However, ask Sam Hortinella, CX-5 Product Development Engineer, and he will quickly tell you that there’s a lot more to SKYACTIV than just dropping in a lighter motor and transmission into a pre-existing platform. In fact, that’s an almost anti-SKYACTIV way of thinking.

“Basically, the name ‘SKYACTIV’ came from a feeling that the sky’s the limit,” he said.
