Mazda celebrates its 100th anniversary

Mazda made its debut in the year 1920. Since then, Mazda vehicles have garnered fans in more than 130 countries throughout the world. The history of Mazda began in Hiroshima, where the company’s corporate headquarters are currently located. Every step in the process of creating Mazda vehicles—from development and production to promotion and sales—is concentrated in one place. Hiroshima plays host to Mazda’s designers, engineers, factory workers and marketing experts, resulting in a unified team that creates extraordinary vehicles.

Kiyoshi Fujiwara, the Representative Director of Mazda in Japan, always dreamed of designing the best car in the world. By following a different path from that of other manufacturers, he and his team succeeded in creating a fleet of vehicles like no other. Rather than simply asking his engineers to rework and improve an existing concept—which is generally the case with other vehicles—he asked them to start from scratch, rethinking everything from the design of the body to the configuration of the engine. This is precisely how many of Mazda’s proprietary concepts, including the SKYACTIV engine, the KODO design philosophy and G-Vectoring Control technology, came into being.

Mazda’s 100th anniversary marks the brand’s success in overcoming challenges that were virtually unimaginable, like taking the rotary engine from the racetrack to the road. In 1967, Mazda achieved the impossible with the Cosmo sports car, after having demonstrated persistence and innovation. It was with a rotary engine that the Mazda 787B won the Le Mans automobile race in 1991—the first time an Asian manufacturer had ever won this venerable event.

Come celebrate the brand’s 100th anniversary with us and pay a visit to our showroom in Val-David to choose your next new Mazda vehicle.

GVC: WHY AND HOW?

WHY

Progress of philosophy Jinba Ittai

 Mazda aims to offer its customers vehicles that provide driving pleasure and enrich their lives. We achieved this goal by continuing the Jinba Ittai concept, concept that the driver and the vehicle are one. Vector control force g is the first technology in the SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS series and is part of the series of SKYACTIV technologies. The SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS technologies have been developed to provide an integrated control of the engine, gearbox, chassis and bodywork to increase the Jinba Ittai feeling of the vehicle: a connection feeling between the car and the driver distinguishes the Mazda vehicles of other vehicles.

HOW

Increase the performance of the chassis using the SKYACTIV engine.

Vector control g force is made possible only through the existence of SKYACTIV engines, which provide precise control of the engine torque, and with the SKYACTIV-CHASSIS chassis, which provides the vehicle holding a perfect road. The G-vector control (GVC) optimizes tire performance by concentrating the vertical load on the tires. When the driver changes direction, the vector-control G (GVC) varies the torque to create a deceleration g force and transferring the load to the front wheels. This has the effect of increasing adhesion of the front wheels to the road surface, thus improving the response of the vehicle when cornering.
Thereafter, when the driver maintains a constant steering angle, the G-vector control (GVC) immediately restores the engine torque, which transfers the load to the rear wheels, improving stability.
This series of charge transfer provides a much better grip front and rear wheels to the pavement, which aligns response and stability of the vehicle to the driver’s intentions.
A natural feeling of control based on a human-centered development philosophy.
Mazda’s engineers studied the biomechanical relationship between man and moving vehicles to refine the vector control system of g-force to promote optimal harmonious interaction. They lined the rate of reaction and control niveua on human sensibilities.

BENEFITS G-VECTOR CONTROL (GVC)

The stresses at the wheel allow the driver to keep the vehicle in its lane, either straight or in curves. However, due to erratic and undulating road pavement, the vehicle is not always in his way as expected, forcing the driver to make adjustments to management.
Since the G-vector control (GVC) provides improved response to the slightest stress of driving, it has the effect of greatly reducing the size and frequency of adjustments to management.
The G-vector control (GVC) is as effective in reducing fatigue in the driver and passengers. Fatigue felt by the driver intensifies as and when it needs to make minor corrections to management. Since the G-vector control (GVC) helps reduce the number of corrections, it reduces fatigue during long trips. Moreover, by making transfers more fluid force g, the vector-control G (GVC) suppresses the swaying of the head and torso suffered by vehicle occupants, allowing them to enjoy a more comfortable ride.

PREPARE YOUR MAZDA FOR THE SUMMER!

We are in spring! This is also the time to do some checking and some changes to prepare his car for summer conditions. Here are 5 things to do on your vehicle just before the arrival of warm weather.

1. CHANGING TIRES

There is not a long time ago, to save money, many drivers were driving all year the 4-season tires. These tires are dangerous in winter, for which the government now requires that every car equipped with winter tires in winter. Warning! Winter tires are not new Four Seasons! From 8 degrees Celsius, approximately, they lose their grip. Not only they are not safe in hot weather, they also damage more quickly. Having two sets of tires is a safe measure, and in the end, more economical.

2. CHANGE THE OIL

Ideally, the oil is changed from one vehicle to every 5000 km, 10 000 km if the engine runs on synthetic oil.
However, if you use very little car, it is possible that 5000 km is for you a year of use. It is still recommended to change the oil after the winter, just to maximize your car’s fuel economy for the summer.

3. Change the washer fluid

A bit like tires, washer fluid is not designed to be used in summer and winter. For example, many mixes are optimized to clean squashed insects on the windshield and keep rain, while others are optimized for cold weather and to clean calcium.
Use summer windshield washer during winter can cause serious accidents, since it will freeze on the windshield, depriving you of visibility. The winter washer fluid is not as dangerous if used off-season, but it works less well in hot weather. To replace, gradually add the summer washer in your tank from April. Unless otherwise indicated, it is possible to mix the two.

4. Check wheel alignment

Winter exacts a heavy toll on our roads. The holed, the cracks and irregularities in the pavement will quickly made misalign the wheels of your car. A poorly inlined car tires wear out faster, will waste gasoline and will be harder to keep straight.
It is therefore recommended to check the wheel alignment at time of summer tires on the car. Most garages now have high precision machines that ensure an optimal driving experience. However, be aware that to bring a car can be expensive. There is talk of a base price around $ 80. But again, you will save $ 80 this increases the service life of your tires.

5. make a good car wash

The dirt that accumulates throughout the winter on your car damages the clear coat paint your car, in addition to increasing the risk of rust.
It is recommended to do a deep cleaning of your car in the spring to minimize the risk of corrosion. If you can, do apply a wax or paint sealant on the car in order to protect against UV rays of the summer sun.
