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.
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.
Both SKYACTIV-D 2.2 versions feature a sequential twin turbocharger, delivering outstanding toque without turbo lag, as well as the fuel-economy advantages of optimum combustion timing, specially shaped pistons, multi-hole piezo injectors and more. These unconventional diesels are now more responsive and quieter than ever, too, with three new systems for the SKYACTIV-D 2.2 making their debut on the 2017 Mazda 6. The first, High-Precision DE Boost Control, enhances boost pressure control and enables finer fuel injection adjustments to sharpen the response to the accelerator, particularly under light load urban conditions or when merging onto a busy motorway. It thus achieves accurate and swift torque generation at the slightest touch of the accelerator pedal for smooth, linear acceleration with minimal shock and vibration - more like a naturally aspirated petrol engine. The car accelerates as intended, refining the Jinba-Ittai communication and feedback between the driver and car. It a well-oiled relationship.
