Mazda sets sights on fru­gal power

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

MAZDA’S CX-5, here in spring, in­tro­duces the brand’s SKYAC­TIV tech­nol­ogy, aimed to com­bine per­for­mance with class-lead­ing econ­omy from new petrol and diesel en­gines.

It is a Ja­panese equiv­a­lent of BMW’S Ef­fi­cient Dy­nam­ics sys­tem. Its ri­vals in­clude the Ford Kuga (soon to be re­placed) and the Toy­ota RAV4. Key el­e­ments in­clude high com­pres­sion ra­tios of 14:1 that raise torque and econ­omy by 15 per cent on the petrol en­gine and 20 per cent on the diesel.
