Maximum efficiency and performance, without compromise

 

Our engineers know that fuel efficiency is just as important as performance. That’s why they devised a groundbreaking new way to develop our engines, so that you can sit back and focus on the pure fun of driving. Every element of the car has been reimagined to improve efficiency and maximise dynamics. From the body and chassis to engines and transmission, we now offer the world’s best compression ratios. We call this SKYACTIV Technology. 

Mazda G-Vectoring Control

In the spirit of Jinba Ittai, horse and rider as one, we want our drivers to feel completely at one with our cars when on the road. G-Vectoring Control is the technology that allows that ambition to become reality. Explore the science behind our uniquely intuitive drive.

      Engines

      Our highly efficient SKYACTIV diesel and petrol engines provide an exciting new level of performance. By pushing the limits, our engineers have created machines that can squeeze far more energy from every drop of fuel, bringing you sheer driving pleasure and outstanding fuel economy. Mazda's SKYACTIV-G 2.0 litre is a refined, direct-injection petrol engine offering high fuel economy and the highest compression ratio among petrol engines 14.0:1.

    • Transmission

      Transmission

      Enjoy maximum control on the road thanks to our advanced transmissions that deliver even more power to the wheels, ensuring smooth, split second gear changes and precise handling. Thanks to an expanded lockup range of more than 80%, the SKYACTIV-DRIVE automatic transmission gives you the direct feel of a manual transmission. The SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission, with its class-leading light weight, ensures a crisp feel when shifting.

    • i-ELOOP

      i-ELOOP

      Mazda’s i-ELOOP (Brake Energy Regeneration System) uses a capacitor to store electricity recovered during deceleration. This energy is then used to power the headlights, climate control, audio system, or any other of the car's electrical equipment. Not only a unique way to store otherwise wasted energy, i-ELOOP offers improved performance whilst saving you fuel in the process.

    • i-Stop

      i-STOP

      Working in perfect harmony with i-ELOOP, iSTOP (Idling Stop Technology) is a smart technology that saves fuel by switching off the engine when the car stops, for example when idling in traffic. It uses direct fuel injection techniques and optimal piston positioning to allow you to re-start your car almost instantly. This means you’ll benefit from a significant improvement in fuel economy.
