What Falls Under Its Umbrella?

SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY engines can compress the air-fuel mixture in the cylinders to an extraordinary degree, getting more energy from every drop of fuel. An array of engine options are available.

  • SKYACTIV®-G is a new generation gasoline engine that boasts a compression ratio of 14:1, which is unprecedented for mass production engines. This engine offers improved fuel efficiency and torque performance at low and medium speeds to better serve real-world driving needs.
  • SKYACTIV®-D is a revolutionary diesel engine that delivers great fuel efficiency along with clean emissions. SKYACTIV®-D ensures smooth, direct response and superb acceleration.
  • SKYACTIV®-Drive is a family of automatic transmissions that has redesigned the conventional automatic transmission. The torque converter takes less duty while a multi-plate clutch disengages the torque converter providing the perfect mix of direct feel, smooth transmission, and fuel economy at low speeds.
  • SKYACTIV®-MT is a light and compact manual transmission system combining superior fuel economy with the crisp shifting feel of a sports car. The lever ratio is increased to achieve lighter shift effort with a short shift lever stroke.
  • SKYACTIV®-Body is light and rigid to ensure safe driving. With framework structured to disperse impact shocks, SKYACTIV®-Body ensures superior crash safety performance.
