Millie Lowe Mazda, October 31st , 2017. Three i-ACTIVSENSE advancements debut on the 2017 Mazda 6, highlighted by a brand-new forward sensing camera extending the functionality of various systems. The first is Advanced Smart City Brake Support (Advanced SCBS). Replacing the system near-infrared laser, the forward sensing not only widens the forward detection speed range from 4-30km/h to 4-80km/h, but can also identify pedestrians. Advanced SBCS automatically applies brakes should it spot an obstacle or person in front of the car. It also works in reverse using ultrasonic sensors at speeds of 2-8km/h.
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.
Paige Dodd Mazda, October 31st , 2017. Strengthening the expression of the evolved Mazda family face are thinner headlamps positioned lower and a signature wing that extends the entire breadth of the front end to their apexes below each headlamp, emphasising the vehicle width. The detailed three-dimensional pattern of the grille mesh section combines with the sculpted signature wing to give the all-new CX-5 face a bolder, deeper and sportier expression. Beautiful reflections appear where the body surface changes shape as it sweeps from the front to the rear. The designers tirelessly adjusted the positioning and characteristics of the peaks and other details to create an elegant expression of transitioning light.
Niamh Hart 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.
Caitlin Duncan Ford Fiesta, November 04th , 2017. Ford‘s SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system will enable Ford Fiesta ST drivers to control audio, navigation and connected smartphones using simple, conversational voice commands. Compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SYNC 3 is supported by floating, tablet-inspired touchscreens up to 8-inches that can be operated using pinch and swipe gestures. The next generation Ford Fiesta ST also will be offered with a high quality B&O PLAY Sound System for a high-end audio experience - among features Ford first announced last year for the next generation Fiesta. For 2018, Ford Explorer has been further upgraded, providing customers freshened front and rear styling details, even better technology and more choice. Explorer offers an available 4G embedded modem that includes a Wi-Fi hotspot and supports as many as 10 devices at once - up to 50 feet away from the vehicle.
Eleanor Norton 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.
Mollie Slater Honda, November 04th , 2017. The Honda Odyssey new direct-injection system enables increased torque across the engine full operating range along with higher fuel efficiency. The system features a compact, high-pressure, direct-injection pump that allows both high fuel flow and pulsation suppression, while variable pressure control optimizes injector operation. A multi-hole injector delivers fuel directly into each cylinder (not to the intake port, as in the previous generation Odyssey), allowing for more efficient combustion. The multi-hole injectors can create the ideal stoichiometric fuel/air mixture in the cylinders for good emissions control. Theoretically, a stoichiometric mixture has just enough air to completely burn the available fuel. Based on the operating conditions, the direct-injection system alters its function for best performance. Upon cold engine startup, fuel is injected into the cylinders on the compression stroke. This creates a weak stratified charge effect that improves engine start-up and reduces exhaust emissions before a normal operating temperature is reached.
Caitlin Duncan Mazda, October 31st , 2017. The all-new Mazda CX-5 comes with rigid steering mounts that heighten the linearity and steering stiffness of its column type electric power steering system. The front MacPherson strut and rear multi-link suspension system features larger diameter front damper pistons and liquid-filled bushings for the front suspension. They suppress the floating sensation experienced by the driver as well as unpleasant vibrations in the cabin when the vehicle is subjected to roll. The braking system with front ventilated and rear solid discs now gets Mazda auto-hold function, which keeps the car stopped even after the driver lifts his or her foot off the brake pedal.
Paige Dodd Mazda, October 31st , 2017. i-stop is Mazda innovative, intelligent idle-stop system. Standard equipment on the all new Mazdas including the 2017 Mazda 6, it uses combustion energy for the restart. In addition to saving fuel, this enables some of the fastest restarts in the industry: 0.35 seconds for SKYACTIV-G petrol engines and only 0.40 seconds on SKYACTIV-D diesels. i-stop uses a refined control module to switch off the engine in the ignition/expansion stroke (petrol) or compression stroke (diesel), the optimum cycles for restarting. In fact, i-stop actually waits for the moment the cylinders are in the ideal restart position. And it only takes a spilt second.
Caitlin Duncan Mazda, October 31st , 2017. The 2017 Mazda 6 SKYACTIV-Chassis plays an elemental role here. It features a front MacPherson strut and rear multi-link suspension whose shock absorber structure and optimised bushing shapes to deliver a flatter, smoother ride, balancing steering comfort and fun responsiveness as well as braking agility and stability. Lightweight yet exceptionally stiff, the SKYACTIV-Body, meanwhile, supports the reconciliation of these contradictory factors. Despite having one of the lowest kerb weight in its class (starting at 1,300kg), the Mazda 6 also delivers top-class passive safety protection that helped it earn five stars from Euro NCAP and other traffic safety authorities around the world. Aerodynamics are outstanding too, with cd values of 0.26 for the sedan and 0.28 for the wagon.
