The 2017 Mazda 6s comprehensive range of active and pre-crash safety systems includes Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM). Its 24GHz radar keeps track of vehicles approaching from behind (as close as 2m) and in adjacent lanes (up to 8m to the side and 50m behind) at 30km/h and up, visually and audibly altering drivers should they signal a lane change. BSM includes Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), which uses BSM sensors and signals when the car is reversing. Lane-keep Assist System (LAS) monitors the road markings via the forward sensing camera at 60km/h and up, warning the driver of unintentional lane changes (e.g. without using the turn signal) by vibrating the steering wheel. LAS even provides steering torque assistance to return the vehicle to the centre of its lane. Adaptive LED Headlights (ALH), which debuted on the 2015 Mazda 6, combines glare-free LED high beams and wide-range low beams with an auto-levelling function. Each headlamp has four LED blocks that can be shut off individually to avoid impairing other motorists vision. The low beams greatly broaden coverage and with it visibility at places like intersections.
The benefits are numerous. By optimising the vertical load on the tires to the given conditions, it keeps the vehicle on its intended path while significantly reducing the need for steering correction. The communication between driver and car is simply more efficient, which instils confidence and reduces driver fatigue. And safety, since a relaxed driver is also more alert. It also enhances comfort, since the smoother, "natural" transition of g-forces supresses occupants head and body movement. Developers looked closely at human perceptions to come up with a system that reacts so quickly as to be indiscernible. GVC therefore not only enables better control of the car than is possible for a person on their own, it also extremely subtle about it. The aforementioned deceleration force normally amounts to a g-force on the 2017 Mazda 6 that is scarcely distinguishable to occupants.
Efforts focused on creating a confident, resilient look that further enhances the distinct personality and dynamic flavour of the outgoing model. An expression of pure motion running from the front to the rear of the body conveys agile acceleration and speed. The all-new CX-5 exudes a boldly seductive charm. Its physique emphasises the solid stance and forward momentum with a simple form that beautifully reflects shadows and highlights. A lower centre of gravity and 10mm wider front and rear tread give the all-new Mazda CX-5 a more powerful stance. Mazda repositioned the A-pillars some 35mm rearward compared to the current model, also optimising the relative positions of the front axle and A-pillars. The motion conveyed down the sides of the vehicle culminates at the rear with a trapezoidal shape that extends from the liftgate out toward each rear tire. The result is a powerful physique that appears firmly planted from any angle.
Aerodynamic components such as the duct-shaped openings in the front grille were strategically positioned to provide the greatest benefit. Mazda Proactive Safety is a comprehensive approach to maximising the range of conditions in which the driver can operate the vehicle safely and with greater confidence while minimising the risks that could lead to an accident. It thus supports true driving pleasure. With new active safety features, Mazda i-ACTIVSENSE advanced safety technologies lend even greater assistance to the driver in identifying potential risks early on, further lowering the chances of damage or injury. Passive safety enhancements include improving the efficiency of the multi-load path structure on Mazda innovative SKYACTIV-Body and using more ultra-high strength steels. The carmaker is aiming for top ratings from traffic safety authorities around the world.
