SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY

Mazda’s breakthrough SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY is an innovative automotive engineering strategy that delivers superior fuel economy, enhanced safety, lower emissions and a natural, intuitive response to driver input – all without ever giving up an ounce of Mazda’s signature driving exhilaration.

LOWER FUEL CONSUMPTION
The SKYACTIV-G 2.0 L engine produces more low/mid-range torque, yet has lower fuel consumption and emissions than our previous 2.0 L engine.

IMPROVED TORQUE
The SKYACTIV-G engine is the world’s first gasoline engine for mass production vehicles to achieve a high compression ratio of 13:1, capturing more energy from fuel and improving fuel efficiency and torque.

PRECISE RESPONSIVENESS
To build the SKYACTIV-Drive transmission, we combined all the best features of modern transmissions to get smooth shifting, steady acceleration, and the precise responsiveness of a manual.

IMPROVED BODY RIGIDITY
Through smarter engineering and materials, we were able to improve body rigidity (for better handling) and shed weight, all while improving crash safety performance and fuel economy.
