TRANSMISSION

Westowne Mazda Technology, Precise responsiveness
Precise responsiveness
To build the SKYACTIV-Drive transmission, we combined all the best features of modern transmissions to get smooth shifting, steady acceleration, and the precise responsiveness of a manual.

Westowne Mazda Technology, Precise responsiveness
More torque quickly
The SKYACTIV-Drive transmission takes the speed of the driver's pedal inputs into account. When the pedal is pressed slowly, the transmission does not shift until the driver has used all available torque. When the pedal is pressed quickly, the transmission shifts down sooner to give the driver more torque more quickly.

Westowne Mazda Technology, 6-speed skyactiv-MT

BODY AND CHASSIS

Westowne Mazda Technology, Improved body rigidity
Improved body rigidity
Through smarter engineering and materials, we were able to improve body rigidity (for better handling) and shed weight, all while improving crash safety performance and fuel economy.

Westowne Mazda Technology, Ultra-high-tensile steel
Ultra-high-tensile steel
We are constantly searching for new ways to make you safer behind the wheel. That's why Mazda is the first auto manufacturer to use ultra-hightensile steel in body construction.

Westowne Mazda Technology, Steel & aluminum
Steel & aluminum
Until now welding two different metals such as steel and aluminum has been a difficult task. However, by optimizing the rotating tool shape and joining characteristics, and by using galvanized steel on one side, joining steel and aluminum has been made possible.

Westowne Mazda Technology, Steel & aluminum
Nimble at low speed, stable at high speed
The SKYACTIV-Chassis steering and suspension systems achieve two seemingly contradictory goals - nimble at low speeds, yet stable at high speeds. And stability and responsiveness are both key components of how a vehicle performs when safety matters.

I-ACTIV AWD

CONFIDENCE IGNITED BY INTUITION

Westowne Mazda Technology, Confidence Ignited by Intuition
Mazda's predictive i-ACTIV AWD is an on-demand system featuring sensors that check road conditions 200 times every second. Built to sense, and respond to these conditions, i-ACTIV AWD helps to ensure a more confident drive.

Westowne Mazda Technology, Driver intent
Driver intent
The i-ACTIV AWD system uses numerous sensors to determine the driver's intentions. Is the driver intending to accelerate? How sharply is the steering wheel turned? How much pressure is on the brakes? These and other considerations are taken into account, and determine how the system reacts in order to achieve optimum control.

Westowne Mazda Technology, Road conditions
Road conditions
i-ACTIV AWD constantly monitors exterior temperature, wiper operation, the amount of torque required to turn the front wheels and the load on the engine. As a result, the system knows if it's snowing or raining, if the road is slippery, if the driver is on a hill or attempting to turn. This enables the i-ACTIV AWD system to accurately predict when slippage will occur.

Westowne Mazda Technology, Slip protection
Slip protection
i-ACTIV AWD is designed to send just enough torque to the rear wheels to prevent slippage from occurring. By doing this, it provides the traction associated with all-wheel drive, while minimizing the impact on fuel consumption.

Westowne Mazda Technology, Calculation
Calculation
An ideal split of torque between the front and rear wheels is achieved through the i-ACTIV AWD command module's innovative 200-times-per-second calculations, allowing for quick and responsive reactions that ensure a better, controlled drive.

Westowne Mazda Technology, Response
Response
Direction from the command module lets the i-ACTIV AWD system apply the required torque to the wheels to deliver an exceptionally stable driving experience with better control over acceleration, turns, breaking and slippage.

UNCOMPROMISED FUEL EFFICIENCY

Westowne Mazda Technology, UNCOMPROMISED FUEL EFFICIENCY
i-ACTIV AWD was designed to deliver exceptional responsiveness and to challenge the convention that an AWD vehicle must be inefficient. In order to deliver the benefits of AWD and excellent fuel efficiency they set out to reduce the weight of the AWD components and to minimize frictional losses.

Westowne Mazda Technology, Reducing frictional losses
Reducing frictional losses
Engineers even studied the way the oil moves through the gears in order to enhance the efficiency of the system.

Westowne Mazda Technology, Weight reduction
Weight reduction
In creating i-ACTIV AWD, engineers carefully scrutinized the design and materials used for every component. The result of these efforts is a 43% weight reduction compared to the previous generation system.

KODO DESIGN

DESIGNED TO TURN HEADS

Westowne Mazda Technology, DESIGNED TO TURN HEADS
Our new KODO "Soul of Motion" design language abounds with graceful, yet energetic, lines. Like the effects of wind or the flow or water, KODO is a unique expression of power and beauty seen in instantaneous motion at the very moment motion begins. It's a cheetah pouncing on its prey. It's the moment a sword strikes in the ancient Japanese art of kendo. It's instantaneous power, speed, ignified tension and sophisticated beauty. And it's highly seductive.
