2015 Mazda6 mpgYou should be excited about the 2015 Mazda6, on sale now at Cox Chevy in Bradenton. Not only does this sports sedan look incredibly cool and sleek, feel comfortable, and provide top-tier safety, but its SKYACTIV powertrain is something you have to get behind the wheel to believe. Read on for more specs, including mpg, combustion efficiency, reduced chassis weight, and much more.

Basic Specs for the Mazda6 SKYACTIV

The SKYACTIV powertrain comes with a 2.5L inline 4-cylinder engine. Its transmission is a 6-speed manual for maximum control behind the wheel, or 6-speed automatic for smooth gear-shifting. It will get you an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 39 on the highway while 184 hp will get you where you need to go with sporty ease. And with the optional i-Eloop regenerative braking system, fuel economy raises up to 28 mpg city and 40 mpg highway.

The SKYACTIV-G is a new kind of engine. It uses direct-injection to combust gasoline and gets the world’s highest gas compression ratio of 14.0:1. This will get you much higher torque at lower speeds than an average engine. Plus, the engine packs a 4-2-1 exhaust system for maximum performance, and cavity pistons to push your gasoline to the limit.

Other Features of SKYACTIV

The SKYACTIV-Drive transmission combines all the strengths of normal automatic transmissions, CVTs, and dual clutch transmissions. It’ll also put out up to 7% better fuel efficiency than the current Mazda6 transmission. The SKYACTIV-MT, offering top-grade manual transmission hardware, has dropped a lot of weight for a sports car feel to your gear-shifting.

The new chassis shoots over the moon, achieving oneness between car and driver with lightweight suspension and new, more in-control steering functions. Altogether, this is the kind of car you’ve been dreaming about: lightweight, sporty, but also roaring with power.
