Mazda SKYACTIV® tech

How Mazda SKYACTIV® Tech Works

Any Mazda fan will recognize the words “SKYACTIV® Technology.” These breakthroughs in technology have allowed Mazda to go above and beyond when it comes to performance, delivering those fast, zippy speeds you’ve expected to come from the brand name. Mazda SKYACTIV® Technology was designed to use less fuel more efficiently to drain as much power as possible out of the engine, allowing Mazda’s lightweight cars to be as fuel efficient as they are powerful.

SKYACTIV® engines make use of technology that utilizes the world’s leading combustion ratio. What does that mean? In their quest to develop SKYACTIV® engines, Mazda set the bar high in search for the ideal combustion. What resulted was a compression ratio of 14:1, something that you just don’t see in any other engine on the market. Most conventional internal combustion engines only use around 30% of the potential energy their fuel produces.

Mazda SKYACTIV® Technology extends to the transmission, where Mazda has managed to seamlessly combine smooth transitions with more improved fuel economy. Both automatic and manual transmissions are available. The weight-reduced but more safe and rigid body and chassis allow for even more aerodynamic, lightweight reductions in fuel consumption. Basically, Mazda nailed their goal when it came to the development of SKYACTIV® Technology.
