Gas & Diesel Engines

  • SKYACTIV®-G: This engine is a take on the aspirated gasoline engines and can be had as a 2.0L or 2.5L 4-cylinder. SKYACTIV®-G compresses the air-fuel mixture inside the engine at a rate of 14.0:1. This increases fuel-efficiency by as much as 15%.
  • SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY in Diesel Engines: Compared to other diesel engines, these Mazda diesel engines have a lower compression ratio, improving fuel economy and lowering emission levels. The upcoming Mazda CX-5 Diesel will feature this technology.

Transmissions

  • SKYACTIV®-Drive: This 6-speed automatic transmission gives Raleigh drivers the fuel economy and seamlessness of a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and a dual-clutch automated manual. With this transmission, fuel economy is boosted by 4% to 7%.
  • SKYACTIV®-MT: Small and lightweight, this 6-speed manual transmission switches gears quickly and without wasting fuel.

Body, Chassis, & Handling

SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY is also applied to the vehicle’s body, chassis, and more to ensure the Mazda is engineered to deliver an optimized fuel economy and exciting driving dynamics:

  • SKYACTIV®-Body: Compared to previous Mazda models’ body designs, SKYACTIV®-Body creates a body that’s 8% lighter and 30% more rigid.
  • SKYACTIV®-Chassis: This chassis introduced a new and improved front and rear suspension system and electric power steering, as well as a 14% weight reduction.
  • SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS: SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control improves cornering by reducing engine torque and shifting weight to the front wheels.
