The premiere of the new generation Mazda 3 took place in Moscow. It will be sold in sedan and hatchback bodies in dealer networks in Russia. Hatchbacks will be the first to go on sale.
Considering the car as a whole, it can be called "completely new." In addition to the fresh design, it implements many technical solutions.
For example, in the rear suspension, a beam replaced the multi-link. According to the manufacturer, the car did not lose control at all, but in terms of comfort it only added. Now the updated G-Vectoring Control + system is included in the car’s equipment. The principle of its work is that, depending on the intensity and speed of the steering wheel, the speed of the car, the electronics regulate the motor traction.
Innovations also touched the line of engines. At the start of sales, Russians will have access to the 2 version of the Skyactiv-G units - the 1,5 liter with 120 horsepower. and 2 liter on 150 hp However, in the fall, it is expected that a car with a two-liter Skyactiv-X family engine will enter the market. It is special in that the ignition of the combustible mixture in it is carried out by compression. According to experts, the introduction of the new technology will allow to increase the torque by 10-30% compared with SkyActive-G engines.
Engineers at the Japanese carmaker have already calculated that the fuel consumption of SkyActive-X engines will look beneficial even against diesel engines.
In terms of equipment, the new "treshka" will receive adaptive cruise control and a full forcemeat of safety features - a warning system for exiting the lane, a system for switching lights from far to near, and an automatic braking system for recognizing pedestrians.
At the moment, dealers offer three trim levels of the new Mazda 3 and are already taking orders for it.
