Inside Mazda

How can the right kind of pressure create a better-driving SUV?

If you want more power out of your garden hose, you put your thumb over the nozzle. It’s the same principle we used to get more power out of our first-of-its-kind four-cylinder dynamic pressure turbo engine in the all-new Mazda CX-9.

By using a valve to increase the velocity of exhaust leaving the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T engine and recirculated through the turbo, turbo lag is virtually eliminated. So you get more power at a lower RPM. And because it’s lighter, you get best-in-class EPA-estimated combined MPG1 with effortless, linear acceleration, the moment you step on the pedal. It’s a powerfully simple idea.
