Base Mazda3 Offers More Standard Equipment

When the 2018 Mazda3 starts rolling into Chapman Mazda later this month, you can expect to find more standard features than ever before. The popular sedan and hatchback will now come with Smart City Brake Support, a laser sensor-driven feature that applies the brakes at low speeds when it senses the risk of collision. The new Mazda3 will also come with G-Vectoring Control, an exclusive Mazda technology that improves handling and stability through corners. Stay in touch with Chapman Mazda to see when you can test drive the new Mazda3.

Loaded with Features

The Mazda3 may be affordable, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t loaded with standard features that make your daily drive much more enjoyable. Along with a peppy 2.0L SKYACTIV-G engine that delivers 155 horsepower and puts the fun back in driving, you’ll get a 7-inch infotainment screen that offers Bluetooth connectivity. Power windows, power mirrors and remote keyless entry are all part of the standard package, as is push-button ignition. Step up a bit to the Mazda3 Touring model and you get a larger engine that delivers 184 horsepower, along with heated front seats that are covered in leatherette. The Touring model comes with standard driver assistance features that include Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring. Also included are rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlamps, dual zone climate control and a power driver’s seat.

Grand Touring Model Top of Line

For the ultimate in luxury and driving pleasure, take a look at the Mazda3 Grand Touring trim package. You’ll enjoy the heated leather front seats, a color driving display that shows important vehicle information in your line of sight, and LED fog lights. Self-leveling LED headlamps, previously an option, are now standard, as are LED tail lights and daytime running lights. Add the Premium Equipment Package and you get adaptive front lighting that leads the way around corners. That grouping also includes navigation, a heated steering wheel and more driver assistance safety features designed to help you avoid collisions.

Choose Your Transmission

If you like the thought of powering through the gears, choose the six-speed manual transmission. For those who like to enjoy a more sedate drive, the six-speed automatic is a popular option. Either way, whether you choose the sedan or hatchback body style, the Mazda3 is consistently one of the best reviewed small cars in the automotive industry. See why when you take a test drive at Chapman Mazda.

Now that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has awarded the Mazda CX-5 its “Top Safety Pick +” designation, every properly-equipped model in the 2017 Mazda lineup has earned that award. When equipped with specific headlights and the optional front-crash prevention driver assistance feature, every new vehicle on the Chapman Mazda lot offers the highest level of protection in the automotive industry. “Our Mazda Proactive Safety Philosophy guides us to develop cars and crossover SUVs that are nimble and direct-feeling to help a driver avoid incidents altogether. Our vehicles are designed and engineered to help protect the driver and passengers if a collision happens,” according to Mazda VP Masashi Otsuka. “To Mazda, safety is about empowering the driver as much as helping to protect him or her. We’re proud of the accomplishments of the CX-5 development team and appreciative of the IIHS’s recognition.”

Strict Standards for Top Safety Pick + Rating

The IIHS has strict standards for awarding the designation of Top Safety Pick +. A vehicle must rate at least “Good” in five different crash tests, an acceptable or good rating in headlight testing, and advanced or superior rating when it comes to preventing a head-on crash. Mazda’s suite of i-ACTIVSENSE driver assistance features are a big reason why all the vehicles in the lineup are rated so highly for safety. Radar sensors work with the cruise control to keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle immediately in front. Lane keep assist helps stop drifting on those long, lonely drives, and traffic sign recognition alerts you to impending danger. The CX-5 comes with standard Smart City Brake Support to help in the crazy stop and go traffic of an urban environment. Standard LED headlights illuminate the night so you can identify hazards more quickly.

2017 CX-5 Full of Changes

From a new 2.2L engine and a quicker-shifting transmission to a complete redesign of the interior and exterior, the 2017 Mazda CX-5 has quite a few changes from the previous model. Mazda engineers mirrored many of the changes to the larger CX-9, a premium SUV that was noted for its quiet interior and use of upscale materials. Mazda listened to its customers and provided features like standard LED headlights and taillights, an available power lift gate, optional heads-up display that puts information in the eyesight of the driver, and plenty of USB charging ports. See all the innovations for yourself and test-drive the ultra-safe CX-5 when you visit Chapman Mazda today.

Blind Test Shows Luxury Owners Prefer Mazda

When premium car owners were put to the test, five out of six participants chose Mazda over their luxury brand. The results of that study are shown in a new television advertising campaign titled the “Driver’s Choice Event.” In the study, both the Mazda and the premium vehicle were disguised using camo-wrap and foam pads. Participants were asked for feedback following a test drive. The results were shocking to the luxury car owners, to say the least. “This was a risky, but fun way for us to gain insight into what our customers experience when they visit a dealership,” according to Russell Wager, Mazda North America vice president. “By removing any preconceived notions about he vehicles, we were able to prove that Mazda vehicles offer similar, if not better, premium amenities and craftsmanship that are typically reserved for luxury brands.” If you haven’t driven a Mazda lately, there’s no better time to take a test drive at Chapman Mazda.

Ad Features CX-9 and Mazda6

The advertisement features the Mazda CX-9 full-size SUV and Mazda6 premium sedan. Both vehicles offer top-of-the-line features such as a Bose sound system, Nappa leather seats and a heads-up display that relays important vehicle information in full color. Where these vehicles differ from those considered in a “premium” class is the price sticker. The CX-9 starts at just a bit over $31,000, while the Mazda6 begins at just under $22,000. While options certainly up those prices, these two vehicles still come in at thousands less than more premium nameplates.

