Mazda’s hotly anticipated engine has been shrouded in mystery, at least in terms of numbers. But not anymore. A brochure from Slovakia reveals some telling specifications about Mazda's newest addition to its SkyActiv engine series – the SkyActiv-X.
Recapping a key feature over the brand's previous generation SkyActiv-G engines, the new generation power plant incorporates Mazda's new Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI). It is a technology that borrows an important part of the combustion cycle in diesel engines, which is compression. The higher compression ratio allows the air-fuel mixture to be leaner, resulting in a cleaner burn and more substantial horsepower and torque increases over the previous generation mills, all while keeping emissions low and fuel efficiency high.
According to the Slovakian brochure, the engine is tuned to make 178 hp and 222 Nm of torque. Although, It is hard to ascertain how much displacement the motor is running on.
As a reference, the previous generation 2.5L SkyActiv-G engine – found in the current generation CX-5 – makes 184 hp and 250 Nm of torque, and the current generation 2.0L SkyActiv-G engine, found in the current Mazda3, makes 150 hp and 200 Nm of Torque.
Since the SkyActiv-X’s numbers are from the European domestic market, it is not assured that it will come to the Philippines with the exact same horsepower and torque figures. It is uncertain whether a different tune will be put into Philippine domestic units upon the release of the next generation Mazda3. But if these numbers are an indication of what’s to come, then the future is looking bright for Mazda’s next generation line of SkyActiv engines.
