    When the 2014 Mazda3 was unveiled on Wednesday, it was announced that it would come with two SKYACTIV-G engines for the the U.S.; a 2.0L and 2.5L. Meanwhile in Europe and Japan, Mazda announced that the new 3 will also come in a diesel and hybrid model. That begs the question, will the U.S.-Spec Mazda3 come with either one of those engines.

    According to Mazda USA's CEO Jim O'Sullivan, the answer is a maybe. O'Sullivan told Automotive News that the company is considering adding the 2.2L SKYACTIV-D to the Mazda3. However, the company wants to see how the new Mazda6 with the same diesel engine will fare before making a final decision.

    As for the Mazda3 Hybrid, O'Sullivan said for the time being the company has no plans to sell it in the U.S.
