CHAMPIONING THE DRIVER
At Mazda, we are all about the drive – and how it makes you feel. Because we know that driving is so much more than the simple act of operating an automobile. It’s about touch, feel. Not only should your car respond perfectly to driving input, but every system should be intuitive, instilling a sense of harmony and confidence, heightening your state of being through an elevated driving experience. That’s what Mazda is all about.
When the components of a system are engineered to work together, that system will operate at peak efficiency. This is the simple idea behind Mazda SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY. But efficiency isn’t the only benefit. It also delivers a superior drive.
YOUR WORLD GOES WITH YOU

Mazda’s dynamic technology, SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control, helps achieve a smoother, less fatiguing drive for you and your passengers. It’s a highly efficient vehicle movement control system that operates in the background during a spirited drive. When cornering, the system works seamlessly by adjusting power delivery, shifting vehicle weight on initial turn-in and throughout the corner. The effect is subtle, but how you feel after a great drive isn’t. Why go to these lengths? Because we believe no detail is too small when it comes to making driving better.
i-ACTIVSENSE® is the moniker for Mazda's suite of available advanced safety technologies. An active approach to safety, i-ACTIVSENSE uses milliwave radars and cameras to keep you in tune with your surroundings. While you stay focused on the road. Get maximum confidence and enjoyment out of your drive knowing that systems are working constantly to help alert you to potential hazards.
Our predictive i-ACTIV AWD® system helps deliver traction and confidence on every type of road surface and in every type of weather. When equipped, information from multiple data points measuring road conditions and driving inputs is used to predict the need for AWD and adjust power delivery accordingly.
Our mission to forge a closer connection between car and driver must not come at the expense of the beautiful planet to which we are all connected. Environmental impact is always top of mind. So we’re proud that as of January 2018, and for the fifth consecutive year (2012-2016), Mazda has achieved the highest fuel efficiency of any other mainstream automotive manufacturer according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.2
When the brakes are applied, most of that forward momentum, or kinetic energy, dissipates into heat. In other words, it’s wasted. Available on select models3, the i-ELOOP brake energy regeneration system solves this problem by converting kinetic energy into electricity as the car decelerates. It can then be used to power the headlights, climate control, audio system or any other electrical equipment. Lessening the burden on the engine and improving fuel economy.
Fostering a bond between car and driver is a task that goes beyond driving dynamics. In today’s hyper-connected world, cars have become communication tools. Another opportunity for Mazda to improve the driving experience. MAZDA CONNECT™ is our next-generation interface that allows you to access the information you need and the entertainment you want.4
We believe that every aspect of a car should be crafted around the driver.
