Mazda3 receives top international safety rating
The new-generation Mazda3, which was launched into the New Zealand market in April, has been awarded a maximum 5-Star rating by the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP).
In 2009, Euro NCAP has implemented a more stringent evaluation system that awards a single overall vehicle safety rating combining scores achieved in four key areas: Adult Occupant Safety Performance, Child Protection Assessment Test, Pedestrian Protection Assessment Test and Safety Equipment.
“The rating given by the European New Car Assessment Programme means the Mazda3 is one of the safest cars available in today’s market,” said Andrew Clearwater, Managing Director, Mazda New Zealand.
“We place great emphasis on producing safe vehicles that are also stylish and fun to drive. This was demonstrated again earlier this year with the Mazda6 also receiving a 5-star rating from the new Euro NCAP evaluation system. The Mazda2 received the top 5 star rating under the previous rating system in late 2007,” said Clearwater.
The Mazda3 was also recognised as a 2009 Top Safety Pick from the US Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and has been named Canadian Car of the Year 2010 – Best New Small Car, the Malaysian CIMB Preferred & Getacar’s Best Junior Sports Saloon for 2009 and Scotland’s Best Family Car 2009.
Mazda was also recently awarded the 2009 Automotive Researchers’ and Journalists’ Conference of Japan (RJC) Technology of the Year award for its unique idling stop system – i-stop. The i-stop technology reduces fuel consumption by automatically shutting down the engine when the car stops in heavy traffic and instantly restarts the engine before the car moves again.
The Mazda3 has proven to be popular in New Zealand with local buyers and consistently features in the Top 10 selling models every month since its April launch.
Other Mazda vehicles to receive international accolades this year include the rotary powered RX-8 which received Malaysian CIMB Preferred & Getacar’s Best Four Door Coupe for 2009 and the MX-5 roadster, which not only celebrated its 20th birthday but took home the Australian Wheels Gold Star Cars Awards’ Best Sports Roadster under $150,000.
BT-50 PROVIDES THE PERFECT PICKUP LINES
2 November 2011
If the BT-50 entered a beauty contest it would certainly win the award for outstanding looks and personality that have been combined with gutsy character, inspiring confidence and trust.
Andrew Clearwater, Managing Director Mazda New Zealand, says, “The BT-50 designers have done an outstanding job in creating a vehicle that has such a strong presence. This vehicle will turn many a head on New Zealand streets. It offers kiwi drivers passenger-car-like refinement and quality that overturns conventional truck expectations.”
To give it an appropriately bold, eye-catching appearance, the design team gave the new BT-50 dynamic, futuristic proportions based on a wedge shape, and adopted sporty, characteristic styling features that make it immediately recognizable as a Mazda from any angle.
Whether it’s viewed front on, side on or from the rear, the all-new BT-50 makes a statement that sees it stand head and shoulders above its competitors.
The strong, confident face is a clever reworking of several Mazda-family design elements, including an evolved version of the five-point grille. In particular, the headlamps feature a boomerang design more typical of a passenger car. The front Dynamic Prominent Fenders are an evolution of the design frequently found on Mazda passenger cars; they continue in pronounced body-side feature lines flowing to the rear, creating a strong-looking contoured form.
From the side, the new BT-50 represents a revolution in pick-up architecture. The class-topping length is used to full effect in creating a wedge-shaped profile.
The rear is also characterized by a strong horizontal contour line, echoed in the unique horizontally-aligned rear combination lamps. These sophisticated lamps give a sense of motion and speed thanks to a sporty design like the rear lamps on Mazda passenger cars. In addition, they also clearly differentiate the BT-50 from other pickups, making it immediately recognizable as a Mazda.
Such a great design requires colour to compliment it. The all-new BT-50 Mazda comes in eight body colours (including the new shades of Gunmetal Blue Mica, Sparkling Gold Mica and Aurora Blue Metallic) that combine sportiness and refinement to appeal to lifestyle customers.
Carrying friends, family members or business colleagues is a breeze in the all-new BT50 with all body types greater in length, width and height than the current BT-50. Cabin access iseven easier than on the current model thanks to larger door openings and wider dooropening angles. In particular, Mazda’s unique Freestyle Door System fitted to the Freestyle Cab allows extreme ease of entry/exit or stowing luggage behind the front seats. GSX and Limited models are also equipped with wide side steps for easy entry and exit from the high floor.
