Eleanor Norton BMW, 2017-11-04 19:54:30. The all-new BMW X3 line-up from launch consists of BMW TwinPower Turbo technology 2.0-liter 4-cylinder inline gasoline engine with Double-VANOS variable camshaft timing and Valvetronic fully variable intake lift, a map-controlled oil pump, electric arc wire-sprayed cylinder barrels, Twin-scroll exhaust turbocharger and electrically adjustable waste gate valve. The latest M Performance model, the BMW X3 M40i comes with a 3.0-liter M Performance TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder inline gasoline engine. The intake manifold integrated indirect charge air intercooler allows for a lower charge air volume between the compressor and intake valves, noticeably improving engine response. This translates to shorter air routing, faster boost pressure build-up, and throttle response. Both engines come from the latest generation of BMW engines. Improvements have also been made to both the 8-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission with shift paddles and the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system to increase efficiency.

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.

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.
Libby Wade Mazda, 2017-10-28 10:10:00. 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.

Short for "Intelligent Energy Loop", Mazda fuel-saving i-ELOOP brake energy regeneration system was the world first such passenger car technology to utilise a capacitor to store electricity recovered during braking. Mazda focused on the recurring deceleration and acceleration cycle of everyday driving conditions. Determining that a typical deceleration phase lasts only about 10 seconds, the company adopted an electric double-layer capacitor (EDLC) to quickly capture and temporarily store the recovered electricity rather than a dedicated lead-acid starter battery or lithium-ion unit.

In this model, we have sought to create a beauty that special to cars-with a cabin further to the back and forming a single smooth line, based on the "golden ratio" of classic coupe proportions. The silhouette creates the feel of a high-performance machine, with a hint of powerful forward momentum. In creating the form of the body, the focus has been on stripping away everything that is unnecessary. The sense of rhythm and movement displayed by Mazda cars in recent years has been transformed into a simple three-dimensional shape that aims to embody a "less is more" aesthetic. From the Mazda badge on the front to the badge on the back, a single powerful axis runs right through the car, evoking the look and feel of supple steel, with all the car movements centering on this central vector. The result is a form that is extraordinarily simple yet full of a sense of latent speed: the "one motion form" that is the outstanding feature of this model. Having created a four-door coupe as our basic framework, we have invested tremendous time and care on the bodywork, especially the play of light across its surface.

The system features synthetic oil that maintains its low viscosity even in extremely cold conditions, thus reducing energy losses throughout its operating temperature range. Utilising newly developed ball bearings for all its power take-off and rear differential unit bearings, it also reduces resistance. The all-new Mazda CX-5 features G-Vectoring Control (GVC), the first technology in Mazda new SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS range. By adjusting engine torque in response to steering wheel action, GVC delivers unified control over lateral and longitudinal acceleration g-forces, optimising the vertical load on each wheel. The system is particularly beneficial in SUVs, whose relatively high centre of gravity makes them prone to lateral forces. GVC thus enhances both vehicle responsiveness and stability, helping prevent occupants from sliding sideways and delivering a more comfortable, relaxing ride.

Further evolving the personality of Soul Red, a vivid body colour combining bright highlights and pure depth to instil an emotionally charged energy, Soul Red Crystal attains a fresher, even more stunning level of transparency. Designers of the all-new Mazda CX-5 interior focused their efforts on ambience, form, and texture in keeping with the "refined toughness" theme. Aiming for a human-centred ambience, Mazda carefully considered the form of every component to come up with a basic layout providing a pleasing sense of exhilaration and reassuring comfort for all occupants. Then the design team worked to perfect the interior with forms demonstrating both SUV toughness and quality, paying careful attention to the fit and finish of every detail.
