Shannon Griffin Ford Fiesta, 2017-09-08 16:58:32. The next generation Ford Fiesta features a class-leading range of technologies to enhance comfort, convenience and safety. Advanced driver assistance technologies are supported by two cameras, three radars and 12 ultrasonic sensors, which in combination are able to monitor 360 degrees around the vehicle, and scan the road ahead up to a distance of 130 metres - more than the length of a football pitch. Fiesta is the first Ford to deliver an enhanced version of Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection that can detect people who are in or near the road ahead, or who may cross the vehicle‘s path, using light from the Fiesta‘s headlights at night. The system is designed to reduce the severity of some frontal collisions involving vehicles and pedestrians, or help drivers avoid some impacts altogether. A wider camera angle helps to better track pedestrian movements.

Ford’s new cylinder deactivation technology - first announced for the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine and a world first for a three-cylinder engine - will further improve fuel efficiency for Ford Fiesta ST customers without affecting performance by automatically stopping fuel delivery and valve operation for one of the engine’s cylinders in conditions where full capacity is not needed, such as when coasting or cruising with light demand on the engine. The technology can disengage or re-engage one cylinder in 14 milliseconds - 20 times faster than the blink of an eye - to seamlessly deliver full performance on demand. The all-aluminium engine also features an integrated exhaust manifold that improves efficiency by helping the engine reach optimal temperatures faster, and delivers torque more rapidly by minimising the distance exhaust gasses travel between cylinders and turbocharger. Gas particulate filter technology that reduces soot emissions will also feature.

Underlying the four Fiesta variants unveiled in Cologne is an exterior that builds on the bold styling of the outgoing Fiesta, with a more elegant design, and a more fluid and transitional appearance. Simplified, straighter lines and de-cluttered surfaces deliver more visual strength. The bonnet offers a calmer design with no centre bulge, which allows the new, wider grille to dominate. Sleek headlamps offer a new wrap-around effect that is immediately recognisable day or night.

The front MacPherson strut and rear multi-link suspension system features larger diameter front damper pistons and liquid-filled bushings for the front suspension. They suppress the floating sensation experienced by the driver as well as unpleasant vibrations in the cabin when the vehicle is subjected to roll. The braking system with front ventilated and rear solid discs now gets Mazda auto-hold function, which keeps the car stopped even after the driver lifts his or her foot off the brake pedal.

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.

The 2017 Mazda 6 is therefore the first model in Europe (along with the 2017 Mazda 3) to get the carmaker world-unique G-Vectoring Control, which regulates engine output to improve both responsiveness and stability, particularly in curves. It the first system in the brand-new SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS line-up, a product of Mazda human-centric vehicle development approach that enables integrated Jinba Ittai-enhancing control over SKYACTIV engines, transmissions and platforms. Mazda newest flagship is also more refined than ever thanks among other things to innovations in diesel knock-suppression technology and turbocharger boost control now available for the Mazda 6 SKYACTIV-D 2.2. Safety, too, is being elevated with the addition of a new forward sensing camera. It expands the range and competence spectrum of several of the vehicle i-ACTIVSENSE active safety systems, such as automatic braking, also adding pedestrian and traffic sign recognition functionality.

Strengthening the expression of the evolved Mazda family face are thinner headlamps positioned lower and a signature wing that extends the entire breadth of the front end to their apexes below each headlamp, emphasising the vehicle width. The detailed three-dimensional pattern of the grille mesh section combines with the sculpted signature wing to give the all-new CX-5 face a bolder, deeper and sportier expression. Beautiful reflections appear where the body surface changes shape as it sweeps from the front to the rear. The designers tirelessly adjusted the positioning and characteristics of the peaks and other details to create an elegant expression of transitioning light.
Caitlin Duncan Mazda, 2017-10-29 09:42:55. At Mazda, we feel that car and driver should have a bond like that seen between a horse and its rider. This is the Jinba-ittai concept, an idea that lies at the heart of Mazda vehicle design. Based on this vision, we have been investigating new operational methods that minimize the gap between the driver and the vehicle space-allowing the driver to operate the car intuitively, as though it were an extension of his or her own body. In the Mazda Vision Coupe, the cockpit layout is symmetrical, with the steering center in the middle and everything else to the left and right, meaning that the driver can sense the central axis of the car at all times. The Jinba-ittai ideal of intuitive operation has also been brought into the controls. Drivers can bring up information with a quick touch of the center console, like a jockey stroking the neck of his or her horse. This and other controls seek to create a unique human-machine interface that intuitively connects car and driver.
Kiera Shaw Mazda, 2017-10-29 09:42:55. Based on the human-centred philosophy, which aims to vitalise and stimulate the body and soul with a driving experience matched to human sensibilities, Mazda strives to build vehicles that heighten the sense of unity between the driver and car. The carmaker refined every aspect of the all-new CX-5 to provide a truly pleasing experience for the driver as well as everyone else in the vehicle. These efforts, which include enhanced powertrains, handling and ride comfort, heighten performance while also delivering a more tranquil cabin. The engine line-up includes Mazda SKYACTIV-D 2.2 clean diesel as well as the SKYACTIV-G 2.0 and SKYACTIV-G 2.5 direct-injection petrol engines. They are paired to six-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatic or SKYACTIV-MT manual transmissions. All these powertrains deliver powerful linear acceleration along with excellent fuel economy and correspondingly low emissions.
