What is Mazda Skyactiv® Technology?

Drivers are hearing more and more about new Mazda Skyactiv® Technology. So, what is Mazda Skyactiv® Technology? This is the philosophy that fuel-efficiency shouldn’t detract from performance. Not only does this apply to the model’s engine, but also the transmission, body, and chassis for an enhanced performance no matter where the Mooresville roads may take you. Learn more about this technology and more with Keffer Mazda today then test drive your favorite new Mazda with this technology.

Gas & Diesel Engines

Skyactiv® Technology, when applied to the Mazda engine, offers a drive unlike the rest. Here’s a quick look at what makes this performance feature so unique:

  • SKYACTIV®-G: This engine is a take on the aspirated gasoline engines and can be had as a 2.0L or 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. Skyactiv®-G compresses the air-fuel mixture inside the engine at a rate of 14.0:1. This increases fuel-efficiency by as much as 15%.
  • SKYACTIV®-Diesel: Compared to other diesel engines, Skyactiv®-Diesel engines have a lower compression ratio, improving fuel economy and lowering emission levels. The upcoming Mazda CX-5 Diesel will feature this technology.

Transmissions

When it comes to transmissions, there are two options for new Mazda models. These are the Mazda transmissions with Skyactiv® Technology:

  • SKYACTIV®-Drive: This 6-speed automatic transmission gives Mooresville drivers the fuel economy and seamlessness of a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and a dual-clutch automated manual. With this transmission, fuel economy is boosted by 4% to 7%.
  • SKYACTIV®-MT: Small and lightweight, this 6-speed manual transmission switches gears quickly and without wasting fuel.

Body, Chassis, & Handling

Skyactiv® Technology goes beyond the powertrain. This technology is engineered to ensure an optimized fuel economy, exciting handling, and a body and framework for a stronger build:

  • SKYACTIV®-Body: Compared to previous Mazda models’ body designs, Skyactiv®-Body creates a body that’s 8% lighter and 30% more rigid.
  • SKYACTIV®-Chassis: This chassis introduced a new and improved front and rear suspension system and electric power steering, as well as a 14% weight reduction.
  • SKYACTIV®-Vehicle Dynamics: Skyactiv®-Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control improves cornering by reducing engine torque and shifting weight to the front wheels.
