Skyactiv-X | Underwoods Mazda

X= THE POWER TO MAKE A DIF­FER­ENCE

Skyactiv-X is an engine that changes everything. Our pioneering 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 it works

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

SPCCI combines the fuel-efficiency of a diesel with the power and drivability 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 world


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.
