Our Guide to SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGIES

Mazda’s SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGIES make their appearance in a variety of ways in the new line of 2017 Mazda vehicles. Among the most effective, is the redesigned transmission that offers up to 30 percent less resistance and a 15-pound weight reduction for a lighter, more responsive experience. Other SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGIES featured in the 2017 vehicles include smarter engines with higher compression ratios which harness more of the engine’s energy output while reducing fuel consumption for a more efficient drive.
