Skyactiv technology is being used to reduce internal friction and rotating mass, this increasing efficiency.

We already knew that the CX-7 crossover is getting axed, and this is mainly because the smaller CX-5 features more interior room and isn’t as much of an eyesore in our opinion.
Mazda is also discontinuing the use of the V6 engine, which right now is only available in the the Mazda6 sedan and the CX-9 crossover. Both are likely to receive hybrid four-cylinder engines instead.
