Mazda has confirmed that its new 1.5 litre Skyactiv-D diesel engine, revealed with the Hazumi concept in March, is bound for production.

As expected, the new mill will figure among the engine options of the next-generation Mazda2, although it is likely that Europe and Japan will be the only markets to see this new combination.

Australian buyers however could see the compact new diesel offered with the larger Mazda3 in a model positioned below the upcoming XD Astina model.

While the up-spec XD Astina’s 2.2 litre diesel will offer 129kW and 420Nm of torque, the smaller 1.5 diesel will offer 77kW at 4000rpm and 250Nm between 1500 and 2500rpm.

Like the bigger diesel, the Euro 6-compliant 1.5 litre engine boasts a low compression ratio, 14.8:1 in this case.

The direct-injected four-cylinder engine features a 76mm bore and 82.5mm stroke. There’s also a variable-geometry turbo with rotation sensor and a liquid-cooled intercooler integrated with the intake mainfold.

Six-speed manual and automatic transmissions will be offered with the new engine.

"The SkyActiv-D 1.5 will ensure the all-new Mazda2 achieves among the highest level test mode fuel economy figures for a vehicle powered solely by combustion engine in registered vehicles excluding hybrid and micro-mini vehicles in Japan, as well as drastically improved practical fuel economy," Mazda said in a release today.

Exact fuel figures are still to be revealed, although reports suggest numbers in the neighbourhood of 3.5 l/100km and CO2 emissions below 90g/km.

Helping to keep the engine's fuel use down will be Mazda's i-Stop idle stop/start system, along with the i-ELOOP regenerative braking system.

Watch for details of the new Mazda2 - and a possible Australian introduction for the smaller diesel in the new Mazda3 range - over the coming months.
