From 1,900 to 5,000 rpm, the 2.9 TFSI supplies the crankshaft with an impressive 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) of torque, which is 170 Nm (125.4 lb-ft) more than on the previous model. With its 331 kW (450 hp) - which equates to a power ratio of 155.5 hp per liter displacement - the unit accelerates the new RS5 Coupe from zero to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 3.9 seconds and thus six tenths of a second faster than before. If the customer orders the RS dynamic package, Audi increases the electronically restricted top speed from 250 km/h (155.3 mph) to 280 km/h (174.0 mph).

For occupants well-being, the interior packages offer a level of sophistication, quality and comfort is indeed fitting for an upmarket flagship, and every bit up to the award-winning looks. The carmaker has clearly achieved what it was aiming for with the 2017 Mazda 6, namely a degree of attractiveness and a personality that outclasses its class with a human-oriented approach to premium that is uniquely Mazda.
Kiera Shaw 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.

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.

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.

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.
Eleanor Norton Mazda, 2017-10-29 09:42:55. How is this possible? 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.

An expression of pure motion running from the front to the rear of the body conveys agile acceleration and speed. The all-new CX-5 exudes a boldly seductive charm. Its physique emphasises the solid stance and forward momentum with a simple form that beautifully reflects shadows and highlights. A lower centre of gravity and 10mm wider front and rear tread give the all-new Mazda CX-5 a more powerful stance. Mazda repositioned the A-pillars some 35mm rearward compared to the current model, also optimising the relative positions of the front axle and A-pillars. The motion conveyed down the sides of the vehicle culminates at the rear with a trapezoidal shape that extends from the liftgate out toward each rear tire. The result is a powerful physique that appears firmly planted from any angle.
