Maximum efficiency and performance, without compromise

 

Our engineers know that fuel efficiency is just as important as performance. That’s why they devised a groundbreaking new way to develop our engines, so that you can sit back and focus on the pure fun of driving. Every element of the car has been reimagined to improve efficiency and maximise dynamics. From the body and chassis to engines and transmission, we now offer the world’s best compression ratios. We call this SKYACTIV Technology.

      Engines

      Our highly efficient SKYACTIV-D Diesel and SKYACTIV-G Petrol engines provide an exciting level of performance. Our engineers have created engines that bring sheer driving pleasure with outstanding fuel economy. Our 2.2 litre Diesel offers one of the most efficient and powerful choices available, the lowest compression ratio among diesel engines, contributing to lower CO2 and NOx. Also 14:1, the highest compression ratio among petrol engines, our 2.0 litre Petrol is refined to offer exceptional performance and fuel economy.

    • Transmission

      Transmission

      Enjoy maximum control on the road thanks to our advanced transmissions that deliver even more power to the wheels, ensuring smooth, split second gear changes and precise handling. The SKYACTIV-DRIVE automatic transmission gives you the direct feel of a manual transmission. The SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission with its compact and lightweight design contributes to improved fuel economy.

    • i-ELOOP

      i-ELOOP

      Mazda’s i-ELOOP (regenerative braking system) uses a capacitor to store electricity recovered during deceleration. This energy is then used to power the headlights, climate control, audio system, or any other of the car's electrical equipment. Not only a unique way to store otherwise wasted energy, i-ELOOP offers improved performance whilst saving you fuel in the process.

    • i-Stop

      i-Stop

      i-Stop is a smart technology that saves fuel by switching off the engine when the car stops, for example when idling in traffic. It uses direct fuel injection techniques and optimal piston positioning to allow you to re-start your car almost instantly. This means you’ll benefit from a significant improvement in fuel economy.
