Mazda6 Has SKYACTIV Technology

2014 MAZDA6

Mazda6 Has SKYACTIV Technology

The Mazda6 is a mid-size sedan that has a lot to offer. For one, it has something called SKYACTIV technology. To me, that makes it sound like this car can fly… maybe not literally, but the Mazda6 can zip down the road on just a sip of gas.

SKYACTIV technology uses lightweight materials and high-tech power to make the car drive faster while using less gas. The 2014 Mazda6 SKYACTIV gets 38 mpg on the highway, all without using a battery, having to charge, and only using regular gasoline. This sounds pretty great to me. And, best of all, you don’t have to pay hybrid or electric car prices to get this efficiency.

While you may think all this efficiency might make the Mazda6 boring to drive, it is actually quite spirited with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 184 horsepower. With sporty looks outside and in, the mid-sized sedan has an elegant design with lots of room for passengers and cargo.

Bakersfield Mazda has a large inventory of the 2014 Mazda6 with SKYACTIV technology. Come see the style and efficiency for yourself.

Think Long Term Affordability with a Mazda


Mazda Brand is Most Affordable in the Long Term

Mazda Brand is Named by Kelley Blue books as Most Affordable Brand Long Term


When you think of Mazda, a number of things come to mind; fun, quirky, stylish, and efficient, just to name a few.  With all of these attributes, the affordability of a Mazda is truly remarkable.  Recently, Kelley Blue Book awarded Mazda a 2013 5-Year Cost to Own Award, naming the brand as one of the most affordable over five years.

To calculate the cost of ownership, KBB combines a number of factors including depreciation, maintenance and repair fees, fuel cost, insurance and financing.  This is an important tool for buyers, because with some car brands, the initial purchase price may be low, but the cost of ownership could sky-rocket with repairs and fuel costs.  Mazda shoppers don’t have to worry about that though.

“Budget-conscious drivers want quality vehicles that are easy to maintain and worth more when it’s time to trade in, and that’s why more and more motorists are turning to Mazda.  The best part is that you can have the performance and quality you want while still getting class-leading fuel economy, which is a total win-win for people who want to actually enjoy driving,” commented Tom McGovern, General Manager of a Chicago Mazda dealer.

Congratulations, Mazda on the 5-Year Cost to Own Award. If you are looking for an affordable, fun and efficient new ride, then Mazda is your best choice.  Stop by our dealership, Bakersfield Mazda, to browse our extensive inventory of new and used Mazda vehicles.
