Caitlin Duncan BMW, 2017-11-04 19:54:37. The new BMW i3s comes equipped as standard with sports suspension that includes a 10-millimetre drop in ride height. The additional 40 millimetres of track width compared to the BMW i3 is given added impact by the black wheel arch borders. The new BMW i3s is available with exclusive 20-inch light-alloy wheels in double-spoke design that are 20 millimetres wider than the previously available versions. They can be ordered in the Bicolour and Jet Black colour variants. Like the exterior design, the interior styling of the new BMW i3 and new BMW i3s is rooted in the novel LifeDrive vehicle architecture. The carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) passenger cell has a wonderfully spacious feel about it and is dominated by a sense of lightness. The design principle of the two four-seater models means there is no need for either fixed B-pillars or a transmission tunnel. Doors that open in opposite directions allow the occupants to get in and out with the greatest of ease.
Paige Dodd Mazda, 2017-10-31 21:30:07. It works like this: As soon as the driver turns when, say, entering a curve, GVC uses engine torque to generate deceleration g-force. This shifts the load to the front wheels, increasing front tire grip to boost responsiveness. When the driver subsequently maintains a constant steering angle through the curve, GVC restores acceleration engine torque, which transfers the load back to the rear wheels. This supports vehicle stability. Because the load transferring draws out added grip from the respective wheels, it furnishes a dynamic balance of stability and responsiveness, which in turn makes the 2017 Mazda 6 behaviour correspond more precisely to the driver intentions. And GVC does its job regardless of the driver skill level in a range of driving situations: At low or high speeds, on straightaways or winding roads, on rain, snow or ice, and even during emergency manoeuvres.

Increased use of ultra-high strength materials including 1,180MPa steel on the A-pillars and 980MPa steel on the side sills and B-pillars. To enable stress-free conversation in the cabin, great effort was devoted to reducing the low-frequency road noise heard when driving on coarse surfaces as well as high-frequency wind and tire noise when travelling at higher speeds. Compared to the outgoing model, the all-new Mazda CX-5 achieves around 10% clearer conversation levels in the cabin at a cruising speed of 100km/h and reduces noise by some 1.3dB when traveling on rough roads.
Caitlin Duncan 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.

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.
Caitlin Duncan Mazda, 2017-10-29 09:42:55. 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.
Eleanor Norton Mazda, 2017-10-31 21:30:05. 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.
