Mazda RX-8 Kenya: Reviews, Price, Specifications

The Mazda RX-8 is a 4-seater sports car that was in production from 2003 to 2012. It comes with a 1.3-Litre Wankel Rotary engine, which greatly attributed to its demise. The Wankel Rotary engine uses pressure for motion and its an inefficient engine that consumes more fuel and is not friendly in terms of emissions. Due to its complex engineering, the Mazda RX-8 was largely shunned in the Kenyan market and very few of them were imported to this market.
