Why you Need a Mazda in your Life, Now!

Mazda

Mazda, as of now, is not tethered to Ford. Right now Ford has only 2.1% of Mazda stocks. Mazda has no looming connection with any other major automobile maker as well. Mazda is the 5th largest car manufacturing company in Japan. However, the company does not have a huge cash reserve behind them. Recently, they had to sell a bunch of their shares to raise money. They have to be careful. The company knows that it has to be careful. Despite all this, the inherent advantage of the company is that they are an export-focused company. The dramatic move of Japan to weaken the Yen basically means the company is making big profits every time they sell a car somewhere where the currency is stronger, for instance, the United States.

Most probably you will be wondering what the foreign currency manipulation has to do with purchasing a Mazda car right now. Well, the fact is, for Mazda, the volume of units sold is more important in this economic condition than the price of the units. They could sell a vehicle at a lower price and still make a profit. For you, it means getting a Mazda vehicle comparatively cheaper. Apart from that, if you love bold designs and driver-focused cars, then you can definitely go in for a Mazda vehicle. The driving pleasure offered by most of the new Mazda cars is far greater than the driving pleasure offered by many of the cars available in the market today. The Mazda3, Mazda6, and Mazda CX-5 all are top-performing cars.

What you Need to Know About Mazda’s DTSS System

Mazda introduced DTSS (Dynamic Tracking Suspension System) in the 2nd generation RX-7 (1986-1988). The Mazda RX-7 is a sports car that was introduced in the year 1978. The DTSS or ‘Rear Steer’ basically controls the rear suspension system. It allows each of the rear wheels to steer by itself. Now, this is dependent on the amount of G-force generated upon the wheels while cornering. In basic stock form, when operating-cornering forces occur on the rear upright, they cause approximately one degree of toe-in on the outside wheel, because of the deflection of the DTSS bush. The whole process happens when the driver of the vehicle, expecting a small slide at the rear of the vehicle, automatically steers to the opposite direction in order to compensate for the slide.

Technically, DTSS happens incrementally depending upon the changing conditions. It is actually reacting to the cornering G-force by changing the toe alignment on each of the wheels depending on the body roll, the load of the vehicle, and the speed. DTSS is designed in such a way as to compensate for the road variations and driver input that might cause a car to lose control. However, it also interferes with the action of a sensitive driver who has to operate the vehicle close to the adhesion limit, and in general, lessens the cornering force.

In general, the DTSS works by allowing a small amount of toe-out under normal driving conditions (basically means increased responsive rotation of the rear), but induces a slight toe-in under heavier cornering loads (basically means more stable back/rear under heavier cornering).

The CX-3 Takes on Alaska!

cx3_04.ts.1502180226497830

The Alaska highway is one of the most challenging routes on the planet. It was constructed in the year 1942, by 16,000 soldiers and civilians, in just 9 months. It was created as a supply route to military outposts in Alaska. A road trip on the Alaskan highway is usually undertaken by hardened ice-road truckers.

This article is a take on zoom-zoom magazine’s Eli George’s ride on the Alaskan highway, on the Mazda CX-3 (with i-ACTIV AWD), along with Canadian snowboard champion Brad Martin. The duo started their road trip into the subarctic wilderness on the compact crossover when there has only been a little daylight left. The temperature has been 16 degrees Fahrenheit. The warmth of the CX-3’s cabin provided them good comfort from the biting cold outside. For the next two hours, the CX-3 cruised down the highway safely and comfortably. The CX-3 was able to handle the intimidating icy ruts in the middle of the highway quite efficiently while overtaking other vehicles on the road.

According to George, both Martin and himself felt quite comfortable and safe inside the high- interior of the CX-3. The all-wheel drive system of the car gave Martin that reassurance and confidence required to handle such a terrain. The i-ACTIV AWD system of the Mazda helped Martin to handle the sinewy, slippery stretches very efficiently. By the end of its 600-miles journey, apart from the fact that the CX-3 got encrusted with ice, it held out pretty well.
