How Mazda Can Help Your Fuel Efficiency

Whether you are interested in reducing the environment impact of your life or simply looking to tighten the purse strings in these challenging economic time, fuel efficiency is at the forefront of most people’s plans. You may use your vehicle for a daily commute, or simply rely on it for everyday life, but there is no need to explore the strange new developments offered by some car developers, when Mazda can assist you with fuel efficient models like the Mazda CX5.

Mazda has been a popular choice of new vehicle in the Australian marketplace for a great many years. However, one of the main reasons why Mazda is topping the sales charts for the last few years, is thanks to their continued development of improving the internal combustion engine. While many car manufacturers have directed resources into the exploration of possible alternative fuels such as hydrogen, Mazda has been busy perfecting the SkyActiv engine.

According to industry research and recent reports, the second generation model of the SkyActiv engine could be up to thirty percent more fuel efficient than the existing models. Considering the existing SkyActiv engine range currently offers very low fuel consumption rates, this is a bold move from the Japanese car giant.

For example, the current Mazda CX5 using a two litre petrol SkyActiv engine can provide a fantastic consumption of 6.4 litres per 100 kilometres using a combined cycle. Similarly, the Mazda 6 with a 2.5 litre petrol SkyActiv engine offers 100 kilometres for only 6.6 litres of fuel. The diesel SkyActiv range is even more fuel thrifty, with the 2.2 litre SkyActiv D turbo in the Mazda 6 offering 100 kilometres for only 5.4 litres.

If the proposed fuel economy changes are successfully accomplished by Mazda, this could mean a thirty percent fuel saving, with a petrol engine SUV managing average fuel economy of just 4 litres per 100 kilometres. Diesels would fare even better with a Mazda 6 diesel achieving 3.5 litre consumption per 100 kilometres.

So, is this achievable? According to Mitsuo Hitomi from Mazda, the refinements the company are planning to make to the combustion processes will achieve these results. Hitomi has been quoted as saying that the only way to dramatically improve fuel efficiency is “through lean burning”.

Lean burning would mean reducing the amount of fuel which is injected into the cylinders per specific amount of air. This technique is capable of producing increased power using smaller amounts of fuel but it does require the engine to be carefully tuned to avoid harmful gas emissions and issues with engine longevity.

Additionally, increasing the compression ratio can also boost the torque and power without compromising fuel economy. Mazda have reportedly made plans to increase the compression ratio on the SkyActiv petrol engine models from 14:1 to an amazing 18:1. This would provide fantastic results without resulting to a turbocharger.

The proposed timeline for the second generation SkyActiv range has not yet been announced but many believe that newer technologies will be needed when the new emissions legislation is mandated in Europe for 2020.

The New Mazda CX 5

With the entire Mazda range seeing changes and improvements, many people are keen to examine the new Mazda CX5. While the CX-5 has seen experienced some upgrades, the styling, safety and comfort have not been compromised, even with the introduction earlier in the year of the 2.5 litre petrol SkyActiv G engine.

 The new Mazda CX5 has incorporated a number of upgrades and changes. These include updated structural equipment including the stabilisers and bushes to improve the ride quality, a new and stylish straight lever for the transmission shift and a range of new colours to ensure that the most popular SUVs in Australia look even more aesthetically pleasing and attractive.

The Maxx Sport, mid grade CX5 has also been equipped with the latest option safety pack. This includes a rear view mirror featuring auto dimming, BSM (blind spot monitoring) and SCBS (smart city brake support). While the auto dimming feature is fairly self explanatory for the rear view mirror, the BSM system provides an audio visual warning for any vehicles which may be behind or beside the car in an unseen blind spot. This system emits a warning beep and creates an LED icon on the appropriate side mirror to highlight the potential danger. The SCBS system assists in lessening or preventing any damage caused during a low speed impact. This affects potential impacts which occur between the speeds of four and thirty kilometres per hour. The system assesses the potential danger and any possibility that there will be a collision. If the possibility percentage is high, the breaks are applied to assist the driver.

 The whole range will now also be available in Deep Crystal Blue and Blue Reflex Mica. However, the Maxx Sport model will also have a silver finish revision to the 17 inch alloy wheels. This is the same finish which is also available with the 19 inch alloys featured on the higher grade Akera and Grand Touring models.

 The ride experience is also set to be more comfortable for passengers in the front seat of the Akera and Grand Touring models.  This is accomplished with a six way powered adjustment feature for the seat, which allows the passenger to find exactly the right seat position with ease. There is also a memory function new feature for the driver’s seat, allowing the regular driver to maintain their perfect driving position effortlessly.

 The Akera model also has SCBS fitted. This makes the top of the line CX5 to be the first Mazda model of any specification or grade to offer this particular safety technology as part of the standard equipment. The pricing on the new models sees relatively modest changes. The Maxx and the Maxx sport model has no change to price, while the safety pack option will add an optional charge on the Maxx Sport model. The Grand Touring models and Akera models will have nominal price increases.
