Paige Dodd Mazda, October 31st , 2017. Repositioning the A-pillars rearwards expands the driver horizontal field of view, while smaller door mirrors enhance diagonal forward visibility. Rear visibility has been improved with a slightly lower beltline than the current model and the adoption of a single pane of glass for the rear window. The front seat seatbacks incorporate suspension mats, with the stiffness of each part optimised to firmly support the waist and minimise lateral upper body sway and head motion. Vibration-damping urethane foam on the seat cushions, meanwhile, provides greater comfort. The all-new Mazda CX-5 is the first Mazda to adopt a two-step reclining mechanism on the rear seats. Comfort improvements in the back also include a lower hip point, seat cushions with a three-dimensional shape that follows the occupant lower body form, and the availability of rear seat heaters and climate control vents on the back of the centre console.
Caitlin Duncan Ford Fiesta, November 04th , 2017. Ford revealed four distinctive production variants of the Fiesta, including the stylish Fiesta Titanium, the Ford Performance-inspired Fiesta ST-Line, the upscale Fiesta Vignale and the Fiesta Active crossover - the first in a new line-up of Active vehicles to be rolled out across the Ford range in years to come.
Eleanor Norton Audi, November 04th , 2017. With the newly developed 2.9 TFSI, Audi has drawn upon the legendary 2.7 liter V6 from the first RS4 Avant. Produced between 1999 and 2001, it delivered 280 kW (380 hp). Just like the 2.7 liter engine, the new high-performance V6 is also designed as a bi-turbo engine. In comparison with its direct predecessor, a freely-aspirated, high-revving V8 unit, its pulling power and efficiency attain a whole other dimension.
Niamh Hart Mazda, October 31st , 2017. 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.
Paige Dodd Mazda, October 31st , 2017. 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.
Mollie Slater Honda, November 04th , 2017. For the first time, the new 2018 Odyssey has 1500-megapascal (MPa) ultra-high-strength steel door reinforcement beams and ultra-high-strength front door outer stiffener rings made of 1500-MPa hot-stamped steel. Laser welded and significantly stronger than ordinary steel, the ultra-high-strength steel reinforcements are designed to help better protect occupants in a frontal or side impact. Their increased strength allows the components to be made lighter which also helps reduce overall vehicle weight for improved fuel efficiency.
Eleanor Norton Mazda, October 31st , 2017. All elements in front of the driver flow outward from the centre of the steering wheel, which has an invigorating effect while also creating in the cabin a roomy ambience and sense of width. The extraordinary depth of the seats together with the deeply chiselled climate control louvers express outstanding quality and durability. The decorative panel finishing blends the warmth of natural wood with the strength and resilience of metal. The three interior packages available feature pure white leather, black leather or black fabric. Different colours were used above and below the instrument panel to emphasise the sense of physical unity with the car and its interior roominess.
Millie Lowe Mazda, October 31st , 2017. 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.
Caitlin Duncan Mazda, October 31st , 2017. Now Mazda has gone a step further with its human-centered philosophy. To gain a systematic understanding of what exactly gives people a satisfying and exhilarating experience behind the wheel, the company began testing and assessing how they respond. It determined, for example, that a relaxed posture makes a person more responsive and less prone to fatigue. Debuting in Europe as standard equipment on the 2017 Mazda 6 and 2017 Mazda 3, the first system in the new SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS line-up is G-Vectoring Control (GVC). GVC is a product of Mazda pursuit of smooth transitions between the g-forces produced when accelerating, braking and turning. It the only system of its kind that adjusts engine torque in response to steering wheel action to achieve smoother and more efficient vehicle behaviour, providing unified control over lateral and longitudinal forces to optimise the load on each wheel.
Caitlin Duncan Mazda, October 31st , 2017. MZD Connect works in conjunction with smartphones and other mobile devices to simplify connecting to the internet, access social networking services and using other communications functions. Mazda advanced car connectivity system includes audio functions, hands-free phone operation, Aha™ by HARMAN for a wealth of cloud-based content, and a navigation system that uses data from SD cards. Tuned to match the characteristics of an SUV, the new audio system delivers clearer high-end sound along with a tighter bass. It also adds tweeters mounted in the A-pillars, achieving a clearer, more natural sound by positioning output closer to the ears of vehicle occupants. The all-new Mazda CX-5 features a 10-speaker BOSE® premium sound system co-developed with Mazda that includes Bose AudioPilot® 2 ambient noise compensation and Centerpoint® 2 surround sound technology.
