• Spotlight on the Mazda CX-3, an all-new small SUV, and Mazda MX-5 roadster
  • Six SKYACTIV-based models on display following model launch offensive

Geneva / Leverkusen, 3 March 2015. On stage together for the first time: Mazda is presenting its complete line-up of new-generation models at the 85th Geneva Motor Show, which got under way today with the first of two press days.

The star of the show is the all-new Mazda CX-3, which makes its European debut. Mazda’s first small SUV features a stunning KODO – Soul of Motion design and, following its world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show, has been called a reason to get excited about and potentially the most entertaining model in its class. The CX-3 blends Mazda’s typically sporty handling with an uncompromising balance between performance and fuel economy (starting at only 4.0l/100km* for CO2 emissions of 105g/km). There is choice aplenty, too, with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, petrol or diesel power, connectivity technology and an extensive range of active safety systems.

Sharing the limelight, the all-new Mazda MX-5 carries the torch for the legendary lightweight roadster into its fourth generation. Mazda’s latest icon will be available with one of two SKYACTIV-G petrol engines putting out up to 118kW/160PS. It is also offered with i-stop and i-ELOOP, respectively Mazda’s advanced idle-stop and brake energy regeneration systems.

Also on stage, the 2015 Mazda CX-5 and 2015 Mazda6 are the newest versions of the very first two models of Mazda’s current generation. The all-new Mazda2, meanwhile, has added several awards to Mazda’s trophy case since its recent launch. They all join the Mazda3, now the “oldest” car on stage only 18 months after it was first revealed – the consequence of a rigorous model offensive that has seen five vehicles introduced in the past six months.

Press materials including photos and detailed information about Mazda at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show are now available online.

1. Introduction

Geneva 2015: Mazda‘s unbridled potential

Mazda is coming off another successful year in Europe in 2014. There’s no let-up in sight either, as demonstrated by the company’s aggressive model offensive: five launches in six months.

All are on display at the 85th Geneva International Motor Show. Specifically, three brand-new model generations – the Mazda CX-3, Mazda MX-5 and Mazda2 – alongside the 2015 Mazda CX-5 and 2015 Mazda6.

The initial media response to the all-new Mazda CX-3, which makes its European premiere, has been overwhelming following its unveiling in the U.S., Japan and Australia. This is very encouraging in a segment expected to be one of the industry’s fastest growing in the coming years.

Instead of looking at competing models, Mazda studied the people most likely to buy the company’s first-ever small SUV – young, active and creative – and designed it around their needs and expectations. As a result, the CX-3 is an entirely new product. Based on Mazda’s SKYACTIV Technology, fuel-efficient fun is a guarantee in either front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD) guise. And its KODO looks, smartphone con­nectivity system and vast line-up of active safety technology should resonate loud and clear with this target group.

Sharing the spotlight at Mazda’s stand, the all-new Mazda MX-5 carries on the light­weight sports car tradition that began some 25 years ago. The fourth-generation road­ster was created to appeal to the senses of those around the world who love to drive.

Alongside these two newest Mazdas are three highly lauded models, all of which re­cently went on sale in Europe. Initial demand for the all-new Mazda2, 2015 Mazda CX-5 and 2015 Mazda6 bodes well for Mazda in its effort to maintain the strong momentum in Europe during the current year.

Chassis & body
Conceived to offer unre-stricted and inspiring mobility, the Mazda CX-3 is available with either front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD). The refined suspen-sion delivers confidence-inspiring handling and road stability, while the remarkably stiff yet lightweight SKYACTIV-Body offers outstanding crash protection and more.


