I am sure you have heard of SkyActiv. It is a technology that Mazda offers on its vehicles. It is a selling point, but why? What is SkyActiv Technology? It’s ok if you don’t know, I didn’t either. That is why I decided to do some research for you.
is how Mazda’s, driving-obsessed engineers have enhanced both performance and fuel efficiency. From the body construction and engine technology, to chassis and transmission, every aspect of the vehicle has been engineered to maximize driving dynamics and efficiency. Mazda’s offer an impressive EPA-estimated MPG ratings, without compromising performance.
How did they do this? First stop, Mazda engineered a smarter engine. The SkyActiv-G 2.0L and 2-5L gasoline engines deliver much greater fuel efficiency, with higher compression ratios than conventional engines. What does that mean? Basically, SkyActiv engines can compress the air-fuel mixture in the cylinders to an extraordinary degree, getting far more energy from every drop of fuel.
At the center of the Mazda driving experience is the SkyActiv platform. This technology consists of the body and chassis. The chassis achieves two, what might see contradictory goals at the same time. Nimbleness at low speeds and stability at high speeds. The framework uses ultra-high tensile-strength steel in areas to make it light, yet stiffer and stronger.
Engineers at Mazda have spent eight years developing the smallest detail to improve performance. That technology is SkyActive-Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control. This subtle addition enhances the vehicle’s dynamics on an extremely minute level. Something that makes every drive more enjoyable.
