When I looked at Mazda's, l expected there to be some satellite technology involved somewhere, but that doesn't appear to be the case--at least not that I have found.

Perhaps my belief is erroneous, but in that case it seems a bit misleading to me.

From what I understand, it's a higher HP and higher compression GDI like the Focus.

The trans is a quick shifting torque converter unit. The 6 speed is a higher ratio manual.
