Active Head Restraints

Active Head Restraints

To minimise the load applied to an occupant’s neck in a rear impact, it’s essential to minimise the extent to which the head moves relative to the chest. An effective method is to quickly hold the head in position so it’s not thrown rearward. Active head restraints help achieve this.

Activematic Transmission

Activematic (automatic) Transmission

Mazda's Activematic (automatic) transmissions are engineered to deliver the optimum balance in acceleration, minimal shift lag, ride comfort, quietness and fuel economy. The system allows the driver to choose between standard automatic and a manual mode where gear selections can be made by the driver. Activematic is available on select models of the Mazda3 and Mazda6

Active Torque Split

Airbags and Seatbelts

If a collision occurs, MAIDAS disperses the impact energy and keeps occupants safe by minimising cabin deformation. Because we're looking at a frontal impact, the airbags should now deploy to supplement the seatbelts.

ABS

Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)

ABS works by detecting individual wheel-lock and momentarily releasing the brakes on that wheel, by decreasing the amount of brake fluid supplied to the wheel to allow the wheel to regain traction.

Bioplastics

Bioplastics

Currently, petroleum-derived plastics are used in various parts of automobiles. New materials are being sought that eliminate petroleum-resource dependence, cut CO2 emissions and enable fuel economy to be improved through decreased car weight.

Common-Rail Diesel Engine

Common-Rail Diesel Engine

Common-Rail technology optimises fuel injection to match driving conditions, achieving efficient combustion at all times to establish a balance between high output and fuel economy.

Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)

Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)

DSC helps prevent understeer or oversteer by managing the braking force and engine torque delivered to individual wheels. DSC helps you stay on track under any road conditions. DSC is a standard feature on all Mazda vehicles.

Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD)

Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD)

EBD allocates braking force to the wheels with the most grip, according to vehicle loading.

Emergency Brake Assist (EBA)

Emergency Brake Assist (EBA)

Brake-assist monitors brake pedal force and input speed to determine when emergency braking is occurring. When detected, it automatically applies maximum braking force to all wheels.

Friction Heat Welding

Friction Heat Welding

Mazda has developed the world's first direct spot joining technology to join steel and aluminum.

Mazda Advanced Impact Distribution and Absorption System (MAIDAS)

Mazda Advanced Impact Distribution and Absorption System (MAIDAS)

The Mazda Advanced Impact Distribution and Absorption System (MAIDAS) offers superior protection for occupants due to impact absorption technologies.

Three Layer Wet Paint System

Three Layer Wet Paint System

Coating has always been the process that creates the greatest environmental burden during automobile production. The volatile organic compounds (VOC) generated during a vehicle's coating procedures account for about 95 percent of total emissions for the entire production process. Additionally, each coat requires its own baking and drying process and these are responsible for roughly 60 percent of all CO2 emissions.

Traction Control System (TCS)

Traction Control System (TCS)

Wheel speed sensors determine when a wheel loses traction and as a result, engine torque to that wheel is reduced. Brakes are applied to the traction-less wheel and it is slowed down to match speed of the other driven wheel(s). TCS is a standard feature on all Mazda vehicles.

Whiplash Minimising Seat Design

Whiplash Minimising Seat Design

In the event of a rear impact, whiplash-minimising front seats protect the necks of the driver and front passenger.
