Skyactiv Engine

What is Mazda SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY?

SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY is crucial to the efficient and powerful performance of new mazda models like the Mazda CX-9 or Mazda MX-5 Miata. This technology is the philosophy that fuel-efficiency shouldn’t detract from performance. Not only is this applied to the engine, but to the transmission, body, and chassis as well.

Gas & Diesel Engines

There are quite a few aspects that make engines with SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY so unique. These include:

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

Transmissions

While the impact that SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY has on engines is impressive, there’s more to be amazed by. Check out Mazda’s transmissions with SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY:

  • SKYACTIV®-Drive: This 6-speed automatic transmission gives Las Vegas 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

Powertrain aside, SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY also modifies Mazda vehicle’s bodies and frameworks to deliver optimized fuel economy and exciting driving dynamics:

  • 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.
