What is Mazda SKYACTIV® Technology?

2019 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring Reserve in red

SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY is a powerful, crucial aspect of new Mazda vehicles, from the Mazda3 to the Mazda CX-9 to the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF. So, what is Mazda SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY? It’s the philosophy that fuel-efficiency shouldn’t detract from performance. Mazda engineers apply this technology to the engine, transmission, body, and chassis of new Mazda models to give Redondo Beach drivers more on their commutes. Learn more about this technology below!

Gas & Diesel Engines

With multiple engine options, this technology affects the vehicle’s performance in ways that will enhance your drives. Here’s what makes this technology 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. 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®-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

With a powerful engine comes a powerful transmission. Check out what SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY can do when in a transmission system:

  • SKYACTIV®-Drive: This 6-speed automatic transmission gives Manhattan Beach 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

Using the following technologies, Mazda engineered its vehicles’ 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.
