The restyling of the front and rear aprons places particular emphasis on the car‘s width, which has the effect of signalling just how sporty both models are to drive and how sure their handling is. A chrome-design trim strip running across the full width of the rear and the positioning of the model and eDrive badges on the outer edges of the boot lid serves to reinforce this impression. The new BMW i3 and new BMW i3s come equipped with all-LED headlights as standard, which employ LED bulb units for dipped beam and high beam as well as the daytime running lights. The new turn signal indicators also feature LED technology and are integrated into the front apron in the form of horizontal strips. This means that LEDs are now used for all lighting functions at the front of the vehicle too, as was already the case with the glass-covered rear light assemblies.

The technology uses a damper placed in the hollow part of each piston pin to stifle diesel knock in the 3.5kHz range. This is the engine noise most conspicuous in the cabin and typically experienced when starting from a standstill or accelerating gradually. Natural Sound Frequency Control, meanwhile, complements the Natural Sound Smoother by supressing the other three critical frequency bands (1.3kHz, 1.7kHz and 2.5kHz) where diesel powerplant components typically vibrate loudest. It does so by deviating the engine timing ever so slightly (in 100 microsecond units), thereby causing the pressure waves produced before, during and after combustion to cancel each other out. This reduces combustion-induced vibration and the resulting cabin resonance.
Libby Wade Mazda, 2017-10-28 10:10:00. 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.

Mazda Proactive Safety is a comprehensive approach to maximising the range of conditions in which the driver can operate the vehicle safely and with greater confidence while minimising the risks that could lead to an accident. It thus supports true driving pleasure. With new active safety features, Mazda i-ACTIVSENSE advanced safety technologies lend even greater assistance to the driver in identifying potential risks early on, further lowering the chances of damage or injury. Passive safety enhancements include improving the efficiency of the multi-load path structure on Mazda innovative SKYACTIV-Body and using more ultra-high strength steels. The carmaker is aiming for top ratings from traffic safety authorities around the world.
Eve Fitzgerald Mazda, 2017-10-29 09:42:53. Based on the premise that peace of mind is a central element of Jinba-Ittai driving, Mazda Proactive Safety encompasses a holistic approach to protecting those within and beyond the vehicle. The Mazda Proactive Safety concept starts with providing a wealth of support to the driver. The medium is i-ACTIVSENSE, which is Mazda radar and camera-based range of advanced active and pre-crash safety technology. The idea: Help drivers help themselves by recognising and informing the one behind the wheel of potential dan-ger, only intervening when an accident is unavoidable.
Mollie Slater Mazda, 2017-10-29 09:42:53. The all-new Mazda CX-5 is available with an enviable line-up of i-ACTIVSENSE systems including the latest edition of Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC), which can follow a preceding vehicle from a standing stop, and Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), which reads speed limit and other road signs, displaying the message on the Active Driving Display. Mazda is looking to do no less with the 2017 Mazda 6 than deliver a flagship offering a foundation for the perfect driver-car relationship.
Libby Wade Mazda, 2017-10-29 09:42:53. 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.

Smart Brake Support (SBS) also widens its speed range for automatic braking, in this case from 15-145km/h to 15-160km/h, thanks to the forward sensing camera, which supplements the existing 77GHz microwave radar. SBS monitors preceding vehicles, first sounding an audible warning should it detect a hazardously closing gap and pre-filling the brakes, applying them should the driver fail to respond. Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) also utilises the new camera to identify speed limit and "no entry" signs, immediately notifying the driver via the Active Driving Display. It warns drivers with visual and audible alerts should they exceed the limit.
