Mazda3’s Infotainment Named Safest and Most Ergonomic

Mazda 3’s Infotainment Named Safest and Most Ergonomic | Wantagh Mazda | Wantagh, NY

The Mazda3 is an attention-grabbing machine not only for its outstanding style and thrilling, smooth performance, but also for its innovative tech that makes every drive more fun, connected, and enjoyable. One such notable tech feature in the Mazda3 we really appreciate is the touch-less infotainment system.

Instead of a touch screen found in new cars today, the Mazda3 opts for a rotary dial to help you control your entertainment and infotainment selections. The dial not only offers a unique look to the Mazda3, but it’s designed to be a safer tool than the touch screen interface most automakers rely on in their vehicles.

According to a study done by Germany’s Allgemeiner Deutsher Automobil-Club (ADAC), the largest motoring association in Europe, and the Augsburg University of Applied Sciences, Mazda’s approach is definitively safer than the rest. 

“The Mazda3 turned out to be the clear winner, because of the fact that the infotainment, navigation, and other vehicle systems are controlled via an ergonomically placed rotary dial, much like that which characterizes BMW’s iDrive system,” reports Sebastian Cenizo, writer for CarBuzz.com.

Mazda3 Highlights

The 2022 Mazda3 comes in a choice of two body styles: sedan and hatchback. The infotainment system features available smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

Mazda Makes the Color White Even Better

Mazda is all about celebrating the beauty of clean design and subtle features — that’s why the automaker is stepping up its game with the new Rhodium White Premium paint color. While white car paint may sound simple — and maybe even boring — Rhodium White Premium breaks that stereotype by incorporating exquisite artistry, the latest technology, and unparalleled attention to detail.

Rhodium White Premium boasts a subtly metallic sheen and a fine grain, making it perfect for showing off the precise sculpting of Mazda vehicles. This simple-but-elegant exterior color is given exceptional depth by a three-layer painting technique. Its color layer boasts a newly developed pigment that allows the manufacturers to use 30% less paint — while achieving the same pure, rich color. By reducing the amount of resources used, Rhodium White Premium-painted models are more eco-friendly to produce.

The reflective layer is comprised of ultra-thin, high luminance aluminum flakes. This layer’s fine-grained nature enables it to be about 7% of the thickness of a typical reflective layer. It boasts all the beauty of a classic metallic paint while putting less strain on natural resources and producing fewer emissions. These two layers are then topped off with a glossy clear coat that protects the exterior and enhances its eye-catching shine.

Rhodium White Premium will be available on the brand’s upcoming models. When these stunning vehicles arrive, you’ll be able to see them in person at Wantagh Mazda.

IIHS tested the 2022 Mazda3 Sedan, Mazda3 Hatchback, Mazda CX-30, Mazda CX-5, and Mazda CX-9. All passed the necessary criteria with flying colors. The IIHS also introduced a new, tougher side impact test that will be part of the criteria next year, but the Mazda CX-5 already aced the evaluation.

“Achieving the IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ Award is a reflection of Mazda’s commitment to providing advanced safety technologies that our owners expect,” said Mazda North American Operations President and CEO Jeff Guyton.

2021 Mazda CX-5 Earns Top Score in IIHS Side Impact Test

2021 Mazda CX-5 | Wantagh, NY

In October, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tested 20 new small SUVs to see how they would hold up to a tougher side impact test. Only one vehicle earned the IIHS’ top score for side impact: the 2021 Mazda CX-5.

The 2021 Mazda CX-5, which is an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+, was the lone small SUV the IIHS rated good for side impact. IIHS’ new test uses a heavier, 4,180-pound barrier moving at 37 mph. Previous tests featured a 3,300-pound barrier traveling at 31 mpg. The Ring Structure unibody construction of the 2021 Mazda CX-5 allowed it to withstand the impact better than the other 19 small SUVs tested.

IIHS says that the goal of the new test is to more accurately simulate the effects of a crash with another SUV or pickup. And of all the vehicles put to that test, only the Mazda CX-5 passed with flying colors.

“We developed this new test because we suspected there was room for more progress, and these results confirm that,” says IIHS President David Harkey. “The good rating for the CX-5 shows that robust protection in a more severe side crash is achievable.”

Mazda continues to ensure that its vehicles offer the latest in active, passive, and driver-assist safety features. The 2021 Mazda CX-5 and other vehicles in the new Mazda lineup include standard i-ACTIVSENSE® safety technologies including Advanced Smart City Brake Support with Pedestrian Detection.
