2019 Mazda CX-3 passive safety features and technologies
The word passive may make it sound like these safety features are not actively keeping you safer. In fact, passive safety features are those that prevent injuries during a car accident. Obviously, we never plan to have car accidents, but they are more common that we would like, and they often occur due to human error that is out of our control. Thus, passive safety features hold a lot of importance. Keep reading below to learn more about the 2019 Mazda CX-3 passive safety features.
The 2019 Mazda3 made its global debut at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, followed by its regional debut in early 2019 at the Singapore Motorshow. The all new, fourth-generation vehicle features a revolutionary redesign, a larger infotainment screen, high-compression engine designed to save fuel, an available infrared driver-monitoring system, and the list goes on. If you weren’t interested before, then the new model is sure to catch your attention with the technology and the amount of features that it ushers in.
The new Mazda will introduce the first ever spark-control petrol compression-ignition engine – the technology which Mazda labeled SKYACTIV-X. The technology is designed to provide the company with the means necessary to meet the global emission requirements which are ever increasing. The engine is designed to offer high levels of drivability and refinement coupled with diesel-style fuel consumption, which in turn helps reduces emissions. The vehicle will feature SKYACTIV-X coupled with a mild-hybrid system which features an integrated starter generator which is belt-driven, and a 24-volt lithium-ion battery pack. Additionally, there is the possibility that Mazda will combine the hybrid system with conventional diesel and petrol powertrains at some point in the future.
Size and Style
The new model also introduces Mazda’s second-generation SKYACTIV chassis concept and packed with it a 25mm stretch in the wheelbase, which is a slight increase in height and an increase in width. The additional 25mm sits between the rear axle line and the rear seat. The couple distance between the rear and front seats remain unchanged though, despite the extra wheelbase. The main factor that comes into play in the stretch is providing room to pack in a battery bank for the mid-hybrid model which will lead, in some markets, the 3 range. For the new sedan and hatch, the battery will be sandwiched in the floor.
When it comes to the difference in style between the sedan and the hatch, only the windscreen and the bonnet are shared. The sedan is longer than the 5-door by 80mm and it resembles in many aspects Mazda6. Mazda also promises that the 3 hatch will feature equal or superior luggage space compared to the existing model – which in turn means that the sedan’s trunk will be even larger.
One key aspect that the 2019 Mazda3 set out to improve is noise and refinement. One key part which comes into play as far as the solution for that is the new platform of the vehicle, but there have also been changes made to the rear suspension design. The versions of the vehicle which feature front-wheel drive will ditch the independent rear suspension, the simpler torsion beam design contributing significantly to the improved refinement.
The new Mazda also introduces new Skyactiv Vehicle Architecture, which is an umbrella term for a few structures, including the seats which maintain the natural curve of the spine, as well as a ring-structure bodyshell designed to reduce transmission lag, increase rigidity, and improve vibration, harshness levels and noise.
Performance and Fuel Economy
While Mazda has not yet released efficiency or power figures for the 2.0 liter SKYACTIV-X engine, the company noted that a 20% reduction in fuel consumption was possible in average real-world driving scenarios, and a 30% reduction during low-speed driving. The engine also promises powerful torque, superior initial response, free-revving performance, and faithful linear response.
The SPCCI engine is capable of producing 181bhp and 164 pound-feet of torque. It was also confirmed that the powertrain will be scalable for petrol engines with more or less displacement. Assisting the engine is the 24-volt mild-hybrid system, in which the engine is assisted by an electric motor. The same applies for 2 traditional SKYACTIV-G engines within the line-up, which are 2.0 liter and 1.5 liter petrol units.
For the first time, the new Mazda will be available with all-wheel drive, the latest version of i-Activ AWD system working with the car’s torque vectoring in order to control distribution between rear and front wheels. This is designed to make the car respond better to the driver, according to the company.
