Mazda3 ENGINE and its DRIVE TECHNOLOGIES Presented
This All-New Mazda3 brings together a long term vision for sustainability and a desire to deliver an outstanding driving experience.
Featuring best-in-class Skyactiv technology, Mazda engines deliver the benefits of petrol driven power for superior performance and driving pleasure of unprecedented quality.
Mazda’s sustainability strategy is expressed in its ‘Sustainable Zoom-Zoom 2030’ long term technology development programme. As part of this vision for solving issues that impact the earth, Mazda applies a wheel to wheel philosophy. This end-to-end approach looks at carbon dioxide emissions throughout all stages of fuel extraction and vehicle operation.
Viewed from this holistic perspective, internal combustion engines are forecast to continue powering most of the world’s motor vehicles in the future – Mazda will therefore work continually to improve the combustion efficiency and performance of its engines.
At the same time, its engineers will gradually integrate electric drive technologies, such as the mild hybrid system used by the Mazda3’s Skyactiv-G 2.0 engine and the new Skyactiv-X engine.
Let’s take a closer look at this redesigned combustion engine from the showroom perspective.
SKYACTIV-G 2.0 PETROL ENGINE WITH MILD HYBRID TECHNOLOGY
The All-New Mazda3 features Mazda’s latest Skyactiv-G 2.0 high-efficiency direct injection petrol engine assisted by Mazda’s new M Hybrid system. The result is a dynamic performance combined with excellent fuel economy and low particulate matter exhaust emissions.
The unit develops 122 PS at 6,000 rpm and maximum torque of 213 Nm at 4,000 rpm. It combines an average fuel consumption of 6.0-6.7 l/100 km with CO2 emissions of 136-152 g/km. This clean and efficient engine comes with a six-speed Skyactiv-Drive automatic transmissions.
Compared to previous iterations of the Mazda3, an upgraded piston skirt and optimised oil ring profile reduce mechanical friction with the Skyactiv-G 2.0 engine. The coolant control system for thermal management promotes quick engine warm-up to reduce fuel consumption.
Combustion noise has been refined and enhanced efficiency achieved through the optimisation of the piston top profile and multi-stage injection. And high pressure fuel atomisation from the injectors increases combustion efficiency by preventing fuel adhesion to the combustion chamber walls.
Increased torque across the rpm range offers a dynamic performance that further strengthens the Jinba Ittai bond between car and driver.
