Mazda Once Again Delivers Most MPG in Overall Lineup

Mazda scored the highest overall “Manufacturer Adjusted Fuel Economy” rating from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for the fifth year in a row. The company’s overall average fuel economy rating was an outstanding 29.6, up almost half a mile per gallon from the previous year. The company is able to achieve these high mileage numbers without sacrificing performance, providing a dynamic driving experience for customers while still helping to preserve the Earth’s beauty. Learn more about the different models and how they rank for fuel mileage when you spend some time at Chapman Mazda on Bell Road.

Built for Handling and Efficiency

With the exception of a couple of the larger SUVs, every Mazda vehicle is somewhere in the 30-40 mpg range on the highway. Even the flagship CX-9, a people and cargo hauler that’s the largest vehicle in the lineup, rates 28 mpg on the highway. The secret is the company’s devotion to SKYACTIV technology, a philosophy that makes every component integrate seamlessly with other related components. This innovative combination of chassis, body and engine provides superior handling along with supreme performance in the areas of safety and environmental consciousness. Mazda continues to work towards a transportation future where vehicles, people and the planet can coexist in a healthful way.

SKYACTIV-X to Improve Efficiency

Mazda is currently developing a new line of engines that will utilize homogenous charge compression ignition (HCCI) to produce even more efficiency, moving the gasoline powered cars into the hybrid range of 40 mpg plus. It’s coming for the 2020 model year, putting another technological feather in the company’s cap. The gasoline engine functions much like a diesel, in that it has a very lean mixture of air and fuel that ignites solely by compression. This means the engine requires less fuel to create the same amount of energy. Other companies have tried HCCI before, but Mazda has had success in testing using a different procedure, increasing the compression ratio inside the combustion chamber. Final testing is underway and the company says it is on track to release the new technology for 2020.

Technology Not Limited to Efficiency

Mazda celebrates drivers and wants to enhance every customer’s driving experience. That’s why they offer technology to make your daily drive more pleasant, including a 360 degree camera, large 8-inch infotainment display and heated and ventilated front seats in certain models. Mazda now offers Radar Cruise Control that has the ability to stop and go, based on the distance from you and the car immediately ahead of you. It works from 18-90 mph, keeping you a safe distance and eliminating the stress of stop and go traffic. See all the features and enjoy the test drive when you visit Chapman Mazda on Bell Road.
