ways to save petrol but to no avail.

But two local car dealers - Executive Motors, agents for Mazda, and Key Motors, agents for Hyundai brands, are pleased to introduce the Hyundai 'Blue' technology and Mazda 'Skyactiv' technology, both having been credited with outstanding achievements.

Mazda was the first company in the world to mass produce engines that compress the air-fuel mixture in the cylinders to an extraordinary degree, squeezing far more energy from every drop of fuel.

With their compression ratio of 14:1, unparalleled among mass production engines, Skyactiv engines bring you both sheer driving pleasure and outstanding fuel economy. Mazda took their 'Skyactiv' technology to the level of including their transmission, body and chassis.

The Hyundai Accent is engineered to deliver performance and quality. It features an engine that generates plenty of power for its class and provides an EPA-estimated 38 MPG Hwy. And on the quality front, the 2014 Accent was named the 'Highest Ranked Small Car in Initial Quality' by J.D. Power.


Blue pack


Blue - the colour of driving and the Hyundai Accent is as appealing under the hood as it is above. Chief among the attractions is Blue Pack, a fuel efficiency package which delivers more ECO-efficient driving. An alternator management system (AMS) controls the power supply to the battery, putting less strain on the engine.

Maximising energy regeneration when decelerating and idling, the benefits come to the fore in start/stop urban traffic, since both fuel consumption and emissions are minimised. Not only that, but acceleration performance is also enhanced, through reduced power delivery to the alternator when picking up speed.
