SKYACTIV Efficiency

Mazda3 achieves outstanding fuel economy

A fundamental redesign of the internal combustion engine lifts performance, while cutting fuel consumption by up to 25% over the previous model.

At the same time, we’ve advanced both manual and automatic transmissions to enhance driving enjoyment and improve fuel economy.

Our clever i-stop system reduces fuel consumption

Come to a stop and i-stop automatically turns off your engine to save fuel. The engine is perfectly positioned to leap back into action, so restarting takes much less time than conventional systems.

SKYACTIV Chassis

SKYACTIV-Chassis

We’ve re-examined every component to strengthen the sense of ‘oneness’ between car and driver. For nimble handling and refinement, the lightweight front strut and rear multi-link suspension uses firmer bushings and totally revised geometry. Innovative welding of the front and rear cross members achieves impressive stiffness with low weight. Fuel-saving electric power-assisted steering features a high ratio for quick handling, yet delivers great stability at all speeds.