  • Electric power-assisted steering adapted from the Mazda2 for the CX-3’s added weight, higher centre of gravity and bigger powertrains
  • Freedom expanding new-generation AWD system features
    • innovative front-wheel slip warning detection system that employs 27 sensor signals to monitor the driver’s intentions and constantly changing road conditions, instantly transmitting drive power to the appropriate wheels
    • active torque control coupling determines how much grip each wheel needs, automatically and instantly distributing the right amount of torque to each wheel


  • Outstanding strength and collision safety despite being lightest body-in-white in its class
  • Adopted similar NVH measures to Mazda2 and more to handle the larger petrol engine and AWD with minimal added weight while putting the CX-3 on par with C-segment cars when it comes to high-frequency noise
  • Aerodynamics concept based on streamlining underbody air flow and improving the balance of the upward and downward flows that converge at the rear of the body by:
    • optimising shapes to enhance airflow around the car, from the front bumpers to the D-pillar garnishes
    • adding various undercarriage covers
The Mazda CX-3’s considerable range of i-ACTIVSENSE active safety technology is another aspect of the unrestricted mobility concept behind Mazda’s first small SUV.

i-ACTIVSENSE – safety technology*

  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC) uses 76GHz radar to monitor speed and distance to preceding vehicles, adjusting the throttle and brakes to maintain a safe trailing distance
  • Distance Recognition Support System (DRSS) displays distance to preceding vehicles based on radar measurements, flashing an icon if the CX-3 gets too close
  • Forward Obstruction Warning (FOW) sounds an alert and warns the driver to take evasive action if DRSS detects an increased collision risk
  • Smart Brake Support (SBS) uses 76GHz radar together with a camera to monitor the road for vehicles and obstacles, pressurising the brakes should FOW sound an alert and applying them lightly at first and with increasing pressure should the danger persist
  • Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) is a near-infrared camera based low-speed (4-30km/h) emergency braking system that, like SBS, first pressurises the brakes and then applies them to prevent or at least reduce the severity of an impact with a vehicle or obstacle up to 6m ahead
  • Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) uses 24GHz radar to keep tabs on the road to the sides and rear of the CX-3, warning of vehicles approaching in adjacent lanes with a flashing indicator in the side mirror and a buzzer sound should the driver signal a lane change. BSM thereby extends the functionality of the Rear Vehicle Monitor­ing (RVM) system to the areas on either side of the car, also adding Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), which warns the driver when reversing of vehicles approaching from the sides
  • Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) examines the lane markings using a cam­era and warns the driver of unintentional lane changes
  • High Beam Control (HBC) switches auto­matically between high and low beams to avoid impairing other motorists’ vision,using a camera to monitor oncoming headlights and the taillights of preceding vehicles

* System availability depends on trim level and market

Passive safety

  • The CX-3’s SKYACTIV-Body is reinforced in the name of top-class crash safety pro-tection. It features:
    • stronger 1,180MPa floor panels to better absorb frontal impact forces & protect cabin
    • stiffer B-pillars and high-strength steel door reinforcements and outer panels
    • a front overhang providing a larger crumple zone, also preventing engine compartment damage from a mild im­pact, thus limiting repair costs
  • Rear bumper crush cans with cruciform shaped cross-section reinforcing membersalong with beads to control rear side frame deformation

4. The Models in stage at Geneva

An overview

2015 Mazda6

Giving the flagship a sophisticated maturity, the 2015 Mazda6 adds some tantalising high­lights to its award-winning KODO design and efficient lightweight SKYACTIV Technology. The revolutionary heads-up cockpit adds new meaning to the cabin’s usability care of Mazda’s latest human-machine interface. It helps the driver reap the most from the new connectivity and infotainment technology, thanks to the head-up display, 7-inch touchscreen ergonomically positioned on top of the centre stack, and the rotary commander on the redesigned centre console. As for style, the interior features a new blend of fashionably subtle high-quality materials. Outside, the 2015 Mazda6 gets full-LED headlights with new lighting signatures front and back as well as a stronger nose, more prominent signature wing and redesigned wheels. And for the first time, a Mazda6 diesel is offered with the company’s unique new-generation all-wheel drive tech-nology, which features an intelligent front-slip detection warning system. The suspension, too, was restructured to smoothen out the road for greater ride comfort, increased stabil­ity and a better initial steering response. Like the 2015 CX-5, the 2015 Mazda6 features sev­eral new active safety systems. Mazda’s most advanced array of i-ACTIVSENSE protection yet gives the driver more flexibility than ever in choosing the desired level of direct assis­tance. As for powertrains, it retains the same unconventional combination of outstanding performance with top-class fuel economy. In short, it’s a flagship whose looks evoke high expectations about performance that its engi­neering can more than fulfil. Widening the gap in front of its mainstream mid-sized competi­tors, the 2015 Mazda6 is knocking on the door of the premium class.