Once inside the BT-50 it’s easy to forget you are in a pickup. Every detail of the interior has been carefully thought out to give a satisfying feel of quality. An asymmetric layout for the front (wider for the passenger, narrower for the driver) gives the front passenger a spacious and comfortable area similar to a passenger car, while the driver enjoys a snug, sports style, wraparound driving environment. Front headroom is class-leading while front shoulder room is exemplary, and the Double Cab’s rear passengers enjoy top of the class headroom and legroom. Seats are newly-designed for fatigue-free driving and comfort, with the front seats offering greater adjustability.
If you want entertainment while travelling on holiday or to relieve the stress of work, the all-new BT-50 comes with a total entertainment package. All models have a radio, MP3- compatible CD player with AUX and USB inputs, with a Multi Function Display. For assured comfort, air conditioning is standard on all models. Limited models have a fully automatic dual-zone controlled air conditioning system.
Plentiful storage spaces throughout the cabin gives everybody a place for personal items. New additions include: a glove box on the driver’s side; an overhead console; a larger glove box on the passenger’s side; two cup holders on the floor console; an armrest and double-decker storage compartment; and 1-litre bottle holders in the front door pockets. The Double Cab’s rear seat has a new storage box beneath it.
The cargo box on all models is significantly enlarged over the current model to achieve class-leading capacity. Double wall construction gives durability while grooves and channels in the side walls allow easy installation of dividers or division into an upper and lower cargo area.
The keynote interior colour is black, highlighted with decorative silver elements. These silver parts on the door trim, floor console, shift knob, parking brake button, door handles, climate-control louvres, meter rings, dials. Other parts are made of different materials and have varying shades of silver according to location.
As an active lifestyle vehicle, the all-new BT-50 has to provide both comfort and utility in an enormous variety of settings. Three body types are available: the five-seater Double Cab, the two-seater Regular Cab, and the 2+2 Freestyle Cab to suit individual family or business needs.
All bodystyles are powered by the new 3.2 litre turbo-diesel engine - Mazda’s first 5 cylinder engine offering large displacement in a compact, highly-efficient unit that achieves class-leading power and torque, 147kW at 3,000 rpm and 470Nm at 1,750-2,500 rpm. All models have 6-speed manual transmissions and an optional 6-speed automatic transmission with theDouble Cab. All 4WD models feature shift-on-the-fly switching between 2WD and 4WD (high range), with the electronically controlled locking rear differential promoting off-road driveability.
Mazda commercialcare comes standard with every new BT-50 and includes: three years or 100,000km (whichever occurs first) Fixed Price Servicing, pay no more than $200 (incl. GST) per service. Scheduled service intervals are six monthly or every 10,000km (whichever occurs first). Three years or 150,000km (whichever occurs first) comprehensive Mazda Warranty cover. Three years unlimited kilometre Mazda On Call Roadside Assistance 24hrs, 365 days.
Mazda3 and SKYACTIV - Unbeatable Combination
25 November 2011
The wait is over; the highly anticipated Mazda3 GSE SKYACTIV model featuring Mazda’s innovative SKYACTIV technologies has reached New Zealand shores, as part of the launch of the new Mazda3 range.
With Mazda’s new-generation SKYACTIV technologies under its hood, the Mazda3 GSE SKYACTIV is the show stopper of the new Mazda3 range and will stand out against other small cars with its outstanding fuel efficiency and emission profile while still delivering signature performance and handling wrapped in a striking new exterior that’s impossible to ignore.
After the SKYACTIV-G 1.3 (not available in New Zealand) engine was recently named the 2012 Automotive Researchers’ and Journalists Conference of Japan (RJC) Technology of the Year, Mazda New Zealand is confident this new technology will impress local drivers as it is kind on the environment and the back pocket.
Andrew Clearwater, Managing Director, Mazda New Zealand, says, “We are very excited to be releasing the Mazda3 GSE SKYACTIV with its all-new SKYACTIV technologies. This model will offer New Zealanders a renewed driving performance with a reduced environmental impact.”
Mazda’s new SKYACTIV technologies are the result of a concerted effort by Mazda engineers to provide drivers with both green innovation and a Zoom-Zoom experience. While some rivals have embraced niche technologies like hybrid electric solutions, Mazda is staying loyal to the internal combustion engine which has great potential for improvement in energy gains but without the financial burden on owners.
With the new Mazda3 GSE SKYACTIV model, Mazda engineers worked hard to design an improved driver experience and a combination of new SKYACTIV technologies that would deliver New Zealand’s most fuel efficient, petrol-powered automatic small car.
The new model is equipped with the all-new SKYACTIV-G 2.0 litre direct injection petrol engine and the all-new SKYACTIV-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission. This delivers a greatly increased lock-up range for a more direct shift feel and fuel efficiency improvements. The introduction of a new drive control system coordinates control of the engine and transmission, resulting in an improved sporty and responsive performance.
