WHAT IS MAZDA SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY?

MAZDA SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY ENGINE

SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY is really what sets the vehicles in the new MAZDA lineup apart from the competition. So, what is Mazda SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY? It is a set of advanced technologies designed to increase both fuel-efficiency and engine output. If that sounds like what you want on the roads in and around Normal, then read on to learn more about all that SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY has to offer before you test drive an exciting new MAZDA at Sam Leman Mazda.

GAS & DIESEL ENGINES

Take a look at what SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY in MAZDA engines can add to your Morton commute: 

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

TRANSMISSIONS

Mazda transmissions with SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY are built to match the capabilities of these powerful and efficient engines: 

  • The SKYACTIV®-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission delivers the fuel efficiency and smooth shifting of a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and a dual-clutch automated manual, boosting fuel economy by 4% to 7%. 
  • The SKYACTIV®-MT is a small and lightweight 6-speed manual transmission that switches gears quickly without wasting fuel. 

BODY, CHASSIS, & HANDLING

SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY also extends to the vehicles’ bodies and frameworks to deliver optimized fuel economy and thrilling driving dynamics: 

  • SKYACTIV®-BODY is 8% lighter and 30% more rigid. 
  • SKYACTIV®-CHASSIS introduces a new and improved front and rear suspension system and electric power steering, as well as a 14% weight reduction. 
  • SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control improves cornering by reducing engine torque and shifting weight to the front wheels.
