Drive the Mazda 6 around Canada and you will be taking advantage of truly impressive fuel economy. The money you save at the pump can easily be used elsewhere, making the Mazda truly valuable.  Among other sedans of the same size, the Mazda stands out with its great numbers, whether or not you pick a model with the available i-ELOOP technology. This i-ELOOP technology is designed to utilize fuel for the most essential elements and not waste it.

The Numbers

To get an idea of how efficient the 2016 Mazda 6 is, it helps to take a look at its gas mileage numbers. The numbers don’t lie and will give you a good idea of what you can expect when driving your new Mazda 6.  All models run on the same 2.5-liter SkyActiv 4-cylinder engine but the numbers vary based on transmission and whether you have i-ELOOP technology with the vehicle. The standard SkyActiv-MT 6-speed manual transmission gives you 9.4 L/100km in the city and 6.4 L/100km on the highway. If you choose the SkyActiv-Drive 6-speed automatic, the numbers improve to 8.8 and 6.1 L/100km in the city and highway, respectively.

Pick a model with i-ELOOP and you get a truly impressive 8.5 L/100km in the city and 5.9 L/100km on the highway. These variations will allow you to select the right model and save as much money with your fuel economy as possible. It’s important to be aware that there is a range of maintenance you will also want to keep up with to insure your Mazda 6 consistently sees this kind of fuel economy. Steps like keeping your tires properly inflated, changing filters and oil will help your Mazda maintain its efficiency.

i-ELOOP

One of the most important fuel efficient features in the 2016 Mazda 6 is the available i-ELOOP technology. This system is included in the Technology Package for the GT trim and is a regenerative braking system. Essentially, it collects the unused kinetic energy when you decelerate your Mazda 6 and stores it as electricity in a capacitor. Later, when you are accelerating, the system uses this electricity to power electrical components so the engine doesn’t have to work as hard and move the vehicle as well as run your audio system.

SkyActiv Technology

The 2.5-liter engine in the Mazda 6 is also incredibly efficient. It relies on SkyActiv technology to improve performance as well as efficiency. The 13.0:1 compression ratio helps the engine get more energy from every single drop of fuel. In other words, it needs less fuel to produce the same amount of energy, improving your fuel economy. For a better idea or to have all your questions answered head out to your nearby Mazda dealer. Their highly trained staff will be more than happy to walk you through the impressive fuel economy and the savings you can have. The dealership can also set you up with a test drive so you can have an understanding of how smooth the Mazda is to drive.
