Introducing Mazda's SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY | Mazda USA
In our quest for better environmental performance, our goal was to reduce fuel consumption and emissions without compromising driving performance. To get there, we 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. You can find it in Mazda3 models, as well as the Mazda CX-5 and the Mazda6. Soon, SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY will be in every new Mazda.
The SKYACTIV®-G 2.0L & 2.5L Gasoline Engines
Refusing to sacrifice performance for efficiency, we set out to find a way to reduce fuel consumption and emissions while also increasing power. Our result takes the combustion engine to a whole new level.
The SKYACTIV®-Drive Six-Speed Automatic Transmission
The transmission is not only extremely important in improving fuel economy, it also plays a major role in driving performance. Naturally, we were determined to improve both aspects. See how combining the best features of all transmissions, as well as a control module "brain" made that possible.
The SKYACTIV®-Body and SKYACTIV®-Chassis
Excess weight isn't just a problem for fitness instructors; too many pounds can impede fuel economy and driving performance. By exercising our engineering muscles, we were able to slim down our SKYACTIV® Body and Chassis, but still improve driving attributes and efficiency.
Mazda's i-ELOOP Regenerative Braking System
Mazda's latest SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY innovation does something pretty amazing: basically, it turns wasted energy into driving enjoyment. The i-ELOOP regenerative braking system recycles kinetic energy to help power your car's electronics. The result: around 5% better fuel economy, and it frees up 100% of your car's horsepower so it can go directly to the wheels. Watch the video to see how Mazda's unconventional thinking made it possible.
