National Car Company, the sole agent for Mazda vehicles in Qatar, has introduced the new 2017 range of Mazda 3 sedans and hatchback models with additional vehicle dynamics and safety delivered by a combination of Skyactiv technology and the advanced G Vectoring Control Systems developed by Mazda. The 2017 Mazda 3 models are now on display at the state of the art showroom located in Fereej Al Nasr which is open 7 days a week from 9 am to 9 pm except on Fridays when the showroom is open during evening hours.
The well-rounded Mazda 3 sedan is ready with upgrades for 2017. This include refined exterior styling, new interior add-ons, updated active-safety features, and the addition of Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control system for improved steering response.
The well acclaimed Mazda 3 didn’t need much improvement—in its current form as it has been in the best car list for many years now. The changes for 2017 are welcome, especially the revised exterior that nicely sharpens Mazda 3’s look. The reshaped grille and headlights present a far more aggressive face to the world, and LED headlights are newly available on higher-trim models. A new rear bumper appears crisper than before.
The tireless pursuit of Jinba-Ittai..
Mazda aims to offer vehicles that provide driving pleasure and enrich the lives of their owners. It has achieved this through the pursuit of Jinba-Ittai a feeling of unity between driver and vehicle. Whether turning, braking or simply cruising, the driver controls the vehicle as naturally and easily as if it were an extension of his or her own body.
SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS technologies provide integrated control of the engine, transmission, chassis and body to enhance the vehicle’s Jinba-Ittai feel—a sense of connectedness between car and driver that differentiate Mazda vehicles from others. G-Vectoring Control
Enhancing chassis performance using the engine Mazda has always pursued smooth transitions between G-forces when braking, turning and accelerating, because it considers this an essential element of Jinba-Ittai. This results in what we refer to as a unified dynamic performance feel. In combination with consistent feedback and response in the operation of the brakes, steering wheel and accelerator, it enables the driver to control the vehicle easily and precisely. The first technology in the SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS series, G-Vectoring Control (GVC) further advances the unified feel that has always defined the dynamic performance of Mazda vehicles. Its development was based on the revolutionary idea of using the engine to enhance chassis performance, allied to Mazda’s human-centered development philosophy that focuses not only on mechanical efficiency but posits how a vehicle should be in consideration of human characteristics. By adopting GVC, Mazda vehicles will exhibit even smoother transitions between G-forces in all driving scenarios.
GVC maximizes tire performance by focusing on the vertical load on the tires. The moment the driver starts to turn the steering wheel, GVC controls engine drive torque to generate a deceleration G-force, thereby shifting load to the front wheels. This increases front-wheel tire grip, enhancing the vehicle’s turn-in responsiveness.
Thereafter, when the driver maintains a constant steering angle, GVC immediately recovers engine drive torque, which transfers load to the rear wheels, enhancing vehicle stability. Regardless of the skill of the driver, GVC demonstrates its effect consistently over a range of driving situations, from low-speed everyday driving to high-speed straight-line driving, on winding roads and during emergency avoidance maneuvers.
