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

The best of diesel and petrol in one
Skyactiv-X is a high-revving, powerful petrol engine, but sips fuel like a diesel. It’s responsive, efficient and more environmentally friendly.
