General Front

The overall result is a outstanding response and a linear behavior in any situation of braking. Body of high basic objective rigidezEl of development of the bodywork of the new Mazda3 was the general improvement of the stiffness of the body and its balance. He is of course, wanted to ensure that you absorb firmly cushions reaction force. With this in mind, special attention to the reinforcement of the area near mounting of front and rear suspension elements, as well as the corner connections, supporting large voltages. To reinforce the joints of the front and rear suspension turrets a structural adhesive was used and welding was employed by points that have allowed to reinforce joints in the area of the doors. As a result, the bodywork has substantially improved stiffness and hysteresis (the degree of deformation due to the repeated application of loads of torque). The aerodynamics of a Lidercon order to optimally control the circulation of air is It adopted a new methodology, called managing the flow of air. The conventional designs of cars generate strong resistance from air that adversely affects aerodynamics.

However, the new Mazda3 doesn’t penetrate an excess of air, thereby reducing the total resistance. Concrete examples are the openings of the upper and lower racks. Impact (wind pressure) pressure are concentrated in them, in a way that facilitates the admission of air and its circulation to cool the engine. Also overhangs fronts of the upper structure of the bodywork was redesigned and added round louvers in the front tires to better control the flow of air by the vehicle flanks. As a result, the drag coefficient of the European model of 5 and 4 doors is 0.30 and 0.28, respectively, which places them among the best in the segment. Obviously, these measures have helped to achieve first class levels in the noise reduction of wind, high speed stability and economy of consumption.
