Mazda models are particularly known for the fun and sporty handling that their cars and SUVs offer. But you may not know about all of the science and research that goes on behind it. The Mazda brand achieves such feats with its engineered concepts under its umbrella term, SKYACTIV® Technology. This includes the SKYACTIV®-G 2.0L and 2.5L engines for greater fuel efficiency and SKYACTIV®-Drive 6-speed automatic and manual transmissions for excellent torque. Perhaps you have heard Hartford, CT drivers discussing SKYACTIV-Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control, found in cars like the Mazda3 and Mazda6. To create this effective system, the automaker studied human behaviors in efforts to find a way to take the fatigue out of driving. This feature autonomously calculates optimal torque to transfer weight properly around turns, to ultimately enhance stability and thus decrease driving fatigue that is experienced.

You may also remember we recently discussed the innovative paint technology that is currently sported exclusively on the 2017 Mazda CX-5. This new Soul Red Crystal color uses a state-of-the-art paint process to produce a vibrant color that gives off an unsurpassed amount of depth, luster, and richness. The brand does all of this while remaining committed to environmental sustainability: their Aqua-tech Paint System reduces emissions by 78%.

And don’t forget safety—Mazda i-ACTIVSENSE Technology uses sensors and cameras to deliver a suite of drivers assist features that will help you stay aware of potential hazards to prevent an accident from occurring or reduce the risk of one. These available features include Rear Vehicle Monitoring System, Lane Departure Warning System, Forward Obstruction Warning, and Smart City Brake Support.
