In terms of drivetrain system, SKYACTIV-D diesel power unit is the chosen one for the new CX-3 machine. It was heavily revised and now covers the latest EURO 6d-Temp standard, including the real-drive emission test. Furthermore, it features lower combustion temperature that ensures lower NOXraw emissions. It is achieved by adding a special NOx storage catalyst that reduces the remaining nitrogen oxide components. Sweet.
