One of the key reasons why people choose Mazda is because of their road civility. They offer first-rate highway acceleration and they hold the corners well and with very little sway. The ride is tranquil and transmits confidence over any road condition. Beginning in 2011 they added yet another good motive to buy Mazda - SkyActiv.
K&N Replacement Air Filter Front for Mazda3 and Mazda5
Currently, 95% of the world uses gasoline or diesel combustion engines, and by 2020, 90% still will. This is why Mazda developed SkyActiv, a series of technologies designed to increase both fuel efficiency, and engine output. The SkyActiv-G 2.0 engine was first available in North America on the 2012 Mazda3, and it hit the market internationally a year before in both the Mazda3 and Mazda5 models. The engine is an engineering marvel that produces more low/mid-range torque and fewer emissions while consuming less fuel.
The revolutionary new engine then required the ultimate transmission to get that precious energy to the wheels. Mazda studied every modern transmission made and employed the best features of each to come up with the SkyActiv -Drive six-speed automatic transmission. It shifts smoothly for steady acceleration and quickly for the connected feel of a manual transmission but with far greater efficiency.
