Mazda applied every aspect of its human-centred philosophy to the all-new CX-5, enhancing the already acclaimed design of the current model. The result is cabin comfort that makes every trip a delight for all occupants. The cockpit zone is designed around the ideal driving position, with all controls and switches laid out where the driver can operate them with natural hand or foot movements. To improve usability, the floor console was raised and the shift knob positioned 60mm (automatic) or 40mm (manual) higher than on the current model.
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.
The SKYACTIV-G petrol engines are likewise a product of Mazda non-stop efforts to continue advancing the Jinba-Ittai driving sensation. Like the SKYACTIV-D, this means smoothly delivering the ideal linear response to driver input, behaving precisely as intended and providing the corresponding feedback. The engines are mated to six-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatics or SKYACTIV-MT manual transmissions. i-stop, idle stop system providing some of the fastest restarts around, is standard equipment, while i-ELOOP, Mazda unique brake energy regeneration system, is available for all powerplants except the 145PS versionof the SKYACTIV-G 2.0. Diesel-powered Mazda 6 wagons are also offered with Mazda intelligent i-ACTIV AWD system, which features a front-slip detection warning system.
It is a rather simple concept: The driverprovides input via controls like the steering wheel, pedals and gearshift. The vehicle, meanwhile, does what it told and supplies feedback. Mazda is continually striving to perfect the concept, because effective communication between man and machine not only makes driving safer, but also more satisfying, more rewarding and more fun. Mazda calls this relationship Jinba Ittai, and to continue enhancing the "oneness" of driving its flagship, the carmaker looked at things from the customer perspective.
