With the launch of the all-new Mazda CX-5 (pictured) - the first production model to feature Skyactiv technology – later this month, Mazda authorised repairers are now ready to service and repair vehicles with Skyactiv technology.
Skyactiv “optimises existing standard technology – internal combustion and lightweight engineering – while delivering customer savings through excellent fuel economy and low emissions, without compromising on performance” according to David Wilson-Green, aftersales director at Mazda.
Mazda’s network of approved bodyshops is equipped for repairing high-tensile steel featured in the body of the CX-5.
The proportion of high-tensile steel has grown from 40% to 60% and the weight of the car has reduced 8% while increasing the strength.
Having a lighter car should mean less wear and tear on brakes and tyres.
Service intervals for Skyactiv vehicles stay the same at 12,500 miles/annually.
Mazda's ‘fix it right first time' policy continues.
