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.
Buckets of adoration and positive reviews attest to what Mazda has achieved with its flagship, which is in no small part praise for its SKYACTIV powertrains. Now the 2017 Mazda 6 gets some brand new technology for a more cultivated experience to go with what is already a pleasure behind the wheel. The Mazda 6 comes with a choice of two SKYACTIV-D 2.2-litre diesels (150PS & 175PS) and three petrol engines: the SKYACTIV-G 2.0 with 145PS or 165PS, and the 192PS SKYACTIV-G 2.5. Featuring extreme compression ratios of 14:1 for all but one - much lower than the competition diesels and exceptionally high for petrol engines - they not only get the job done and do it efficiently, but they also engage the driver while theyre at it thanks to lightweight innovation and efficient packaging.
The all-new Mazda CX-5 comes with rigid steering mounts that heighten the linearity and steering stiffness of its column type electric power steering system. The front MacPherson strut and rear multi-link suspension system features larger diameter front damper pistons and liquid-filled bushings for the front suspension. They suppress the floating sensation experienced by the driver as well as unpleasant vibrations in the cabin when the vehicle is subjected to roll. The braking system with front ventilated and rear solid discs now gets Mazda auto-hold function, which keeps the car stopped even after the driver lifts his or her foot off the brake pedal.
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.
