Mazda has decided to rein in their knowledge and experience and make a new improved model in the manner that in no way resembles the other models in its class. In doing so, they significantly improve the already good quality and leading “triple” on the threshold of the premium segment, the price of the standard. The new 2014 Mazda3 2.0 SKYACTIV-G165 Sport leaves no one indifferent. Car design has many important because through him leave the message about your status and style. However, the real enthusiasts look is still a sideshow. Car viewing only while approaching him in the parking lot, and then the crucial thing becomes atmosphere in the cabin and the way it drives. The Japanese do not hide their desire to get closer to the premium segment and succeeded in that to a large extent and succeeded.
Required dose of vitality and unconventionality that fits into the design of the cab give details such as imitation material made of carbon fiber instrument panel in the center of which is dominated by speedometer, and even a small “head up” display in front of the driver. Seats are mounted low, they are comfortable, but also provide good support without excessive aggressiveness. Also, the resting place for the left leg is close to the ground, the less tiring during long rides. The steering wheel and seats are adjusted in all directions allow the driver to take the position that really suits him.
In order to better and easier to connect the driver with the car, designers created a system of “Connect,” which consists of a display at the top of the center console and the controls that are located under the right arm, right behind shifters. The system can adjust the touch screen, but he’s not close enough, so it is easier to use a central joystick and buttons around it. Unsurprisingly, even in the most expensive package of equipment is not available for automatic starters, all four windows, but only for the driver.
Package Revolution is indeed very rich. Standard make electric drivers window, front, rear and side air bags with curtains, rain sensor and headlights, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connection, bi-xenon headlights with active LED day light, front and rear parking sensors, front seat heaters, aluminum alloy diameter of 18 inches. There is also a Bose sound system, cruise control, a “hands-free” lock, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, “head up” display, Smart City Brake system, warning of the dangers of vehicles in “dead corner”. From accessories, tested the car had only navigation system with detailed maps of Serbia and the special red metallic color.
Design and Exterior
When constructing a new generation of the “triple” engineers were guided by the desire to achieve the highest possible efficiency, and it achieved a maximum reduction in weight and engine designs. Direct benefits of which have the performance, economy and management. A well balanced chassis that allows adding and subtracting gas auto install or the subjects of curvature as the hand, and that at the exit of curve enjoy a very controlled understeer right on the outline of the track. Trunk: 364 Liter was equipped with wheels of 18 inches. However, depreciation and long and potholes is good. What is surprising is excellent acoustic and mechanical isolation.
2014 Mazda3 2.0 SKYACTIV-G165: volume 1,998 cc; power of 121kW (165 hp) at 6000 r / min; torque 210 Nm at 4000 r / some may spruce up the body, the cabin exudes solidity. Used materials are of high quality and good workmanship and panels are integrated. And now we come to probably the best part of the car, its engine. When in this impressive car you can extract a single element, it is obvious that he is very special. The two-liter aspirated petrol engine develops 165 horsepower, acceleration 0-100 km / h 8.2 s. Perhaps you do not seem like anything special, but here is the most important way in which he develops his strength. Large torque is available from the lowest speed, and acceleration are lightning effortless push in high cycles and the need for a turbocharger. Of course, if the accelerator pedal is pressed fully, the engine will quickly jump to the limiter with a very exciting sound from the exhaust, and intake manifolds.
Thanks to measures to increase efficiency, Mazda has managed to provide excellent fuel economy. Average test amounted to 7.4 liters, which is an excellent result for a car like this and the time at which we tested it. In the city, the consumption is around 8.5 liters on the highway between four and five liters, while the high way consumes between 6.3 and 7.5 liters, depending on driving style. With a sporty engine goes well with the six-speed transmission of gears that are near “stacked”.
Smart City Brake System using lasers “observe the” traffic ahead even if the sudden appearance of obstacles, the driver is alerted, and if he does not respond then applies the brakes. The system operates at hurry up to 40 km / h and significantly reduces the risk of collision in the city and hitting pedestrians. Most cars that have contactless lock requests to hand hover over the button on the handle to lock it. Mazda’s system is one of the few that is activated automatically when the driver is away from the car. The system can connect to external devices via two USB ports and an SD memory card, then the AUX input, using Bluetooth protocols and even wi-fi network.
