Mazda Designer With Mazda Parts

Mazda Skyactiv® Technology is the philosophy that fuel-efficiency shouldn’t detract from performance. This technology is applied to each Mazda car, crossover, and SUV’s engine, transmission, body, and chassis to ensure a powerful driving experience. Learn more about Mazda Skyactiv® Technology and what it adds to your new Mazda model with this helpful guide from North Penn Mazda.


Each Mazda engine comes built with Skyactiv® Technology integrated into it. This gives each Mazda impressive performance while maintaining efficiency on Lansdale roads and beyond, which you can see in the 2021 CX-5 gas mileage. Here’s how Skyactiv® Technology affects the engine:

  • SKYACTIV®-G: This engine is a take on the aspirated gasoline engines and can be had as a 2.0L or 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. Skyactiv®-G compresses the air-fuel mixture inside the engine at a rate of 14.0:1. This increases fuel-efficiency by as much as 15%.
  • SKYACTIV®-Diesel: Compared to other diesel engines, Skyactiv®-Diesel engines have a lower compression ratio, improving fuel economy and lowering emission levels. The upcoming Mazda CX-5 Diesel will feature this technology.


New Mazda models offer two transmission options for drivers. These are also crafted with Skyactiv® Technology:

  • SKYACTIV®-Drive: This 6-speed automatic transmission gives Lansdale drivers the fuel economy and seamlessness of a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and a dual-clutch automated manual. With this transmission, fuel economy is boosted by 4% to 7%.
  • SKYACTIV®-MT: Small and lightweight, this 6-speed manual transmission switches gears quickly and without wasting fuel.


Mazda’s Skyactiv® Technology goes above and beyond the powertrain of new models. This technology ensures optimized fuel economy, a stronger body and framework, and better handling:

  • SKYACTIV®-Body: Compared to previous Mazda models’ body designs, Skyactiv®-Body creates a body that’s 8% lighter and 30% more rigid.
  • SKYACTIV®-Chassis: This chassis introduced a new and improved front and rear suspension system and electric power steering, as well as a 14% weight reduction.
  • SKYACTIV®-Vehicle Dynamics: Skyactiv®-Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control improves cornering by reducing engine torque and shifting weight to the front wheels.
