Mazda Reveals Upgraded e-Skyactiv X Engines

Mazda e-skyactiv x

Mazda today announced that the 2021 Mazda3 and CX-30 models will be getting an upgraded version of its e-Skyactiv X SPCCI (Spark Controlled Compression Ignition) petrol engine in Europe.

The performance of the upgraded e-Skyactiv X unite engine has been improved to generate an extra 6 PS of power and 16 Nm of torque. Torque and output have improved in almost all engine speed ranges, and torque most noticeably under acceleration from low revs. The Mazda3 and CX-30 e-Skyactiv X now delivers 186 PS at 6,000 rpm and maximum torque of 240 Nm at 4,000 rpm.

mazda e-skyactiv x

A world’s first

Mazda’s new 2.0 litre e-Skyactiv X engine is in fact the world’s first production petrol unit to exploit the benefits of diesel-like compression ignition. Following the introduction of Skyactiv engine technologies in 2012, e-Skyactiv X represents Mazda’s second step towards the development of the ideal internal combustion engine.

The e-Skyactiv X engine also features Mazda’s revolutionary Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI). This new engineering concept allows the engine to switch seamlessly between conventional spark ignition and compression ignition combustion by using a spark to trigger both types of combustion in different ways.

mazda e-skyactiv x

SPCCI mode

In SPCCI mode, a split injection process creates separate zones of fuel-air mixture inside the combustion chamber. First, a very lean fuel to air mixture is injected into the combustion chamber during the intake stroke, then a zone of atomised fuel is precisely injected directly around the spark plug during the compression stroke.

The small injection of atomised fuel directly around the spark plug builds a richer core. When the spark fires, it ignites this core of fuel and air. This increases pressure in the combustion chamber to the point where the lean mixture rapidly combusts.

Allowing the engine to run for a high percentage of time in a very efficient mode, SPCCI works in almost all ranges of engine operation except during cold starts, initial warm-up phases and at very high load. Under these circumstances, the engine seamlessly switches to normal operation, igniting a conventional stoichiometric air and fuel mixture of 14.7:1.

Improvements in both power and efficiency have been achieved through adjusting e-Skyactiv X’s compression ratio from 16.3:1 to 15.0:1.

mazda e-skyactiv x

Modifications include the optimisation of combustion control, modified pistons, and the updating of the Mazda M Hybrid system software. Fitted as standard, the e-Skyactiv X’s Mazda M Hybrid system further enhances both efficiency and driving comfort.

This not only results in a broader operating band of combustion efficiency, but also effects even higher ignition stability – further minimising the already very low risk of unexpected self-ignition or pre-ignition due to the variability of fuel quality in different markets.


Mazda says that the e-Skyactiv X engine on the Mazda3 and the CX-30 will be available with either Skyactiv-MT 6-speed manual transmission (6MT) or Skyactiv-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission (6AT). The powertrain line-up features front-wheel-drive (FWD) as standard, with Mazda’s unique i-Activ all-wheel-drive (AWD) optionally available for Mazda3 hatchback variants and the CX-30.

At the moment, the new engines are only destined for Europe and a few selected markets. Whether they will come to Malaysia remains a question, so watch this space for more updates on the new engines.

Mazda’s “Kodo: Soul of Motion” Design Turns 10

Mazda Kodo

Exactly 10 years ago, Mazda stole the limelight at the 2010 Los Angeles International Motor Show with the unveiling of the stunning Shinari concept car, as it was like no other Mazda we’ve seen before.

Mazda Kodo Shinari

It was also the day Mazda’s “Kodo – Soul of Motion” design philosophy began its journey. As much as it feels like it was only yesterday, it has already been 10 years since we set eyes on the Kodo design.   

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Kodo was first unveiled in 2010 with Shinari, Mazda’s stunning four-door sports coupe concept which gave the world vision of an animal ready to pounce, foreshadowing an exciting future for Mazda design.

Mazda Kodo

The following year, Mazda teased the world with another example of Kodo Design with Minagi, a compact crossover SUV concept which later evolved into the award-winning Mazda CX-5

The first Kodo Designs were strongly inspired by the image of a cheetah about to pounce. Mazda designers closely observed how these powerful mammals used their entire body as a spring to convert pent-up energy into highly controlled motion.

Launched in 2012, the Mazda CX-5 was the first production vehicle to embody the Kodo Design, combining go-anywhere muscularity, hold-all functionality and appealing dynamism in equal measure. 

Following closely in the footsteps of the Shinari and Minagi concepts, the Takeri and Hazumi concepts carried the same expression of motion that focused on the strength, beauty and tension found in the instantaneous movement seen in animals.

Mazda Kodo CX-30

The Mazda Takeri offered a new level of strength and allure to the future of Mazda’s saloon styling, while the Hazumi concept (meaning to ‘bound’ or ‘spring up’ in Japanese) used Kodo Design to characterise the personality of a small but vigorous animal bursting with energy for Mazda’s next generation B-segment car. 

