Niamh Hart. Mazda. October 31st , 2017.
The all-new Mazda CX-5 is available with an enviable line-up of i-ACTIVSENSE systems including the latest edition of Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC), which can follow a preceding vehicle from a standing stop, and Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), which reads speed limit and other road signs, displaying the message on the Active Driving Display. Mazda is looking to do no less with the 2017 Mazda 6 than deliver a flagship offering a foundation for the perfect driver-car relationship.
The 2017 Mazda 6 is therefore the first model in Europe (along with the 2017 Mazda 3) to get the carmaker world-unique G-Vectoring Control, which regulates engine output to improve both responsiveness and stability, particularly in curves. It the first system in the brand-new SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS line-up, a product of Mazda human-centric vehicle development approach that enables integrated Jinba Ittai-enhancing control over SKYACTIV engines, transmissions and platforms. Mazda newest flagship is also more refined than ever thanks among other things to innovations in diesel knock-suppression technology and turbocharger boost control now available for the Mazda 6 SKYACTIV-D 2.2. Safety, too, is being elevated with the addition of a new forward sensing camera. It expands the range and competence spectrum of several of the vehicle i-ACTIVSENSE active safety systems, such as automatic braking, also adding pedestrian and traffic sign recognition functionality.
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.
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.
