Mazda SKYACTIV-D 1.5-liter diesel engine to power the next-generation Mazda2

Article by Christian A., on June 13, 2014

The all-new Mazda2 will feature the SKYACTIV-D 1.5, Mazda’s new 1.5-liter clean diesel engine, when the next-generation model is initially launched in Japan. The SKYACTIV-D 1.5 was unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show in March alongside the Mazda Hazumi concept, which became the basis for the Mazda2.

The new engine – which shares with its the SKYACTIV-D 2.2 clean diesel fitted in the Mazda CX-5, Mazda6 and Mazda3 – was developed with an aim of achieving ideal combustion even in a very low compression ratio.

The SKYACTIV-D 1.5 features expanded homogenous lean burn range, less mechanical resistance, and new insulation technology that offset the increased cooling loss typical in a smaller engine.

This results to a clean and efficient engine that delivers excellent fuel economy and emissions. The engine also complies with Euro 6 sans exhaust after-treatment.

The all-new Mazda2 will also be available with either the six-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatic or the SKYACTIV-MT manual transmissions. The Mazda2 will also feature the i-stop idle-stop and i-ELOOP brake energy regeneration systems.

The carmaker expects all-new Mazda2 to return best fuel economy among conventional vehicles in Japan. Mazda also expects the SKYACTIV-D 1.to be also well-accepted in Europe. The Japanese carmaker is confident that all-new Mazda2 will also offer outstanding real-world fuel consumption as well as Mazda’s driving fun.
