Mazda indicates that the development of the new sub-compact Mazda2 is based on the same engineering concepts as those found in larger new models, with new SKYACTIV engines, transmissions, body, and chassis.


Other new SKYACTIV technologies included in the new Mazda2 are the Mazda Connect car connectivity system (name adopted in Japan, USA, Canada and Mexico, and as MZD Connect in other markets) and a range of i-ACTIVSENSE active safety features to assist the driver in recognizing and responding to hazards.


Skyactiv-D 1.5

The Japanese carmaker specifies that the new Mazda2 will be available with its new direct injection gasoline (petrol) engines, the SKYACTIV-G 1.5 and SKYACTIV-G 1.3, as well as the new small-displacement SKYACTIV-D 1.5-liter clean diesel engine.


In Japan, Mazda2 will be available with the SKYACTIV-G 1.3-liter gasoline engine and the SKYACTIV-D 1.5-liter diesel. The latter is supposed to combine high fuel economy with a torque performance comparable to a 2.5-liter gasoline (petrol) engine.

Like the SKYACTIV-D 2.2 diesel engine available in the Mazda CX-5, the 1.5-liter SKYACTIV-D is designed to enhance the combustion process despite the very low compression ratio of 14.8 to 1 (very low for a diesel engine, among 2-liter engines or smaller, according to Mazda data as of June 1, 2014), to get a maximum torque equivalent to what is usually produced by a 2.5-liter gasoline engine, with a linear acceleration all the way up the RPM range.

Mazda adds that based on its in-house measurements, the new SKYACTIV-D 1.5 clean diesel engine meets Japan's Post New Long-term Emissions Regulations as a diesel-powered compact car, and the Euro6 emission standards, without an expensive NOx after treatment system.

Combined with Mazda's i-stop idling stop technology, i-ELOOP brake energy regeneration system, and SKYACTIV-DRIVE automatic transmission or SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission, Mazda promises that its new SKYACTIV-D 1.5 should achieve one of the best levels in Japan's JC08 test mode cycle standards for fuel economy figures, and that is for a vehicle powered solely by a combustion engine in registered vehicles excluding hybrid and micro-mini vehicles in Japan.
The Hiroshima-based company points out that a number of SKYACTIV-D 2.2 technologies were applied to make the SKYACTIV-D 1.5 suitable for subcompact vehicles. The cited technologies include "an expanded homogenous lean burn range, further reduction in mechanical resistance, and insulation technology to curb the increase in cooling loss associated with a smaller engine size."
