Breakthrough Innovations

Most manufacturers innovate by reworking existing machinery, but Mazda innovates by going back to the drawing board and working from scratch to produce outstanding SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY for Manteca and Stockton drivers. It’s the reason why Mazda models feel so thoroughly cutting-edge, taking steps forward in terms of efficiency and emissions-reduction without ever sacrificing driving performance.

SKYACTIV-G Gasoline Engine


The engine is the heart of your vehicle, and Mazda has made it stronger and more efficient.

For instance, consider the conventional internal combustion engine. It harnesses only 30% of the fuel’s potential energy. The engineers at Mazda decided to tackle this issue, so they developed the SKYACTIV®-G gasoline engine. This engineering marvel generates more low/mid-range torque while consuming less fuel and producing reduced emissions, compressing the air-fuel mixture in the cylinders to take every last ounce of energy from every last drop of fuel.


A revolutionary engine deserves a state-of-the-art transmission to deliver its advanced efficiency to the wheels of your vehicle. The team at Mazda painstakingly studied every modern transmission ever produced, picking out the best features of each and then taking them further. The results are two exceptional transmissions that are leading the automotive industry.


The SKYACTIV®-Drive six-speed automatic transmission uses an advanced control module to shift smoothly and quickly; in fact, its precision and expanded lockup range of more than 80% makes it feel more like a manual transmission. At the same time, it delivers supreme fuel economy at low speeds.

The SKYACTIV®-MT manual transmission is lighter and more compact than other transmissions on the market, with each component enjoying a weight reduction of up to 16% as well as dramatic size reduction. Shifting feels crisp and effortless, while the change in gear ratio produces a direct sense of power that’s more comparable to driving a sports car than a standard sedan.



Going back to basics means more than providing Manteca and Stockton drivers with a reimagined powertrain. The philosophy of SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY also improves the structure of Mazda vehicles. The ideal platform combines lightweight properties with dependable rigidity, so Mazda cut an incredible 220 pounds from the body and chassis, which led to dramatically improved driving dynamics. The results speak for themselves:

  • SKYACTIV®-Body: The SKYACTIV®-Body is a remarkable example of modern engineering. Weight has been cut by up to 8% and rigidity improved by 30% thanks to a framework makeover. That means stronger crash-safety performance and refined driving dynamics.
  • SKYACTIV®-Chassis: Manteca and Lanthrop drivers deserve agility at low-to-medium speeds and stability during high-speed cruising. Mazda adopted a lightweight, highly rigid cross member, completely redesigned the front and rear suspensions, and revamped the electric power steering system to optimize agility and stability.

i-ELOOP System

SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY seeks to harness the fullest potential of every single drop of fuel, so it makes sense to extend that philosophy to other parts of the vehicle to ensure that no energy is wasted.

The i-ELOOP system is the trailblazing result. Slowing down means losing energy, so Mazda SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY engineers developed a regenerative braking system to capture the vehicle’s kinetic energy and convert it into electricity. That energy is then used to power the car’s electronics so the engine doesn’t have to do it, which adds up to approximately five percent better fuel economy overall.
