Mazda has announced the main features and keys of its new e-Skyactiv D diesel engine. A 3.3-liter six-cylinder in-line block that stands out for having ultra-low emissions thanks to the new DCPCI combustion technology. An engine that will be offered in two power variants. The new Mazda CX-60 will be the first model to release it.
The car industry in Europe is moving away from diesel. However, there are still manufacturers who continue to bet on this fuel, which has been playing a leading role in the sector. Mazda is one of the brands committed to diesel. And proof of this is its new engine that will soon be available at dealerships in the Old Continent. Mazda has announced the keys to its new e-Skyactiv D 3.3-liter six-cylinder in-line diesel engine.
This completely new engine stands out, among other things, for its very low level of emissions. Ultra-low emissions thanks to the new DCPCI clean combustion technology (Compression Ignition Controlled by Distribution with Partial Premix). The engine will debut in the latest member of Mazda’s SUV range, the new CX-60. Let’s go into detail.
Mazda’s new diesel engine with up to 254 hp
The introduction of the new e-Skyactiv D 3.3-liter six-cylinder diesel engine that we will soon see in the Mazda CX-60 aims, according to the company, to meet the needs of customers who are looking for an efficient car to cover long distances and with a great towing capacity. The new e-Skyactiv D engine consists of a 3.3-litre six-cylinder in-line diesel engine which, thanks to DCPCI technology, will be able to comply with the Euro 7 emissions standard which will soon come into force.
The engine has been carefully sized, optimizing the displacement to improve both torque delivery efficiency and fuel consumption. It has electronically controlled direct injection through a common rail system. It will be available in the CX-60 range in two power versions, 200 hp with rear-wheel drive and 254 hp with all-wheel drive i-Activ AWD..
In the 200 hp variant, the new CX-60 will declare an average fuel consumption of 4.9 liters per 100 kilometers and CO2 emissions of 127 g/km according to the WLTP cycle. The 254 hp model will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 219 km/h. Some very interesting benefits while the established average consumption is 5.3 l/100 km and 127 g/km of CO2 emissions. The CX-60 equipped with this diesel engine can easily handle a 2,500-kilogram trailer.
Electrification in Mazda’s new diesel engine
Another of the determining keys of this new diesel engine is that it is electrified. It is complemented by a 48-volt mild hybrid (MHEV) system. A technology that Mazda calls M Hybrid Boost. Therefore, as it is electrified, in Spain it will wear the ECO environmental label of the DGT (Directorate General of Traffic) with all the mobility advantages that this entails.
Launch date of Mazda’s new diesel engine
When will it be available? Mazda has confirmed that its new diesel engine will be available in Europe from next January 2023. As has been pointed out throughout this article, the CX-60 will be the first model to incorporate it into its mechanical offer.
