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.
Short for "Intelligent Energy Loop", Mazda fuel-saving i-ELOOP brake energy regeneration system was the world first such passenger car technology to utilise a capacitor to store electricity recovered during braking. Mazda focused on the recurring deceleration and acceleration cycle of everyday driving conditions. Determining that a typical deceleration phase lasts only about 10 seconds, the company adopted an electric double-layer capacitor (EDLC) to quickly capture and temporarily store the recovered electricity rather than a dedicated lead-acid starter battery or lithium-ion unit.
Smart Brake Support (SBS) also widens its speed range for automatic braking, in this case from 15-145km/h to 15-160km/h, thanks to the forward sensing camera, which supplements the existing 77GHz microwave radar. SBS monitors preceding vehicles, first sounding an audible warning should it detect a hazardously closing gap and pre-filling the brakes, applying them should the driver fail to respond. Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) also utilises the new camera to identify speed limit and "no entry" signs, immediately notifying the driver via the Active Driving Display. It warns drivers with visual and audible alerts should they exceed the limit.
For occupants well-being, the interior packages offer a level of sophistication, quality and comfort is indeed fitting for an upmarket flagship, and every bit up to the award-winning looks. The carmaker has clearly achieved what it was aiming for with the 2017 Mazda 6, namely a degree of attractiveness and a personality that outclasses its class with a human-oriented approach to premium that is uniquely Mazda.