A turning point for Kodo Design was reached with the two awe-inspiring concept cars, RX-Vision and Vision Coupe, evoking a powerful and emotional design with as few elements as possible.

Launched in 2019, the latest generation Mazda3, which was inspired by the Kai Concept and was the first vehicle to showcase the latest evolution in the company’s ground-breaking Kodo Design – a more mature rendition targeting greater styling prestige through the elegance and rigor of a minimalist, less-is-more aesthetic inspired by the purest traditions of Japanese art and the beauty of space between objects. 

The most recent addition to Mazda’s current global line-up, the Mazda MX-30, breaks new ground for Kodo Design. Though retaining the beautiful, hand-crafted forms of Mazda’s design philosophy, the styling of the Mazda MX-30 represents an exploration of a more modern aesthetic which focuses on the futuristic values and lifestyles that are beginning to emerge.

Mazda Kodo Mazda3

While other Kodo models focussed on surface reflections, Mazda’s first fully-electric vehicle expresses Kodo Design in a more utilitarian way.

Since its inception ten years ago, Mazda’s Kodo Design philosophy has been the driving force behind multiple award-winning styling across the world. Both the RX-Vision and the Vision Coupe have being named the “Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year” and the revamped Mazda MX-5 won the “World Car Design Award” in 2015.

More recently, the Mazda CX-30 and the new MX-30 have won a Red Dot Award 2020 in the “Product Design” category, while the Mazda3 was named World Car Design of the year in the distinguished 2020 World Car Awards. 

Over the last ten years, Kodo Design has not just been confined to automotive design. In order to fulfil the promise of creating designs with a soul, the design team set up a process that combines creativity, craftsmanship and cooperation to explore the boundaries of Kodo Design.

Mazda CX-30 Conquers Kazakhstan

Mazda CX-30 Kazakhstan

As much as urban SUVs claim to be sporty, active, rugged and what not, not all of them are actually as capable as they claim to be.

More often than not, these crossovers are just jacked up versions of another sedan or hatchback in the brand’s portfolio that were built to function in urban surroundings and maybe an itsy bitsy bit of gravel and uneven surfaces.

Mazda CX-30 Kazakhstan

However, there are also some models that are more capable than we think, such as the Mazda CX-30, thanks to the i-Activ all-wheel drive system.

Mazda CX-30 Kazakhstan

The CX-30 and its all-wheel drive system was just put to the test as the SUV was driven from Eastern Kazakhstan to the border of China through more than 800 km of some truly challenging surroundings.

Mazda CX-30 kazakhstan

Carried out earlier this year before Covid-19 travel restrictions, this latest Mazda expedition follows the unique 2018 Siberian media drive, when Mazda became the first manufacturer to cross Lake Baikal in Siberia with standard production cars, creating a new route across its frozen surface in CX-5s again highlighting the ability of Mazda’s i-Activ all-wheel drive system.

Check out the video to see how the CX-30 conquered the expedition:


In its centenary year, Mazda’s latest challenging drive event has seen the Mazda CX-30 and its all-wheel drive system put to the test with a 520-mile drive across Eastern Kazakhstan to the border of China, taking in sections of the legendary Silk Road trading route to experience the barren beauty of remote central Asia.

Carried out earlier this year before Covid-19 travel restrictions, this latest Mazda expedition follows the unique 2018 Siberian media drive, when Mazda became the first manufacturer to cross Lake Baikal in Siberia with standard production cars, creating a new route across its frozen surface in CX-5s again highlighting the ability of Mazda’s i-Activ all-wheel drive system.

Mazda’s love of using a drive to challenge man and machine is as strong today as it was in 1936 when a group of pioneers set out to demonstrate the durability of Mazda’s first vehicle – a three-wheeled open truck called the Mazda Go. An early example of Mazda’s willingness to take on an ambitious drive, five Mazda-Go models (type KC and DC) set out from the southernmost tip of Japan’s main island chain, and showcased the Mazda Go over 1,680miles of dusty, muddy and backbone-rattling trails, arriving in Tokyo 25 days later. The publicity significantly boosted sales and raised the company’s profile, something Mazda would aim to repeat with later heroic drives.

In 1977 to promote the first-generation Mazda 323, a pair of 323 hatchbacks made the 9,320-mile journey from Hiroshima to their European premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Incredibly at the height of the Cold War, the two 323s drove through the Soviet Union, tackling poor roads and tough conditions to highlight the all-new hatchback’s reliability even before it went on sale. The famous 1977 expedition was echoed in 1990 when six Mazda vehicles (626s, 323s and E2200 vans) drove from Hiroshima to Mazda’s German headquarters in Leverkusen, this time through the dissolving Soviet Union. While in 2013, several third-generation Mazda3s repeated the factory to Frankfurt Motor Show excursion, driving through Russia, Belarus and Poland. 

