The 'R' code cars are just 2012 Mazda 3i Tourings that DO NOT have the skyactiv technology. They (Mazda) did not have all the skyactiv production in place. So, the the first batch of released 2012 Mazda 3i Touring's were equipped with the standard 2.0 i4 engine. They are all but gone now. iSport's were never R-code cars.
