Also making its debut was Mazda’s new diesel engine, an all-new small-displacement clean diesel engine, the SKYACTIV 1.5. Like the existing SKYACTIV 2.2 shows, Mazda says that even the 1.5 will have the same level of high efficiency.

The new SKYACTIV is a diesel engine that has been developed by Mazda to solve the traditional problems of conventional diesel engines. Mazda has altered the injection characteristics, injectors, utilised a variable valve lift to solve a misfiring problem, a lower compression ratio in order to reduce the weight of the engine and finally, and use a two-stage turbocharger.

  1. Fred says:

    Are Mazda going to fix the oil rising/contamination issue that plagues the CX5 and Mazda6?

    The active regenerations cause diesel to get into the oil sump and dilute the oil. Ultimately causing premature engine wear and potential failure.

    Avoid any Mazda diesel!
