Before 2020, Mazda 4. Because of the pressure which is the result of an adjustment which is then converted into a rotating motion on the rotor which makes the axis move. This rotary machine is very compact and lightweight. So it was chosen by Mazda to be implanted in the Mazda RX-7 and Mazda RX-8.
However. In 2012 Mazda stopped the development and use of rotary engines in its automotive products due to increasingly stringent emission standards in many countries. Since products using rotary engines are no longer produced. Mazda relies on Skyactiv technology.
In terms of design. Formerly Mazda which favored the use of rotary engines only applied a simple design. Then since the release of the Mazda CX-5 in 2011. People’s assessment of the design carried by Mazda has changed dramatically.

The emergence of 2020 Mazda 4 or Mazda CX-4 bridges the series before and after. Namely Mazda CX-3 and Mazda CX-5. Which unfortunately is not distributed worldwide.
