Behind the Muscle of the Skyactiv-G 2.0L Engine

The design of the Skyactiv-G 2.0L gasoline engine featured in the Skyactiv models for the 2012 Mazda3 and 2013 Mazda CX-5 offers drivers fuel economy without sacrificing performance. This engine achieves up to a 15% increade in torque and 15% less fuel consumption compared to Mazda's MRZ 2.0L gasoline engine. Mazda was able to engineer this performance upgrade by including direct injection, an ultra-high 13:1 compression ratio, an advanced piston design, and a specially tuned exhaust system. These changes lightened the engine by 10% and decresed internal friction by 30% making a quieter smoother ride. The 2012 Mazda3 and 2013 Mazda CX-5 are currently the only two Skyactiv techonology models available at this time.
