Award-winning Mazda models like the 2015 Mazda6 offer a class-leading driving experience as well as incredible efficiency that is provided by Mazda Skyactiv Technology. Mazda Skyactiv weaves its way into the framework of Mazda models including the chassis design. A 30% more rigid frame that sheds over 200 pounds couples with Skyactiv suspension features for one of the most athletic, agile rides on the road as well as better efficiency due to the lighter frame.

The nuts and bolts of the Skyactiv system are the engines, designed to maximize fuel economy and make Mazda models such as the 2014 Mazda3 more eco-friendly. Mazda models incorporate high-compression 13:1 ratio, direct-injected engines that are some of the most efficient available. Innovative Mazda Skyactiv transmissions are also designed to work in tandem with Skyactiv engines to offer smooth transitions of power and increase fuel economy by 4 to 7 percent. Mazda Skyactiv Technology also employs high-tech Brake Regenerative Braking Systems to even further increase fuel economy.

In comparison, Ford EcoBoost engines are simply direct-injected, turbo-charged engines that,while they offer more power, cannot compare to the all-inclusive advantages provided by Mazda Skyactiv Technology. Skyactiv-driven Mazda models provide smooth transmissions and a chassis that glides down the street. Pairing those elements with highly-efficient Skyactiv power options make Mazda models some of the best available with incredible efficiency and fuel economy.
