What is Mazda SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY?

What is Mazda SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY? SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY is arguably the most crucial aspect of new Mazda vehicles, from the Mazda3 to the Mazda CX-9 to the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF and so on. This system proves that fuel-efficiency doesn’t have to mean sacrificing performance. Learn more about how this system applies this philosophy to the engine, transmission, body, and chassis to get Rio Rancho drivers the powerful yet efficient drive they want.

Gas & Diesel Engines

Here’s a quick look at what makes engines with SKYACTIV® 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

Having a powerful engine means your vehicle needs a transmission to match. Check out Mazda’s transmissions with SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY:

  • SKYACTIV®-Drive: This 6-speed automatic transmission gives Santa Fe 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 4-7%.
  • SKYACTIV®-MT: Small and lightweight, this 6-speed manual transmission switches gears quickly and without wasting fuel.

Body, Chassis, & Handling

SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY goes beyond just the powertrain. Mazda has engineered its vehicles’ bodies and framework to assist in delivering the best fuel economy and driving dynamics possible.

  • 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.
