MORE PERFORMANCE. MORE EFFICIENCY. MORE ENJOYMENT.

SkyActiv® technology

A SMARTER APPROACH TO MAKING DRIVING BETTER.

When Driving Matters, excellent fuel efficiency should never come at the cost of performance. So, of course, our driving-obsessed engineers found a way to enhance both. It’s called SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY1. Every aspect of the vehicle is engineered to maximize driving dynamics and efficiency: from body construction and engine technology, to the chassis and transmission. Offering impressive EPA-estimated MPG ratings. Without compromising performance. SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY is just one of the ways Mazda makes driving better.

CLEANER, MORE FUEL-EFFICIENT ENGINES

Skyactiv®-g gasoline

Conventional internal combustion engines only harness around 30 percent of the potential energy of fuel. So Mazda engineered a smarter engine. By pushing the limits of internal combustion, the SKYACTIV®-G 2.0L and 2.5L gasoline engines deliver much greater fuel efficiency. With higher compression ratios than conventional engines. Simply put, SKYACTIV® engines can compress the air-fuel mixture in the cylinders to an extraordinary degree. Squeezing far more energy from every drop of fuel.

ENGAGING, RESPONSIVE TRANSMISSIONS

SKYACTIV®-DRIVE 6-SPEED AUTOMATIC

The SKYACTIV®-Drive 6-speed automatic shifts smoothly and quickly for steady acceleration. Its advanced control module ensures precision, responsiveness and efficiency.

SKYACTIV®-MT 6-SPEED MANUAL

Built for drivers who love the feel of a manual, the SKYACTIV®-MT 6-speed manual transmission's short-throw is inspired by the legendary Mazda MX-5 Miata.

STRONGER, LIGHTER BODY AND CHASSIS

The SKYACTIV® platform, consisting of the body and chassis, is at the center of the Mazda driving experience. The chassis achieves two seemingly contradictory goals at once: nimbleness at low speeds and stability at high speeds. The framework incorporates ultra-high tensile-strength steel in critical areas to help make it lighter, yet stiffer and stronger.
