NEW M{ZD{3 GVC

Carrying the heritage forward

Mazda wishes to create a presence that turns the car into the customer’s trusted life partner, rather than simply serve as a mode of conveyance. The updated Mazda3 embodies all the latest points of appeal that Mazda has to offer, as befits its nickname, “The Mazda”.

NEW GENERATION OF VEHICLE CONTROL

New Special Paint Colour – Machine Grey Metallic

Mazda is striving to develop colours that set apart the dynamics and detailed surface structure of our “KODO Design” design concept. Developed under the theme of “Pursuing refined beauty possessed by a machine”, “Machine Grey Metallic” is a special colour based on “TAKUMINURI” paint technology. That fine texture lets the formative beauty of KODO Designs stand out even more.

LANE DEPARTURE WARNING SYSTEM (LDWS)

The Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) detects line marking on the road surface and warns the driver of unintentional lane departures. This system is particularly effective in situations where the road is continuously straight and drivers have a tendency to not pay sufficient attention to the road. When the lane change is accompanied by turn signal operation or acceleration, the system recognizes the maneuver as intentional and does not sound and alarm.

ADVANCE SMART CITY BRAKE SUPPORT (SCBS)

Rear-end collisions are the most common type of accident, and approximately 60% of these occur at a relatively low speed. when SCBS detects there is the danger of a collision (while driving between approximately 4 and 80km/h when sensing a vehicle ahead or between approximately 10 and 80km/h when sensing a pedestrian ahead), the system alerts the driver using the warning sound and indication, and if a collision is unavoidable, it applies the brakes automatically to help avoid collisions and mitigate collision damage.
