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® TECHNOLOGY. 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.
Fuel Economy 
Performance 
Together

Our philosophy is that if it's not worth driving, it's not worth building. So 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.
The SKYACTIV-G 2.0L Gasoline Engine
Currently, 95% of the world uses gasoline or diesel combustion engines, and by 2020 90% still will. In this fact we saw an enormous opportunity: If we could find a way to make the internal combustion engine work better, we could make a big difference in how much fuel the world uses and how much CO2 is emitted. Our 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 our previous 2.0-liter engine.
The SKYACTIV - Drive Six Speed Automomatic Transmission

Now that we had come up with such a revolutionary engine, we 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.
The SKYACTIV -Body and SKYACTIV -Chasis

With our SKYACTIV® Body and Chassis, we were determined to get more of that exhilarating Mazda driving feel while increasing crash safety performance and reducing weight. Through smarter engineering and materials, we were 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.
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.
