Mazda has been named the most fuel-efficient automaker in the US by the Environmental Protection Agency in its annual Light Duty Fuel Economy Trends report for the third year in a row.
Based on the 2014 model year, the latest year the EPA has data on, Mazda has the highest fleet-wide adjusted fuel economy in the industry at 29.4 mpg and the lowest average CO2 emissions at 328, despite the absence of any hybrid or electric cars in its lineup.
Mazda cars achieve this thanks to their use of SKYACTIV technology, a suite of components and tech that work together to make engines more efficient and cars and their parts more lightweight. SKYACTIV engines use direct fuel injection to boost fuel economy.
The whole Mazda lineup uses SKYACTIV technology, including the all-new 2016 Mazda CX-9, which will include a new 2.5-liter turbocharged SKYACTIV engine. The SKYACTIV tech in the Mazda CX-3 gives it class-leading fuel economy among compact SUVs and crossovers.
If you’re looking for a car that’s kind to the environment without sacrificing performance, Mazda’s lineup offers the most efficient cars in the industry without the hybrid premium.
