Mazda’s SKYACTIV Technology’s Popularity Rising In Canada

It looks like Mazda may have hit the sweet-spot in Canada with its SKYACTIV lineup.

SKYACTIV Technology maintained its prominence in Mazda sales in Canada, with 56 percent of the 5,220 Mazda vehicles sold in November being equipped by said technology.

The Mazda3 with SKYACTIV Technology also dominated the sales figures, representing over 70 percent of all 2,752 Mazda3s sold in Canada in November.

This is good news for the company’s future lineup. Mazda showed last week the North American-spec 2014 Mazda6 at the Los Angeles Auto Show, which will be available with a 2.2L SKYACTIV-D clean diesel engine in the second half of 2013. Other SKYACTIV news from the Los Angeles Auto Show included the updated 2014 CX-5, which will be available next year with a new 2.5L SKYACTIV-G engine.
