skyactiv® TECHNOLOGY

Groundbreaking innovation is in our DNA

Mazda’s breakthrough Skyactiv® Technology is an innovative automotive engineering strategy that delivers superior fuel economy, enhanced safety, lower emissions and a natural, intuitive response to driver input – all without ever giving up an ounce of Mazda’s signature driving exhilaration.

Fuel Economy

Lower Fuel Consumption

Lower fuel consumption

The Skyactiv-G® 2.0 L engine produces more low/mid-range torque, yet has lower fuel consumption and emissions than our previous 2.0 L engine.

High Efficiency

High efficiency

The 2.5 L Skyactiv-G® engine has a high compression ratio for superior fuel economy and low- and mid-range torque that surpasses conventional gasoline engines.

Fuel Injector

6-hole direct fuel injector

A high-pressure 6-hole direct fuel injector helps keep fuel cool to improve combustion efficiency.


Lower Fuel Consumption

Improved torque

The Skyactiv-G® engine is the world’s first gasoline engine for mass production vehicles to achieve a high compression ratio of 13:1, capturing more energy from fuel and improving fuel efficiency and torque.

Compression Ratio

Raise the compression ratio

The dome-shaped pistons in the Skyactiv-G® engine raise the compression ratio, harnessing more energy from fuel.

Friction Reduction

Reduces friction

The Skyactiv-G® engine improves oil and water pump efficiency, and reduces friction in pistons, rods and crank shaft.

exhaust manifold

4-2-1 exhaust manifold

The special 4-2-1 exhaust manifold is one of the innovations in the SKYACTIV-G® engine that helps make a high compression ratio possible.



Precise responsiveness

To build the Skyactiv®-Drive transmission, we combined all the best features of modern transmissions to get smooth shifting, steady acceleration, and the precise responsiveness of a manual.


More torque quickly

The Skyactiv®-Drive transmission takes the speed of the driver’s pedal inputs into account. When the pedal is pressed slowly, the transmission does not shift until the driver has used all available torque. When the pedal is pressed quickly, the transmission shifts down sooner to give the driver more torque more quickly.


6-speed Skyactiv-MT

Inspired by the legendary MX-5, the 6-speed Skyactiv®-MT manual transmission is smaller, lighter and stronger than any we’ve built before – promoting better fuel economy.

Fuel Efficiency

More fuel efficiency

Skyactiv®-Drive transmission delivers more fuel efficiency than our previous automatic transmission, combining the responsive feel of a manual with the smoothness of an automatic.

Body and Chassis

body rigidity

Improved body rigidity

Through smarter engineering and materials, we were able to improve body rigidity (for better handling) and shed weight, all while improving crash safety performance and fuel economy.


Ultra-high-tensile steel

We are constantly searching for new ways to make you safer behind the wheel. That’s why Mazda is the first auto manufacturer to use ultra-high-tensile steel in body construction.

steel aluminum

Steel & aluminum

Until now welding two different metals such as steel and aluminum has been a difficult task. However, by optimizing the rotating tool shape and joining characteristics, and by using galvanized steel on one side, joining steel and aluminum has been made possible.


Nimble at low speed, stable at high speed

The Skyactiv®-Chassis steering and suspension systems achieve two seemingly contradictory goals – nimble at low speeds, yet stable at high speeds. And stability and responsiveness are both key components of how a vehicle performs when safety matters.
