What Is MAZDA SKYACTIV® Technology?

MAZDA SKYACTIV

Every new Mazda sedan, SUV, or crossover comes equipped with Skyactiv® Technology. What is Skyactiv® Technology? Mazda developed this series of proprietary technologies to increase fuel efficiency and engine output. You’ll find Skyactiv® features throughout vehicles like the Mazda CX-30 — from engine and transmission to body and chassis. These technologies work together to boost your Mazda model’s performance every time you get behind the wheel in Hamden. Join Hamden Mazda for a closer look at how Skyactiv® Technology boosts performance and saves you money on fuel.

SKYACTIV® Technology: Fuel Economy Benefits

The heart of Skyactiv® is undoubtedly the engine. When it comes to the perfect balance of efficiency and power, what is Skyactiv® Technology able to achieve? Mazda gas and diesel engines improve efficiency by fine-tuning the fuel compression. Here’s how it works:

  • MAZDA SKYACTIV®-G — Skyactiv®-G direct-injection gas engines increase the engine compression ratio to 14.0:1. At the same time, they keep fuel burning steadily and avoid engine knock with 4-2-1 engine exhaust systems, a piston cavity, and optimized fuel injection. The result? Up to 15% better fuel economy.
  • MAZDA SKYACTIV®-Diesel — Skyactiv®-Diesel engines improve fuel economy by 20% — thanks to the world’s lowest diesel-engine compression ratio of 14.0:1. At the same time, these engines comply with strict global exhaust gas regulations without the aid of expensive NOx (nitrogen oxides) after-treatment systems.

MAZDA SKYACTIV® Transmissions

Equip your new Mazda with one of two available Skyactiv® transmissions:

  • SKYACTIV®-Drive — Boost fuel economy by 4% to 6% with this 6-speed automatic transmission. You’ll be surprised by the excellent fuel economy specs and seamless shifting on the road in New Haven — and a driving experience more akin to a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and a dual-clutch automated manual.
  • SKYACTIV®-MT — This small and lightweight 6-speed manual transmission conserves fuel with quick and efficient gear switches.

SKYACTIV® Technology: Body & Chassis Features

Beyond the powertrain, Skyactiv® Technology involves adjustments to the body, chassis, suspension, and more:

  • SKYACTIV®-Body — Skyactiv®-Body makes for a body that’s 8% lighter and 30% more rigid than previous mazda models.
  • SKYACTIV®-Chassis — This upgraded chassis reduces total weight by 14%, and improves front and rear suspension systems and electric power steering.
  • SKYACTIV®-Vehicle Dynamics — Skyactiv®-Vehicle Dynamics uses G-Vectoring Control technology activity reduces engine torque and shifts vehicle weight to the front wheels. The result is crisp cornering and hyper-responsive handling. Translation: North Haven drives will never be dull again!