2015 Mazda CX-5

Having quickly rose to become Mazda’s best-selling model in Europe, the 2015 Mazda CX-5 now leads the brand’s evolution once more. The company revamped its KODO – Soul of Motion design a more powerful grille, sharper LED head- and taillight signatures and re­designed wheels. It also achieved a quieter, smoother ride by enhancing the suspension and shock absorbers, and installing additional insulation and thicker glass. Speaking of com­fort, Mazda embarked upon extensive cabin upgrades, with a new level of design and material quality to go with revamped seats and a bigger and better centre console fea­turing (among other things) a space-saving electric parking brake. Unsurprisingly, the 2015 Mazda CX-5 is available with Mazda’s latest technology such as the intuitive MZD Connect in-car connectivity system, a 7-inch touchscreen, and a redesigned rotary commander to controlit all. Brand-new active safety systems, meanwhile, include Advanced LED Headlights (ALH) and Driver Attention Alert (DAA) along with the CX-5 debuts of Smart Brake Support (SBS) and Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC).

There’s no shortage of oomph with the com­pany’s most powerful engine – the SKYACTIV-G 2.5 with i-ELOOP brake energy regenera­tion system – added to the already formidable line-up of clean diesel and petrol powerplants transferring power to the front or all four wheels via SKYACTIV automatic and manual gearboxes.


The Mazda2 and Geneva Motor Show have a thriving history. It was where the outgo­ing Mazda2 generation was launched before winning 2008 World Car of the Year. Build­ing upon that was no easy task, so Mazda set out to erase all notions associated with this class, throwing out the rulebook for the B segment with its latest supermini. Simply put, they gave the all-new Mazda2 more of eve­rything – except weight. And it does actually feel like a bigger car from a higher segment in terms of comfort, ergonomics and technol­ogy like a head-up display (a class first), MZD Connect smartphone connectivity, and active safety systems such as Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA). Under the bonnet, the all-new Mazda2 debuts a brand-new small displacement clean diesel – the SKYACTIV-D 1.5 – that delivers hybrid-like fuel economy. It is available alongside a range of rightsized SKYACTIV-G petrol enginesand indeed the full SKYACTIV line-up of in­novative, lightweight transmissions, chassis and body. The all-new Mazda2 also features a KODO design that brilliantly combines form and function in a lighter yet stiffer package, enhancing safety as well as the subcompact’s already superb handling.


Finalist for 2014 World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year, winner of Car of the Year in numerous countries, and a fixture of “best car” lists around the world, the Mazda3 has seen a lot of time on the podium since its launch less than 18 months ago. Sales of Mazda’s all-time bestseller re­main strong too. The Mazda3 delivers an unmatched combination of performance, fuel efficiency and functionality for its class in a package that’s as safe and practical as it is stunning. Its slick KODO looks, magnificently adapted to a compact’s agility, grab hold of the senses, arousing anticipation.

And its innovative SKYACTIV Technology exceeds expectations at every turn. This was the car that debuted Mazda’s new interior concept featuring ergonomic comfort that simply must be experienced. It was also the first Mazda with the MZD Connect, bringing people online safely and conveniently when on the go, and the company’s new head-up display – all in an afford­able C-segment model. Scarcely showing any age, it’s hard to believe that the Mazda3 is soon going to be the oldest new-generation Mazda available.
