Mazda's SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY

SKYACTIV®TECHNOLOGY
 
FUEL ECONOMY. PERFORMANCE. TOGETHER.
Mazda's philosophy is that if it's not worth driving, it's not worth building. So in their quest for better environmental performance, their goal was to reduce fuel consumption and emissions without compromising driving performance. To get there, they started with a clean sheet of paper and engineered every major component of the automobile to work together in efficient harmony. The result is something revolutionary.
ENGINES
THE SKYACTIV®-G 2.0L GASOLINE ENGINEModels: Mazda3 & CX-5
Currently, 95% of the world uses gasoline or diesel combustion engines, and by 2020 90% still will. In this fact Mazda saw an enormous opportunity: If they could find a way to make the internal combustion engine work better, they could make a big difference in how much fuel the world uses and how much CO2 is emitted.  Their solution is the SKYACTIV®-G gasoline engine, a 2.0-liter marvel that produces 10% to 15% more low/mid-range torque, along with 15% lower fuel consumption and emissions than their previous 2.0-liter engine.
TRANSMISSIONS
THE SKYACTIV®-DRIVE SIX-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONModels: Mazda3 & CX-5
Now that Mazda came up with such a revolutionary engine, they needed the ultimate transmission to get all that precious energy to the wheels. How do you build that? Study every modern transmission made, take the best features of each and fire up the blender. Then, top it all off by adding a brain, A.K.A. an advanced control module. The result is the SKYACTIV®-Drive six-speed automatic transmission. It shifts smoothly for steady acceleration and quickly for the connected feel of a manual transmission, while the brain delivers precision responsiveness and reliability.
PLATFORM
THE SKYACTIV®-BODY AND SKYACTIV®-CHASSISModels: Mazda3 & CX-5
With Mazda's SKYACTIV® Body and Chassis, they were determined to get more of that exhilarating Mazda driving feel while increasing crash safety performance and reducing weight. Through smarter engineering and materials, Mazda was able to improve body rigidity by 30% (for better handling) and shed 220 pounds, all while improving crash safety performance. To give you more of that "oneness" between car and driver, the suspension was redesigned for greater agility at low speeds and more stability at high speeds.
