SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY

Reduced friction

Reduced friction

The SKYACTIV-G engine improves oil and water pump efficiency, and reduces friction in pistons, rods and crank shaft.

High efficiency

High efficiency

The 2.5 L SKYACTIV-G engine has a high compression ratio for superior fuel economy and low- and mid-range torque that surpasses conventional gasoline engines.

Improved torque

Improved torque

The SKYACTIV-G engine is the world’s first gasoline engine for mass-production vehicles that achieves a high compression ratio of 13:1, capturing more energy from fuel and improving efficiency and torque.

Raise the compression ratio

Raise the compression ratio

The dome-shaped pistons in the SKYACTIV-G engine raise the compression ratio, harnessing more energy from fuel.

Lower fuel consumption

Lower fuel consumption

The SKYACTIV-G 2.0 L engine produces more low/mid-range torque, yet has lower fuel consumption and emissions than our previous 2.0 L engine.

i-ELOOP Regenerative Braking

Don't stop at stopping
Saving engine power

Saving engine power

The i-ELOOP regenerative braking system stores kinetic energy created during deceleration. The stored energy is then used to power the vehicle’s electrical systems – saving engine power for driving.

Ingenious gas saver

Ingenious gas saver

The i-ELOOP regenerative braking system allows energy from gas to power vehicle propulsion only, rather than being wasted on powering the vehicle’s electrical system.
