New Mazda CX-5 with SKYACTIV Technology

The Mazda CX-5 will be the first Mazda built using Mazda’s SKYACTIV technology

The Mazda CX-5 will be the first Mazda built using Mazda’s SKYACTIV technology. The new SKYACTIV technology encompasses the whole car through the intelligent application of advanced engine, transmission, body and chassis technology and lightweight engineering.

SKYACTIV centres on three key areas; advanced engines with world-beating compression ratios, highly efficient transmissions, and sophisticated lightweight chassis technology for outstanding crash safety performance and enhanced driving enjoyment. Eighty percent of energy contained in fuel is lost within a vehicle’s powertrain, so Mazda’s engineers adopted a radical back-to-basics approach to boosting the outright efficiency of their next-generation engines.

The engine line-up for the European specification Mazda CX-5 will include Mazda's SKYACTIV-G 2.0 gasoline engine and SKYACTIV-D 2.2 diesel engine, which will be available in Standard Power and High Power versions. Each engine has a record-breaking compression ratio of 14:1 for ideal efficiency. Mazda's engineers focused on achieving exceptional environmental performance for a compact SUV and targeted CO2 emissions of less than 120g/km for the SKYACTIV-D 2.2 engined model.
