SKYACTIV Technology Explained

Mazda’s SKYACTIV technology is unique to the Japanese manufacturer. With SKYACTIV, the goal is to reduce fuel consumption as much as possible while providing the road handling and performance you expect from a Mazda vehicle.

To do this, SKYACTIV includes several elements that have been optimized to provide optimal performance. With SKYACTIV, you get the perfect combination of engines, technologies and gearboxes that have all been improved and optimized.


Mazda engineers have designed SKYACTIV engines to be more efficient and better perforimg. To do so, Mazda engineers have increased the compression ratio in addition to improving the flow of air in the exhaust system. The result is that SKYACTIV engines are able to extract as much energy as possible from every drop of fuel.

In the end, we get even more performance while reducing fuel consumption. There are several SKYACTIV engines, including the powerful 2.5-litre turbo which develops 250 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque, but they all offer the same benefits.

SKYACTIV also includes the unique G-Vectoring Control technology. The GVC system is able to improve occupant comfort by using engine torque to reduce the vibrations and movements we feel inside the vehicle.

The end result is a more stable vehicle that provides a greater sense of comfort to both the driver and passengers. To learn more about G-Vectoring Control and SKYACTIV technology, contact us today at Beauport Mazda.
