Mazda design pursues forms that embody life in all its dynamism and beauty. Our overriding belief is that such forms come only from the
human hand, and our skills and passion are directed at imbuing them with soul. The results speak straight to the heart from just a single
glance, making our cars much-loved, lifelong partners of their owners. This is the core aim of Mazda’s Kodo design philosophy.
In designing Mazda, we leveraged all our abilities to achieve elegance that satisfies mature sensibilities along with further refined
dynamism. Now Mazda displays its flagship dignity with greater beauty, higher quality and a more mature atmosphere both inside and out.
HUMAN-CENTRIC ENGINEERING: THE KEY TO SATISFACTION
At Mazda, driver satisfaction is always the driving force. So all our research and development is centred on you, the driver, to give you the confidence and peace of mind that comes with Mazda’s trademark Jinba-ittai feeling of unity with the car. And to deliver soul-stirring driving along with superior safety and environmental performance, Mazda developed the innovative Skyactiv Technology suite of technological breakthroughs by re-evaluating and revising every aspect of automotive engineering from the ground up. The latest step in the evolution of Skyactiv Technology is Skyactiv-Vehicle Dynamics and G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus). Based on how you and your passengers physically experience Mazda’s dynamic performance, the human-centred innovations in GVC Plus raise the bar in enjoyment of the road.
360° View Monitor
Four cameras on the front, sides and rear of the vehicle show the area around the car on a central display. Combined with alarm sounds triggered by eight parking sensors at the front and rear, the system helps you to avoid danger when pulling into or out of a garage, approaching T-shaped intersections or passing an oncoming car on a narrow road.
Lane-keep Assist System (LAS)
A forward sensing camera detects lane markings and assists the steering to keep you in lane. The system also alerts you when it judges an unintended lane departure is imminent by vibrating the steering wheel or with an audible alarm. When the system determines lane departure is intentional (use of turn signals etc.) no warning are given. The system operates at speeds above approximately 60km/h.
With the high-performance forward sensing camera, Advanced SCBS detects vehicles and pedestrians in front of the vehicle and automatically applies the brakes to help avoid collisions and mitigate collision damage while driving between approximately 4 and 80km/h (sensing a vehicle ahead) or between approximately 10 and 80km/h (sensing a pedestrian).
It uses milliwave radar to detect and measure the distance to a preceding vehicle. When the system judges vehicle is closing too fast it first warns of danger, and if no action is taken, it then begins to apply the brakes. Works at speed between 15 and 145km/h.
LDWS senses lane marking on the road surface. When the system predicts departure from the lane it issues an audible warning similar to the noise a car makes when it runs onto a rumble strip to prompt timely steering corrections. The system assesses driver inputs such as use of the turm signals to weed out false alarms.
These systems use milliwave radar to detect and measure the speed and distance of the vehicle ahead as well as detect any obstacles in front. MRCC automatically controls the engine and brakes to maintain a safe following distance and operates at any speed from 0km/h to 145km/h, enabling the driver to follow the preceding vehicle from a standing start and back to a complete stop.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)
RCTA uses the same sensors like BSM to alert the driver when it detects vehicles approaching from either side during reversing operations.
ALH offers the driver greater support for recognizing potential hazards when driving at night. The system improves night visibility and helps the driver avoid hazardous situations by combining the use of Glare-free High Beam (featuring an adjustable illumination range) and Wide-range Low Beam.