In addition, the new Mazda3 GSE SKYACTIV is the first Mazda model in New Zealand to feature Mazda’s revolutionary new engine, transmission and engine stop technology i-Stop, Mazda’s award-winning idling stop system. It turns off the engine automatically when drivers come to a complete stop for more than five seconds (for example at traffic lights) further boosting economy by as much as 10 percent.
Using regular unleaded fuel, the new Mazda3 GSE SKYACTIV achieves a high compression ratio of 12.0:1 and delivers 113kW at 6,000 rpm and 194Nm of torque at 4,100 rpm. This equates to a slight increase in power and torque with over 25% improvement in fuel efficiency when compared to the current Mazda3 2.0 litre engine and transmission.
The new SKYACTIV-Drive 6-speed transmission makes a valuable contribution to fuel efficiency and Zoom Zoom experience by integrating the key advantages of a conventional automatic transmission, a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT).
As with all models in the new Mazda3 range, the GSE SKYACTIV is complete with superior safety, styling and comfort features, as well as state of the art engineering and new technology. The new GSE SKYACTIV is equipped with ABS Braking with EBD & EBA; Dynamic Stability Control (DSC); Traction Control System (TCS); front, side and curtain airbags; pretensioner front seat belts with load limiters; 3 x 3-point rear seat belts; engine immobiliser; cruise control with steering wheel switches; and vehicle speed sensitive power steering.
Drivers will also enjoy the comfort and convenience of a multi-information display incorporating trip computer; remote central locking; tilt and telescopic adjustable steering wheel; height & slide adjustable driver’s seat; 60/40 split rear seats; power windows and mirrors; air conditioning with dual zone climate control; and Bluetooth® Handsfree Connectivity.
On top of this, the new GSE SKYACTIV will entertain passengers and drivers with a suite of audio features including, 6-Speaker CD Player with AM/FM Tuner, MP3 Playback; AUX Input (3.5mm for MP3); and Steering Wheel Mounted Audio Controls.
The new Mazda3 is a stunner both inside and out. Additional design elements to its enhanced cabin space include piano black finishing with silver highlights and new seat trims. A smart and sporty exterior is complete with new external colours, including Sky Blue, Dolphin Grey and Autumn Bronze, as well as a new fog lamp shape (GSX, GSE and SP25 models) and new front and rear bumper designs.
The all-new GSE SKYACTIV is available in a 5-Door Hatch Body Style from Mazda dealers nationwide for $37,395. Recommended Retail Price (includes GST, excludes On-Road Costs). Every new Mazda3 comes with mazdacare as standard, including 3-years/100,000km (whichever occurs first) Mazda Scheduled Servicing, 3-years unlimited kilometre Mazda Factory Warranty and Mazda On Call Roadside Assistance.
Fiesta and Ranger win NZ Company Vehicle Car of the Year awards
Ute of the Year 2011 – All New Ford Ranger Compact Business Car of the Year 2011 – Ford Fiesta
Fri, Dec 2, 2011
Ford New Zealand today is proud to announce two more trophies have arrived for the Ford trophy case! New Zealand Company Vehicle magazine has awarded the all new Ranger Ute of the Year 2011 and the Ford Fiesta Compact Business Car of the Year 2011.
“It’s fantastic to get such excellent recognition for the Fiesta and Ranger,” said Neale Hill, Managing Director, Ford New Zealand. “And to get awards in two entirely different segments is a great demonstration of Ford excelling across what is wide range of Ford vehicles now on offer in New Zealand.”
John Oxley, Editor, NZ Company Vehicle, said the 3.2-litre turbo-diesel engine and the availability of both 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmissions available from launch day saw the new Ford Ranger win the award away from the competition.
“The Ranger offers fleet buyers a complete package,” said Oxley. “There are single cab, super cab and double cab models with the 3.2 litre, 5-cylinder engine and a 2.2-litre diesel engine is also available by special order.
“In a market where automatic gearboxes are slowly taking over as the preferred option, that’s a really critical factor for many buyers.”
On Fiesta, Oxley said it won favourable comment for its high level of specification and safety features which include a fully integrated Bluetooth hands-free connection, seven airbags including a driver’s knee airbag which has contributed to the car winning a 5-star ANCAP safety rating.
“The Ford Fiesta range won our hearts and minds this year with its blend of large car features packed into a small and economical package that’s also fun to drive,” said Oxley.
“The Fiesta is a brilliantly-handling car and really lends itself to sporty driving yet on the daily commute it’s superb, smooth and relaxed, leaving you to concentrate on what’s happening around you.”
The Ford Fiesta was launched in early 2011 while the all-new Ranger arrived in New Zealand in mid-October 2011
