What is Mazda SKYACTIV Technology?

If you're an experienced Mazda driver around Grand Rapids or Holland, by now you've heard the term "Mazda SKYACTIV Technology." But what does that even mean? The elite team of engineers at Mazda are always looking for ways to get more out of their vehicles in every possible facet, and thus have developed SKYACTIV Technology as their answer. Simply put, Mazda vehicles can achieve better power and efficiency without having to sacrifice either; something the competition has yet to achieve.

SKYACTIV Technology consists of every part of a Mazda vehicle; the engine, the chassis, the transmission, and even body construction.


SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter engines sit at the forefront of the SKYACTIV revolution. These engines improve fuel economy that produces fewer emissions by getting more out of the gasoline you put in them. They have higher compression ratios than conventional motors, meaning they unlock more energy out of gasoline, allowing it last longer and produce higher levels of power.


Mazda vehicles feature one of two SKYACTIV transmissions, a six-speed automatic and a six-speed manual. The automatic specializes in smoothness and speed when it comes to shifting, while the manual gives experienced drivers enhanced control for a more involved drive.

Body and Chassis

Augmenting the SKYACTIV engine's superior power and efficiency capabilities are the body and chassis design of the vehicles in the Mazda lineup. A lightweight body keeps the vehicles incredibly responsive while the ultra-high tensile-strength steel never compromises on durability. When you get behind the wheel of a Mazda, you will undoubtedly notice enhanced agility when driving at low speeds and stability at highway speeds that give you the confidence to truly go anywhere.
