The Japanese based automaker Mazda has officially introduced a brand new 1.5 liter four-cylinder SKYACTIV-D clean diesel engine which will be making its way under the hood of the next-gen Mazda2.

Mazda has officially pulled the wraps off its newest creation, a 1.5 liter four-cylinder SKYACTIV-D diesel engine, which, according to the car manufacturer, it will be first used on the next generation of the Mazda2, or the Demio, as it is also being known. The new unit is meeting the Euro 6 emission standards and it is coming with a variable turbine geometry turbocharger, with water cooled intercooler created into the intake manifold, rotation sensor and some other tweaks.

The lower mechanical resistance and the improved combustion efficiency have been lowered by engineers, who have managed to install the water control valves and the water jacket spaces in the unit’s cooling system. The 1.5 liter SKYACTIV-D engine has a 1,497 cc displacement and it is producing a total output of 105 HP (77 kW), at 4,000 rpm, along with a peak torque of 250 Nm (184 lb-ft), available between 1,500 and 2,500 rpm. The new-gen Mazda2, equipped with this engine, is said to become the most economical diesel-powered model in Japan.
