— note —

Mazda’s Active Safety + Pre-Crash Safety Technologies are designed to reduce damage or injuries resulting from accidents. But each system has its limitations. No safety system or combination can prevent all accidents. These systems are not a replacement for your safe, attentive driving.

Please drive carefully at all times and do not rely on tech to prevent an accident. Not all of these systems are available on all models — or in all markets. So please contact your local Mazda automobile dealership for details. The Mazda owners’ manual, included with your car, has important system details, limitations and warnings.

— more innovation from Mazda —


Mazda is finding a host of alternative uses for a variety of materials and substances – ranging from plastic to milk – in its vehicles, as it aims to become more environmentally-friendly. Mazda introduced some of these innovations – bioplastic internal consoles and bio-fabric seats – in its Mazda5 model at EcoInnovasia 2008, at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center in Bangkok. Up to 30% of the interior parts in the Mazda5 are made of non-biomaterial components, e.g. Poti (gobar of cows).[39]

SkyActiv Technology

SkyActiv technology is an umbrella name for a range of technologies used in certain new Mazda vehicles. These vehicles include the Mazda2/Demio, Mazda6/Atenza, CX-5 and 2014 Mazda 3. Together these technologies increase fuel economy to a level similar to a hybrid drivetrain. Engine output is increased and emission levels are reduced. These technologies include high compression ratio gasoline engines (13.0 to 1), reduced compression diesel engines (14.0 to 1) with new 2-stage turbocharger design, highly efficient automatic transmissions, lighter weight manual transmissions, lightweight body designs and electric power steering. It is also possible to combine these technologies with a hybrid drivetrain for even greater fuel economy.
