Mazda Skyactiv-X

X = the power to make a difference

Skyactiv-X is an engine that changes everything. The pioneering Mazda engineers succeeded where others failed.

Skyactiv-X burns petrol more efficiently thanks to our Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI). It makes more power but produces fewer emissions and uses less fuel than a regular petrol engine for an even better drive without compromise.

How does it work?

Skyactiv-X uses a unique Mazda technology called Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI).

  • CO2 Emissions* = 96 g/km
  • Fuel Consumption Combined* = Up to 52.3 mpg
  • Maximum Output* = 180 ps / 132 kW

SPCCI combined the fuel-efficiency of a diesel with the power and drive-ability of a petrol engine. The engine switches seamlessly between conventional spark ignition and a compression ignition mode where a lean fuel-air mix is compressed so that it will combust even more efficiently. It's the best of both worlds.
