First drive: Mazda SKYACTIV Technology

Martyn Collins

Mazda has given previews of its cars of the future with early drives of petrol and diesel prototypes fitted with SKYACTIV technology.

This is more than a selection of new engines and transmissions designed to reduce Co2 and improve economy. With SKYACTIV technology, Mazda has looked hard at how its cars are produced and improved their economy whilst claiming that driveability has also been raised.