CX-9 Meticulously Crafted

The entire Mazda lineup consists of vehicles that are meticulously crafted by artisans, but none more so than the CX-9. The Mazda CX-9 offers a Signature Trim level that includes Nappa leather, genuine Rosewood accents and brushed aluminum trim. The result is a multi-sensory driving experience that is the epitome of sophistication and comfort. With three rows of seating to comfortably accommodate seven passengers, the CX-9 is the perfect vehicle for busy families who like to take weekend adventures. Available all-wheel drive means you don’t have to hesitate to go off-road and explore the roads you’ve never seen before.

Mazda6 Features G-Vectoring Control

The Mazda6 may have two more doors than the normal sports car, but that doesn’t mean it can’t handle whatever you dish out. With the innovative G-Vectoring Control system to help reduce body roll, the Mazda6 not only takes corners like it was glued to a rail, but also eliminates the fatigue factor that comes with battling a vehicle over long periods of time or distance. Chose the Grand Touring trim package and you not only get a vehicle that earns 35 mpg on the highway, but also has premium features such as a moon roof, LED lighting, heated side mirrors, navigation and a suite of driver assistance safety features. Go ahead and drive the premium cars if you wish, but before you make a purchase stop by Chapman Mazda and see why driving matters.

It took 47 Samurai and an unyielding vision to create affordable cars that offered dynamic driving experiences with modern style to turn Mazda into the premier auto manufacturer it is today. In 1961, the company banked all its resources on the development of the rotary engine. Unfortunately, upon the testing of the prototype for that engine, the motor seized. What would have been doom for most fledgling companies turned into an opportunity. Mazda collected all of its chief engineers into a group known as the 47 Samurai and gave them the task of making the rotary engine a success. Where others had failed, this group succeeded and the result was the 1967 Cosmo Sport 110s, the first production twin-rotor rotary car ever produced. Although they only built a little more than 1,100 of the Cosmo Sports, the never-say-die attitude carried on, creating such lasting products as SKYACTIV technology and the Kodo-Soul of Motion design philosophy that rules Mazda today. If you haven’t looked at a Mazda recently, take some time to inspect the inventory and take a test drive at Chapman Mazda.

Rotary Engine Peaked with LeMans Victory

The high point for the Mazda rotary engine came in 1991 with the Mazda 787B, powered by a quad-rotor motor, was victorious at the grueling 24 hours of LeMans. The rotary engine proved to be a huge success for the company, which built almost 2 million vehicles powered by the innovative setup. Although the rotary engine was an important part of the Mazda history, it was by no means the most important. Mazda’s devotion to the principle of “hashiru yorokobi,” or the exhilaration, well-being and joy that comes from driving, is the reason people love their Mazdas today. Critics from across the auto industry love the Mazda lineup, whether they’re testing the large CX-9 SUV or the sporty MX-5 Mazda Miata. The reason is that Mazda is a car company that never deviates from the goal of creating an experience where the driver and car act as one.

SKYACTIV Technology the Latest Breakthrough

Mazda’s SKYACTIV technology ensures that every component, no matter how small or large, works as one with all the other parts of the vehicle. The result is a powerful, efficient lineup that is not only fun to drive, but delightful to look at. Offering technology that creates the highest engine compression ratio in the industry, Mazda gets the most out of every drop of fuel while reducing emissions. Lightweight and rigid bodies provide greater handling while protecting the driver and passengers from the dangers of the road. See how Mazda continues to push the boundaries of technology to create the ultimate driving experience when you take a visit to Chapman Mazda.

Using a milliwave radar system that’s integrated with onboard cameras, Mazda i-ACTIVSENSE is a suite of features that utilizes ground-breaking technology to keep you and your passengers safe on the road. The i-ACTIVSENSE suite is working all the time to not only alert you to potential problems or collisions, but takes steps to avoid those wrecks or reduce the severity when an accident is unavoidable. It’s all part of Mazda’s “Jinba Ittai” philosophy of creating a seamless integration between car and driver. Experience the joy of driving by taking a test ride at Chapman Mazda.

Works With Passive Safety Technology

The i-ACTIVSENSE technology works in concert with the passive design of every Mazda that incorporates a rigid SKYACTIV body structure that helps reduce injury in the event of a collision. A ring structure surrounds every vehicle occupant, working with seatbelt pre-tensioners, an extensive airbag system and load limiter to help protect your precious cargo.

Intelligent Transport System Wave of Future

Mazda continues to break ground with new technology designed with safety in mind. The Intelligent Transport System is the result of 25 years of testing and design. By communicating with other vehicles and even pedestrians, ITS will help drivers avoid potential life-threatening situations when it becomes available in the very near future. ITS will not only help improve safety on the road, but its ability to see the big picture and communicate with other vehicles will also go a long way to solve the urban gridlock problem that is creating parking lots out of highways in large cities.

Why Should You Choose a Mazda?

Aside from the emphasis on safety, there are many reasons to make a Mazda your next vehicle. Most people spend about four years of their life behind the wheel of a car. Mazda believes you should make the most out of every second, celebrating the driving experience rather than just worrying about getting from Point A to Point B. Every Mazda is the result of a painstaking dedication to design and engineering built around the philosophy of bring joy to every driver’s life. With the goal of creating a vehicle that stirs emotions out of metal, the Mazda craftspeople start with clay, sculpting a vehicle with a soul. That’s the philosophy behind their KODO “Soul of Motion” design.

Why should you drive a Mazda? Because that’s the company that believes “Driving Matters.” Whether you choose to let your hair down in the Mazda Miata or haul your kids to school in a CX-9, Mazda wants every drive to be an enjoyable experience. Experience the Mazda difference for yourself by inspecting the inventory and taking a test drive or two at Chapman Mazda.
