All About Mazda's Brand-New SKYACTIV®-Drive 6-Speed Automatic Transmission

Last updated 5 years ago

Traditionally, automatic transmissions have offered convenience, while manual transmissions offered power and efficiency. Mazda wanted to create a different kind of driving experience, marrying the ease of an automatic transmission with the superior responsiveness of a manual.

The result is the SKYACTIV-Drive 6-Speed automatic, which revolutionizes transmission design by incorporating both a clutch and a torque converter. New vehicles equipped with this transmission perform better at all speeds and can reduce fuel consumption by up to 7%. To learn more about this innovative technology from Mazda, click play on the video below.