When it comes to safety, the vehicle’s infrared driver-attention monitoring systems works with its automatic emergency braking system in order to alert you in case of a dangerous situation. The company noted that automatic emergency braking will be a standard feature, and that Mazda3 will provide forward cross-traffic alerts in order to help out in intersections where there is low visibility. The airbag count goes up to 7, with the addition of knee airbag for the driver. The vehicle’s available adaptive cruise control system can automatically handle steering inputs in specific high-traffic situation.

Revealed at the Tokyo motor show back in 2015, a production version of the concept car, Mazda RX-Vision is still on the table, according to Mazda’s design boss, Ikuo Maeda. Back when it was revealed, it was considered to signify the brand’s intention to launch a new range-topping sports car which is powered by a rotary engine. Maeda noted that the RX-Vision coming to fruition is his dream, and noted that he has prepared a design for a sports care which he labeled as kind of a production car. The model teased in 2015 featured a stubby rear and short overhangs. When it comes to measures, the concept was
4 ft in length
3 ft in width
8 ft tall.
While the new RX-Vision didn’t make its debut yet, some of the car’s design features can be spotted on the new Mazda 3. Ikuo Maeda talked about the RX-Vision and stated that when the brand decides that it needs a sports car that’s when the car will be produced. He also noted that Mazda already has its MX-5, and once if it needs a more premium sports car then there will be a serious think about it. Ichiro Hirose, Mazda’s product planning boss threw his two cents in as well and stated that he believes as soon as the company’s profit situation gets better they will be able to proceed in the direction necessary to make it a product.
Besides being revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show (where it was voted the most beautiful concept car of the year in 2015), the vehicle made the rounds at a number of global events in 2015. Besides its stunning design that caught everyone’s attention, the concept’s other significant focus was its RX label, which was hinting at a rotary engine revival. The Japanese company ahs a long history when it comes to producing rotary-engined cars, but despite this fact Mazda has not had such a vehicle in its line-up since 2012, when the RX-8 went out of production.
However, the company has confirmed that in 2020 a rotary-engined hybrid range extender will see the light of day. Despite the fact that no announcement was made stating how big the rotary extender will be, except for the fact that it will be small, and developed to run on both LPG gas and liquid petroleum. Mazda expects that by 2030 internal combustion engines coupled with some form of electrification will represent 95% of the vehicles the company produces, while full-electric battery vehicles will represent 5%.
The CEO Chips In
While Mazda’s Chief Executive Officer Akira Marumoto noted that he wants his company to build a production version of the Mazda RX-Vision concept, he also warns that the vehicle remains a dream. Speaking at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, during an Australian media interview he pointed out that the RX-Vision is a vision model for design development, which means that the company did not assume mass production, but Marmumoto did state that he wants to have one. He explained that one day the company wants to build the car, however, if it will be built for the market it should be a brand icon.
While there were rumors that the model will be a new upmarket model or a template for the return of the rotary-engine as part of Mazda’s 2020 line-up (which will be Mazda’s centenary year), Marumoto confirmed in Los Angeles that no decision has been made in regards to the return of rotary power to its engine bays. One thing is for certain however, Akira Marumoto is adamant that any production version of the vehicle concept would not be electric. He mentioned that he prefers the smell of gasoline, especially since it would be a sports car – he pointed out that EV can be considered as a commuter, except not in this situation.
Some reports indicate that the RX-Vision’s engine could be a turbocharged 1.6 liter two-rotor unit, which would be dishing out approximately 400 hp. Other rumors have pointed out that its engine could be a hybrid rotary, with about 450 hp. It’s difficult to speculate how close is Mazda to unveiling a production version of the concept, however, in 2017 an RX-8 mule was spotted at the Nurburgring undergoing track tests.
A front-engine, RWD sports car, with a next-generation SKYACTIV-R rotary power unit, and Mazda’s KODO design characteristics is highly desirable. Add to that the sleek concept looks that the RX-Vision teased and you have a vehicle that any car enthusiast would be thrilled to see, and something that could go head to head with anything from Jaguar F-Type to Porsche Cayman. While many high officials within the company noted their desire to see the project come to fruition, at this moment there have been no official announcement made about the possibility of the RX-Vision being put on the market.