Inspired by these challenging drives and public vehicle tests, today’s Mazda Epic Drive media events, allow journalists to experience challenging roads, amazing scenery and unique adventure from behind the wheel of a Mazda. Whether it’s lapping Iceland in an MX-5, savouring the twisting tarmac and volcanic beauty of the mid-Atlantic Azores in a Mazda2 or exploring the wonders of extreme road engineering through the tunnels, bridges and mountain passes in Norway – the modern Mazda epic drive delivers incredible journeys to media, at the same time as highlighting the driver-focused engineering that Mazda is known for.

Like the 2018 crossing of Lake Baikal with CX-5s, the 2020 Mazda CX-30 Epic Drive in Kazakhstan allowed for the perfect demonstration of Mazda’s i-Activ all-wheel drive system. Featuring Mazda’s new-generation Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture, the CX-30’s evolved generation of i-Activ AWD works in harmony with G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus) to control torque distribution between the front and rear wheels, to deliver an even more engaging driving experience.

Thanks to newly developed control system and new technologies to reduce friction, Mazda’s i-Activ AWD system delivers a refined and stable ride in any driving situation while also achieving real-world fuel economy almost on a par with a front-wheel drive vehicle. Mazda’s evolved four-wheel drive system adds ‘four-wheel vertical load’ detection and works in harmony with GVC (G-Vectoring Control) to control torque distribution between the front and rear wheels, enhancing traction and grip regardless of the driving scenario. It also significantly reduces overall mechanical loss and contributes to improved fuel economy.

Newly adopted friction-reducing technologies include a rubber damper inside the power take-off unit that greatly reduces fluctuations in input torque sent to the rear-wheel-drive unit, and a new setting that applies a slight difference in the deceleration ratio between the power take-off and rear differential. By quickly adjusting torque distribution only when necessary, the system features positive response and enhanced real-world fuel economy. The rear differential reduces mechanical loss by adopting ball bearings and the use of low-viscosity oil, along with a design that stores oil in the upper part and supplies just the necessary amount where and when required. Acting in combination, these measures increase the precision of the AWD control unit while significantly reducing overall mechanical losses.

At the beginning of a turn, the AWD system will maintain the existing front/rear torque distribution to prioritise better turning response through the GVC unit’s engine torque control. After the initial turn-in, the AWD system gradually increases the amount of torque sent to the rear wheels to realise neutral steering and more stable vehicle motion. Harmonisation with GVC also substantially improves rear torque response and linearity with respect to the driver’s accelerator inputs. When accelerating, more torque is distributed to the rear wheels, and more to the front wheels when decelerating, maximising the traction performance of all four tyres. It also improves controllability, so the vehicle responds faithfully to the driver’s intentions when engaging in active steering.

An all-wheel drive system designed to deliver real-world flexibility, the 520-mile Kazakhstan Epic Drive route offered a real mix of driving conditions to put it and the CX-30 to the test – from city streets to modern dual carriageways, to rutted tarmac and off-road gravel tracks this drive had it all.  

Starting in Almaty – Kazakhstan’s biggest city located on a plateau in the shadow of the mountainous Trans lli Alatau range in Southern Kazakhstan close to the border with Kyrgyzstan – the CX-30s left the modern heart of the city taking on ruthless traffic jams on the way out of the sprawling city and onto the modern A3 highway heading towards the Aityn Emel National Park. Here the CX-30s headed away from tarmac roads onto gravel roads for a dusty and challenging drive to the famous Singing Dune. While not an outright off-road SUV, the CX-30’s AWD system ensured excellent traction on the low grip Kazak National Park roads.

From the stunning 150m Singing Dune – named due to the way the winds and moving sands create an eerie almost chorus like sound-  the route headed back out of the sub-desert plains with their roaming camels to the town of Zharkent, which is just a stone’s throw from the Chinese border at the South Eastern edge of this vast country. On day two the Kazakhstan Epic Drive route took the cars south towards the Charyn Canyon and more challenging gravel roads through a series of incredible canyons that look strangely familiar to the wilds of Nevada yet sit in the heart of remote central Asia. After this the route headed west back towards Almaty skirting the vast Kapshagay Reservoir.

The Mazda CX-30s completed the Kazakhstan Epic Drive with ease, proving the adaptability of Mazda’s latest SUV and the abilities of the i-Activ AWD system. To experience the Mazda MX-30 Kazakhstan Epic Drive virtually, the full experience can be seen in this incredible film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRMcETWSSqo&feature=youtu.be

Exclusively matched with the 180ps Skyactiv-X engine and offered with a choice of automatic or manual transmissions, all-wheel drive CX-30s are available in Sport Lux, GT Sport and GT Sport Tech trim, while Mazda’s i-Activ AWD system is also available on GT Sport Tech Skyactiv-X Mazda3 hatchback, again with a choice of transmission. Step up to the Mazda CX-5 and all-wheel drive is offered matched to the 184ps Skyactiv-D engine in both Sport and GT Sport models.

Across, the Mazda CX-30 and Mazda CX-5 SUV range, and with the flagship GT Sport Tech Mazda3 hatchback, Mazda’s i-Activ all-wheel drive offers the security and reassurance of four-wheel drive grip combined with fuel-efficiency and improved driver engagement wherever you drive.
