Best Fuel Efficiency

Creating the Best Fuel Efficiency vehciles, Mazda’s adjusted fleet-wide numbers ranked highest in mpg performance and lowest in CO2 emissions.

The company boasts 27.1 mpg in its 2012 model year vehicles, an increase of 2.1 miles per gallon over the 2011 models. According to the report, it is the second largest increase in the industry.

CO2 emissions were reported at 328, the lowest in the industry.

Mazda reached these record numbers through its award-winning SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY, which provides an affordable alternative for those shopping for a new car.

“While other manufacturers have turned their attention to hybrids and electric cars, we chose to focus on perfecting the base technology used in more than 90 percent of the cars and SUVs sold today: the internal combustion engine. Through analyzing and refining this technology, as well as every other component in a modern automobile, Mazda has been able to achieve class-leading fuel economy in nearly every segment it competes in, and bring that technology – at an affordable price – to every customer,” said Jim O’Sullivan, Mazda North American Operations president and CEO.
