Mazda's already well known for its fuel-efficient SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY, which most recently is  gathering interest from Toyota on the tech side of things. Engines with SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY, with a compression ratio of 14:1, are better than conventional combustion engines, providing both fuel efficiency, and improved performance. While the everyday combustion engine manages to make use of only 30% of fuel's potential energy, the SKYACTIV®-G gasoline engine does much better, increasing fuel efficiency and torque by around 15%.

Gasoline isn't the only fuel source Mazda is utilizing. The SKYACTIV®-D diesel engine combines improved fuel efficiency, while maintaining clean emissions. This engine features 20% in fuel efficiency over the standard diesel engine, while also meeting emissions standards. The SKYACTIV®-D is also installed with a high-efficiency turbo charger for improved power. As a result, the diesel engine hits home with a direct response and excellent acceleration.

Engines aren't the only things that make SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY. With an expanded lockup range of 80%, the SKYACTIV®-Drive automatic transmission feels like a classic manual. The SKYACTIV®-MT manual transmission, while lightweight, also maintains a crisp feeling when shifting. While the SKYACTIV®-Drive automatic transmission results in great fuel efficiency, even at low speeds, the SKYACTIV®-MT's design resulted in a weight reduction of 16% - and a size reduction.
