What's there to deny?
Turbo = DI
NA = PI
Wrong. Both of Mazda's naturally aspirated 2.0L and 2.5L engines are direct injected motors since 2014.

However if we're talking about carbon build up, there may be less blow by for an NA DI motor vs. turbo DI.

And none of them are Mazda's, what's your point?

To go off topic with you, you're sidestepping my point that there are fewer, and fewer port injected ICE's, in favor of direct injection - which by nature are susceptible to carbon build-up.

I'm not complaining, two of my three vehicles are Mazda's. One PI, one DI. Even owned a DISI that was particularly plagued with build up.
My point is to look elsewhere.
Why the F would you want to buy a vehicle that will crap on you early?
I made that mistake myself buying the 2016 Sport with the DI 3.5L twinturbo and will avoid DI going foward.
Manufacturers such as Toyota and Ford have designed their engines with both port and direct injection to circumvent the carbon issue.

My point was to avoid DI in general!

I own a 2014 GT
Pros:
Good features for the money
Good fuel economy
Cons:
Highway wind noisie + tire noise if you get a GT (19" low profiles)

I would suggest getting a 2015 GS if you want comfort (GT has low profiles that are definitely not comfy)
Saw a 2016 GS with 60k going for 20K, no accidents single owner from a dealership a month back
