Power Meets Efficiency with SKYACTIV Technology in the 2016 Mazda CX-5
SKYACTIV technology is at the heart of most Mazda vehicles on sale today in Saint John -- it's what defines Mazda and allows it to set itself apart in a competitive market. The idea behind SKYACTIV is to make major mechanical components lighter and more efficient which means that you get the most power out of each drop of fuel. The engines, for example, feature one of the highest compression ratios not only in their respective segments, but also in the industry as a whole. This means that you get more power out of one drop of fuel, so you can achieve impressive performance without added fuel consumption. The transmissions have also been designed to be lighter and more compact, thus reducing weight while improving fuel economy.
Two engines and two drivetrains, along with two transmissions, are offered in the 2016 Mazda CX-5. Buyers get a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine standard which offers 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a six-speed manual standard. The other option is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque. With a six-speed automatic and all-wheel drive, this engine still achieves 7.9 liters per 100 kilometers average fuel consumption on the highway.
