The Mercury Cars Guide : March 27th 2010
Saturday, March 27, 2010 Classifieds 62 300 400 • carsguide.com.au ---3 the boot in to help lift sales ECONOMICAL: Mazda believes their latest models such as the Mazda2 sedan will meet strict new emissions targets. The Sky's the limit MAZDA Australia believes it will meet new fuel economy and CO2 emissions targets to be announced by the Federal Government at the end of the month. Company boss Doug Dickson believes the format for the targets will be similar to Europe where average targets across a manufacturer's range are set. I am confident we will reach those targets even without Sky (Mazda's next-generation engines and transmissions),'' Dickson says. Sky is coming in 2011 globally and it's still to be decided when it will come here,'' he says. Company spokesman Steve McIver says they don't see any problem reaching targets in the short term. If we need Sky to meet the targets we will work toward getting it.'' The SKY-G petrol engine develops 15 per cent more torque and 15 per cent better fuel economy while the SKY-D diesel engine improves economy by 20 per cent. SKY-Drive is a six-speed automatic transmission that Mazda claims will have a similar driving feel to a dual clutch transmission. Mazda claims it will improve fuel economy by 5 per cent compared to the current torque-converter automatic-transmission. These drivetrains will be linked to weight reduction methods for all next- generation vehicles, improved aerodynamic design to reduce drag, and devices such as a stop/start system called i-stop. Mazda claims by 2015, Sky technologies will improve the average fuel economy of their product line-up by 30 per cent, with a drop in CO2 emissions of 23 per cent compared with 2008.
