mazda going around corner

All new Mazda models have Mazda Skyactiv® Technology and many drivers may be asking, “What is Mazda Skyactiv® Technology?” This is the philosophy that the fuel-efficiency drivers want shouldn’t detract from the strong performance drivers like. Not only is this applied to Mazda engines, but also the transmission, body, and chassis for an overall enhanced drive. Learn more about this technology and more with Tulley Mazda today then test drive your favorite new Mazda with this technology.

Gas & Diesel Engines

Mazda engines are unique. They stand apart from the competition for many reasons, but the one that stands out most is the Skyactiv® Technology. Here’s why:

  • 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. SkyactivV®-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®-Diesel: Skyactiv®-Diesel engines have a lower compression ratio compared to other diesel engines. This improves fuel economy and lowers emission levels. The upcoming Mazda CX-5 Diesel will feature this technology, as well as other upcoming Mazda models.


Mazda models offer two transmission options. Each with integrated Skyactiv® Technology. Here are the available options:

  • Skyactiv®-Drive: This is a 6-speed automatic transmission that offers Merrimack drivers the fuel economy and seamlessness of a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), as well as 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

Mazda uses the following technologies to ensure Skyactiv® Technology goes beyond just the powertrain. Combining these technologies with the vehicle’s body and chassis gives drivers optimized fuel economy, exciting driving dynamics, and an overall stylish ride:

  • Skyactiv®-Body: Skyactiv®-Body creates a body that’s 8% lighter and 30% more rigid.
  • Skyactiv®-Chassis: With a new and improved front and rear suspension system and electric power steering, this chassis provides 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.
