i-stop is Mazda innovative, intelligent idle-stop system. Standard equipment on the all new Mazdas including the 2017 Mazda 6, it uses combustion energy for the restart. In addition to saving fuel, this enables some of the fastest restarts in the industry: 0.35 seconds for SKYACTIV-G petrol engines and only 0.40 seconds on SKYACTIV-D diesels. i-stop uses a refined control module to switch off the engine in the ignition/expansion stroke (petrol) or compression stroke (diesel), the optimum cycles for restarting. In fact, i-stop actually waits for the moment the cylinders are in the ideal restart position. And it only takes a spilt second.
The Mazda Kai Concept compact hatchback heralds a new generation of Mazda cars. Featuring the next-generation SKYACTIV-X gasoline engine, SKYACTIV-Vehicle Architecture and a more mature expression of the KODO design language, the model embodies the technology, engineering and design concepts that will define the next generation of Mazda cars. Refinements in all areas of dynamic performance have produced a dramatically quieter, more comfortable ride and an enhanced performance feel. The Mazda Kai Concept features muscular, solid proportions and its form is brought to life by a delicate flow of reflections over the body sides. Developers of the all-new Mazda CX-5 aimed to take the emotional appeal and powerful vitality the carmaker has pursued with its KODO - Soul of Motion designs to a yet higher level by creating a fresh expression of beauty that appeals to mature sensibilities. Aiming for a unique design only Mazda could produce, the development team started with a simple yet honed form free of non-essential elements, as is common in traditional Japanese crafts, choosing "refined toughness" as the design keyword.
All elements in front of the driver flow outward from the centre of the steering wheel, which has an invigorating effect while also creating in the cabin a roomy ambience and sense of width. The extraordinary depth of the seats together with the deeply chiselled climate control louvers express outstanding quality and durability. The decorative panel finishing blends the warmth of natural wood with the strength and resilience of metal. The three interior packages available feature pure white leather, black leather or black fabric. Different colours were used above and below the instrument panel to emphasise the sense of physical unity with the car and its interior roominess.
For greater convenience, the front of the taller floor console contains a pair of adjustable cup holders that sit side by side. With a capacity of 505 litres, the boot offers the same practicality as the current model 500 litres (DIN figures, including sub-trunk). The multi-information gauge on the right-hand side of the instrument cluster features a new 4.6-inch high-resolution colour TFT liquid crystal display. The Active Driving Display on the all-new Mazda CX-5 now projects important driving and navigation system information onto the windshield. Moving the 7-inch centre display to the top of the dashboard significantly reduces the amount of eye movement required by the driver. This independently mounted display is the first on a Mazda to use optical bonding to join the LCD to the touch panel, resulting in a clearer image.
