The diesel engine finally arrives at Gyro Mazda! Starting in 2018, Mazda’s own SKYACTIV-D technology will be available under the hood of the new Mazda CX-5 compact sport utility vehicle. In other words, it will be as fun to drive as you would expect from Mazda, but with even better fuel economy.


The Mazda CX-5 SKYACTIV-D’s engine will join both the 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter traditional gas-powered SKYACTIV engines when it arrives in dealerships in a few months.


Mazda is at the forefront of technology with SKYACTIV-D


As a new member of the SKYACTIV engine family, this 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel engine is a small revolution in the world of diesel vehicles.


By adopting the lowest compression ratio in the world for a diesel engine, SKYACTIV-D technology is able to achieve a 20% lower fuel economy than the previous generation.


The compression ratio has a big role to play in this huge improvement, but that’s not all. The new Mazda diesel engine has also been lightened by 25 kilos thanks to an increase use of aluminum. Some components such as pistons have lost 25 percent of their weight in the development of this engine.


Pollutant emissions are also greatly reduced thanks to the SKYACTIV-D technology, allowing this new engine to meet all environmental standards without any issues.


Performance still at the heart of Mazda’s SKYACTIV-D engine


At Mazda, nothing is ever done to the detriment of driving pleasure, even improving fuel economy. And while the new SKYACTIV-D diesel engine promises to be exceedingly fuel-efficient, it will also deliver the liveliness worthy of Mazda products.


Thanks to the use of a turbocharger, the Mazda diesel engine will not skimp on performance. You would expect nothing less from Mazda, whose reputation has certainly been established for a long time in terms of driving pleasure.


Clean, efficient and economical, the new SKYACTIV-D diesel technology is certainly not lacking any arguments to convince buyers.
