Spark Controlled Compression Ignition combines the fuel-efficiency of a diesel with the power and drivability of a petrol engine. The engine switches seamlessly between conventional spark ignition and a compression ignition mode where a lean fuel-air mix is compressed so that it will combust even more efficiently. It’s the best of both worlds.
The Skyactiv-X engine is 20% more fuel efficient and provides 30% more power than it's predecessors. A high-revving, powerful petrol engine, but sips fuel like a diesel. It’s responsive, efficient and more environmentally friendly.
