What To Expect From The 2019 Mazda3

Tuesday, January 29th, 2019
Pair of 2019 Mazda3

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.

Introducing SKYACTIV-X

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.Mazda3 Skyactive-x

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.

Safety

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.

Conclusion

All-wheel drive
Debuting SKYACTIV-X
New Skyactiv Vehicle Architecture

Better fuel economy
Automatic Emergency Braking system for standard trims

What’s New for the 2019 Mazda CX-5?

Monday, January 28th, 2019

It proves the dynamism offered by compact SUVs as they are picking up the trend of family cars that are more marketable in this generation. The following are some of the character traits associated with the model range.

Price Range

Some of the added features include power operated lift gate and sunroof. Hence, any type of CX-5 offers you value for money.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

This is a bold move and if you want to own a car that has improved fuel conservancy features, this can be the right one for you. Even though it may not be quite as other turbo charge models in its class, it’s an efficient car that handles well around corners and performs exceptionally good off-road.

Interior

Each model has the option of a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The grand touring model has added memory settings for driver’s seat and six power adjustments for the passenger’s seat. Although, it’s tight for space, holding only nine carry on suitcases behind its rear seats when equipped with a flat load floor.

Driver Assistance

Blind spot monitors and rear cross traffic alerts have become standard. In addition, adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist have also been included. 2019 Mazda CX-5 is equipped with standard low speed automated emergency braking.

Thus, if you want a machine that you feel safe while driving with all the help you can get the Mazda CX-5 fits the bill. It is sure to perform even better with time.

Handling

The new model comes equipped with an all new g-vectoring control system. One notable thing about this system is that it automatically applies the brakes to the outside of the front wheels when the driver straightens the wheels. According to the company, this feature makes the vehicle more stable as you drive out of a corner.

Exterior Features

The touring model has been equipped with 19 inch wheels and the full suite of assists. Its compact body is available in different colors with black and blue being the most common with the customers. Its elucidated by a sleek finish from the manufacturers to blend right into your lifestyle.

Maintenance and Warranty

The car warranty covers 3 years which subsequently refers to an average of 36,000 miles. The powertrain warranty covers 5 years which also refers to about 60,000 miles. However, it does not offer complimentary maintenance.

Final Thoughts

The Mazda CX-5 is a competitive model as compared to other models in the industry and offers you value for your money. The great finishes not withstanding and great additional driver assistance features make the Model stand out as a top player in the compact SUV range.

The model is family friendly although it’s squeezed for space which means it might not come in handy for huge family vacation. Albeit the saying great things come in small packages, the exquisite interior more than compensates for the lack of space. The burgeoning SUV market requires the company to produce a masterpiece to become relevant in the market and they have done so with the CX-5.

The model comes with personalized features, such as infortainment and a Bose sound system. This shows how far the firm is willing to go to break the bounds of what was thought to be the adage structure of building SUVs.

Verdict

Owning the 2019 Mazda CX-5 could be quite a lovely experience considering the ratings posted by owners and consumers of the product.

Will We See a Mazda RX-Vision?

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019
Mazda-RX-Vision-live-shots

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.

Still Rumors

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.

Now is the Perfect Time to Buy a Mazda6

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

While the 2019 Mazda6 will be around at some point soon, the turn of the year is an ideal time to purchase an outgoing model if you are interested in buying off of the lot. Despite the fact that the model has 2018 in its name, the 2018 Mazda6 is nowhere near yesterday’s news. With a great design, turbo power to match, plenty of safety gear and features, the 2018 model is a viable option if you’re looking to get a Mazda 6 but you’re not sure yet what to do.

Performance – Smooth and Composed Ride

The mid-size sedan comes in Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trim levels – which means that there are plenty of options from which you can choose, especially once we get into the nitty gritty and see what each of them brings to the table . The turbo-4 option makes the vehicle stand out. The Touring and Sport trim levels come with a carryover 2.5 liter inline-4 which is rated at 187 hp, while the Signature, Grand Touring, and Grand Touring Reserve trim levels swap in a turbocharged engine which is rated at 227 horsepower with regular fuel and 250 horsepower on premium. The subtle tweaks made to the 2018 model resulted in a smooth and composed ride. The 6 boasts a balanced chassis, and the steering is firmer and also more communicative than what most mid-size sedans have to offer.

The vehicle provides an athletic and fluid driving experience which if backed by its power. A 6-speed automatic is standard on Touring and higher trims, and optional on the Sport trim – which features a 6-speed manual. The engine provides a strong performance, being able to build power quickly. Additionally, next to the gear lever there is a rocker switch which is able to switch the 6 into Sport drive mode, firming up the steering and steering the engine in its rev band. The 19 inch wheels on the Touring (and higher trim levels) offers a comfortable ride that does not crash over bigger bumps despite tits tiny sidewalls.

How much fuel?

The 2.5 liter inline-4 when paired with an automatic transmission rates at 26 mpg city, 35 mpg highway, and 29 mpg combined in the EPA test. Meanwhile, the manual transmission versions rate at 24 city, 35 highway, and 27 combined. On the other hand, the turbo-4 is at 23/31/26 mpg. While both engines can run on regular unleaded fuel, Mazda points out that in order to make the most of the turbo-4 then premium unleaded is the choice to go.

One of the safest sedans on the market

The narrow roof pillars provide good outward vision, and overall the crash-test results show that the Mazda 6 is one of the safest sedans out there. The vehicle earned great marks when it comes to testing, a 4-star rating in the government’s calculated rollover test, and a 5-star overall rating from the NHTSA. All trim levels (except for the base Mazda 6 Sport) feature full-speed automatic emergency braking, active lane control, and adaptive cruise.

Comfort and Style

Even on the base 6 Sport trim level, you will get a set of 17-inch alloy wheels as well as LED headlights. The interior manages to impress, with a low dash and controls mostly grouped below the vents designed for climate control. The dash features an 8.0 inch screen which is control by a few buttons and a knob mounted on the console. When we go to higher trim levels, the Grand Touring Reserve features a black headliner, nappa leather hides, and real wood trim.

When it comes to interior space, the Mazda has plenty of it due to the fact that the vehicle is more on the long side as far as mid-size sedans go – and it also has a classy interior feel, which gets bonus points. Speaking of space, the wide trunk opening shows 14.7 cubic feet of space, and the rear seats can fold in a 60/40 arrangement. The seats feature cloth in Sport trims, synthetic leather for the Touring and Grand Touring trims, leather in the Grand Touring Reserve trim, and finally softer leather for the Signature trim. Additionally, for Touring and higher trims, rear seat riders will be able to use the pair of USB ports which was added, hidden in the flop-drown armrest.

Touring and higher trims feature Android Auto and Apple CarPlay – features which were added late in the 2018 model year, but Mazda retrofitted the necessary hardware and software for free for customers that bought one before the feature was added. Also on the 6 Touring, the vehicle features a moonroof, rear-seat climate control vents, and heated seats up front. If you want to take things up a notch and go for the Grand Touring Reserve you will also get memory driver’s seat, heated steering wheel, and cooled front seats.

What to Expect From a Mazda6

Smooth ride
Good safety features
Running on both unleaded and premium
Stylish
Good upgrades for higher trim levels
Elegant interior
