Mazda CX-30: the pure beauty of ‘less is more’.
The design of the luggage room is enhanced practicality and generous capacity to satisfy virtually all lifestyle requirements. The liftgate is wide and the lip is set low, making it easy to load even heavy cargo or suitcases. The floor and side trim feature non-woven fabric to help prevent bags from getting scratched. Together with a simple wall structure, this creates a pleasing impression of spaciousness and quality.
Mazda’s Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture is aimed at enabling you to fully maintain your balance even inside the vehicle. With human characteristics as the overriding design directive for the seats, body and chassis as a whole, Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture realizes ride comfort, handling stability and vehicle motion that perfectly matches human sensibilities and always feels familiar and natural to driver and passengers alike.
To place the accelerator pedal exactly where your right foot falls naturally, all Mazdas are designed around the driving position with the front wheels further forward to create the space required for correct pedal location. The result is a relaxed, natural driving posture allowing you to operate the vehicle just as you desire, with minimal stress and effort.
GVC Plus is one more way Mazda’s human-centric engineering makes vehicle movement more responsive, more confidence- inspiring and just more comfortable. As you enter a bend, GVC Plus momentarily lowers engine torque to transfer weight to the front wheels and enhance grip. Then as you go through the curve, engine torque is restored to shift weight rearwards for greater stability. Finally, as you exit the bend brake force is slightly applied to the outer wheels to help recover straight-line running. This seamless, behind-the-scenes control greatly reduces the need for mid-bend steering corrections, smoothes the e ect of G forces to reduce body sway, and lowers stress and fatigue on long drives.
Assured control of sound in the cabin — whether noise or music — is another key element of driving pleasure, superbly achieved by Mazda Harmonic Acoustics. This far-reaching audio initiative was developed to create a quiet cabin that insulates you from unwanted and distracting outside noise, while still allowing for the subtle sounds from the road and engine that add to the driving experience. It also drove the design of the audio system to deliver the same rich sound at both low and high volumes. Particular attention was paid to speaker placement to give deep, satisfying bass and clear, well-localized mid- and high-frequencies.
Mazda developed Skyactiv-G is a engine that compresses the air-fuel mixture to a much higher degree than in conventional powerplants, squeezing far more energy from every drop of fuel. This high compression ratio, unparalleled among mass production engines, delivers both sheer driving pleasure and outstanding fuel economy. And it’s further enhanced by a raft of innovative Mazda technologies including optimized intake ports and piston shape, split fuel injection and a coolant control valve.
Inattention and fatigue are a common cause of accidents. Driver Monitoring’s infrared camera and LED mounted in the centre display constantly check the driver for drowsiness, inattention and fatigue at two levels: Attention (onset of inattention or drowsiness) and Caution (increased levels). If the system determines the situation is dangerous, it sounds an alert and primes the Smart Brake Support (SBS) system.
LDWS employs a forward-sensing camera to monitor lane markings on the road ahead, constantly checking whether the vehicle is correctly centred in the lane. When unintentional lane departure is detected, LDWS warns the driver by vibrating the steering wheel or sounding an alert. The system operates when the car is moving forwards at speeds higher than approximately 60 km/h.
CTS helps reduce driver fatigue when in tr jams on the highway. When engaged, CTS automatically controls vehicle speed to keep a suitable distance from the vehicle ahead, and also assists with steering torque to maintain proper lane position through bends. If lane markings are not detected, the system follows the path of the preceding vehicle. In this way, CTS promotes a safe, comfortable driving experience.
from the front left and right blind spots can easily occur. FCTA uses front side radars to monitor these front diagonal blind spots and warn the driver of approaching vehicles. The system operates when the car is moving at speeds up to approximately 10 km/h and is only designed to detect the presence of motor vehicles.
When reversing, low objects behind the vehicle are hard, or even impossible, to see from the driver’s seat. SBS-R’s rear-facing ultrasonic sensor detects such obstacles behind the vehicle when reversing at speeds between approximately 2 and 8 km/h. If the system determines the driver is unaware of the obstacle and judges that a collision is imminent, it applies the brakes to help reduce collision damage.
Vehicles approaching from the left or right at the rear of the vehicle are another source of danger when reversing. SBS-RC detects vehicles approaching from the vehicle’s left and right rear blind spots when reversing at speeds between approximately 0 and 10 km/h. If the system judges an impact is unavoidable, it operates the brakes to help mitigate damage caused by the collision.
