The SkyActiv 2.0-L gasoline engine in the 2013 CX-5 is rated at 155 hp (116 kW) and 150 lb•ft (203 N•m).

Mazda Corp. announced that production of SkyActiv engines will double in October. Current production is 400,000 units for global distribution; production will increase to 800,000 units. In the U.S., the 2012 Mazda3 and 2013 CX-5 feature SkyActiv-G 2.0-L gasoline engines. In other markets, the SkyActiv-D engine is available on Mazda2 and CX-5 vehicles. SkyActiv technology is the brand's proprietary engineering and development of fuel-efficient, performance-oriented vehicles as a result of lightweight and redesigned engines, transmission, chassis, and body structures. With SkyActiv technology at the forefront of the brand's evolution, by 2015 Mazda plans to increase fuel efficiency by 30% (when compared to 2008 figures) for all its vehicles offered globally. This will correspond to a 23% reduction in fuel consumption and subsequently lower CO2 output.
