The so-called "deep-skirt" design extends the walls of the crankcase far downwards, which also saves weight. The entire engine weighs just 182 kilograms (401.2 lb) which makes it 31 kilograms (68.3 lb) lighter than its V8 predecessor. Gross weight and axle load distribution are the predominant beneficiaries of this in the new RS5 Coupe. The flat-bottomed 3-spoke RS multifunction sport leather steering wheel features multifunction buttons for convenient operation of the infotainment system. Equally integrated are high-gloss black shift paddles with aluminum elements. The steering wheel rim bears the RS badge, as does the RS-specific shift gate. An additional optical highlight is the optional RS design package. It brings the sporty contrast color red into play on the center console as well as on the armrests, the seat belts and the floor mats with RS logo. The steering wheel, selector lever and knee pads are all covered with Alcantara. The Sonoma green design package from Audi exclusive enriches the interior with appropriately colored contrasting stitching - perfect for the new, exclusive exterior color.
Caitlin Duncan Ford Fiesta, 2017-11-04 19:53:48. Also offered for the first time on Fiesta is Ford‘s Active Park Assist with Perpendicular Parking, which helps drivers find suitable spaces and park hands free nose-to-tail and side-by-side with other cars. Further enhanced for Fiesta, the technology for the first time can now apply the brakes if drivers do not respond to system guidance and proximity warnings while performing forward and reverse manoeuvres, and a collision with a parked car or obstacle to the front or rear is imminent. "For some drivers our automated parking technologies deliver a ’future shock’: they remain so advanced that customers using them for the very first time can be a little awe-struck," said Darren Palmer, small car vehicle line director, Ford of Europe.
Mollie Slater Honda, 2017-11-04 19:53:48. In a first for Odyssey, Honda Active Shutter Grille system located below the front bumper reduces aerodynamic drag especially at cruising speeds, directly helping to improve fuel efficiency. Included on all 2018 Odyssey trims, the system uses an electric actuator controlled by a processor that tracks major temperature parameters, including engine coolant and radiator temperatures, intake air temperature, transmission oil temperature and air-conditioning requirements, all of which can vary due to weather, road conditions, vehicle speed, throttle and gear positions, and towing activity. The system either opens or closes the four shutters simultaneously to control the amount of air flowing through the engine radiator and the air conditioner condenser. The system is designed to keep the shutters closed as much as possible - even in city driving.

For one, by the fact that SKYACTIV engines allow such precise torque control and the SKYACTIV-Chassis and SKYACTIV-Body such ideal vehicle be-haviour. This also means GVC is compatible with any SKYACTIV model. And because it a software control system with no additional hardware, it doesnt add any weight to speak of, which is a good match for the Mazda obsession with cutting every possible gram. GVC thus goes hand in hand with the Mazda 6 philosophy as well as existing technology like i-ACTIV AWD, the carmaker intelligent all-wheel drive system offered for diesel-powered Mazda 6 wagons. Predictive rather than reactive, it smoothly sends power to the wheels that need it when they need it. i-ACTIV AWD actually foresees road conditions based on more than 200 readings per seconds from 27 signals covering various factors such as engine, transmission and windshield wiper behaviour as well as steering, yaw and temperature. Like GVC, it works under any road conditions, even if theyre changing rapidly, while reducing energy loss and fuel wastage from wheel spinning or too much rear-drive operation. So it not only makes driving safer, but also more efficient and, of course, more fun.
Caitlin Duncan Mazda, 2017-10-31 21:30:08. 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.
Paige Dodd Mazda, 2017-10-31 21:30:07. Looking back through our design history, the starting point for "Mazda elegance" is perhaps represented by the 1960 Mazda R360 and the 1969 Mazda Luce rotary coupe. In an age preoccupied with the notion of efficiency, the focus of these models was on creating beautiful proportions. Though the playful allure of these cars ran counter to the general trends of this period, this style was ultimately to become the origins of the "Mazda elegance" of today. The Mazda Vision Coupe is a next-generation design vision model which showcases the "new elegance" that we have developed, drawing upon Mazda long history of design. The name of the car-"COUPE"-gives a hint of where this special "Mazda elegance" originally came from.
Caitlin Duncan Mazda, 2017-10-31 21:30:06. 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.
Paige Dodd Mazda, 2017-10-31 21:30:06. 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.
