SKYACTIV® technology offers the latest in fuel-efficient automotive technology. Mazda cars and SUVs equipped with a SKYACTIV® engine deliver improved power and efficiency without an increase in cost. To find out what exactly you can expect from Mazda’s two SKYACTIV® engines, the direct-injection gasoline and the diesel, continue reading.
Boasting the world’s highest gasoline engine compression ratio of 14.0:1, Mazda’s direct-injection gasoline engine is able to offer 15% increases in both fuel efficiency and torque output. Everyday driving is improved dramatically, as the low- and mid-range engine speeds offer more emphatic response and acceleration around town. In order to prevent engine knocking, a problem common to most cars with high compression engines, Mazda uses knock-resistant components such as a special exhaust system with a short manifold and a piston cavity that improves the fuel injection process.
Clean diesel engines are popular in many countries outside of the United States, as they offer the fuel efficiency you would expect to achieve with a hybrid car alongside large increases in torque, engine longevity, and overall performance. With its SKYACTIV® diesel engine, Mazda has made diesel technology even more attractive to drivers in America. The SKYACTIV-D’s impressive clean diesel engine compression ratio offers low emissions and other benefits of diesel technology without an exorbitant increase in price that typically comes with a diesel.
Other SkyActiv Technologies
SKYACTIV® is more than just engines—SKYACTIV® Mazda cars and SUVs come with SKYACTIV® transmissions, frames, and chasses too. The power of a SKYACTIV® engine goes even farther thanks to Mazda’s use of lightweight frames and highly efficient transmissions, such as the SKYACTIV® dual-clutch automated manual.
