Halloween might still be more than a month away, but if Christmas can start getting attention over Thanksgiving, we thought the most fun holiday of the year could get a head start too.

How is Mazda turbocharging technology different?

A turbocharger has long been associated with high-performance cars. By increasing the amount of air and fuel that can be burned by an engine allows for a noticeable increase in horsepower and torque. A lot of automakers, including Mazda, have been adapting this technology to smaller and more efficient engines. This has allowed modern vehicles to not only produce more power but also do so without compromising fuel efficiency.
