Mazda3 1.6 CRTD Sportive

The design remains one of the outstanding features of the compact body of the range.Few cosmetic changes in the new Mazda3 and have gotten used to improve aerodynamics.Soundproofing work has enabled lower NVH 1.6 CRTD in several decibels and filtration of mechanical noise to the passenger compartment.Rear lights have LEDs on the top finish, the Sportive.

Compact largest market,

We tested, awaiting the Japanese company decided to include the 2 liters of 136 hp employing various models of Ford and PSA, the only version of the range with diesel engines, incorporated five-door body. This is the same 1.6 CRTD which animated the Mazda3 before the upgrade. According to our Technical Center in the tested version delivers slightly less torque than the previous. In return, reached that figure, 27.2 mkg, much earlier, 2,020 rpm (By 28.84 to 2440 rpm of the previous generation). This improves the responsiveness of the model and although its 109 hp prove somewhat scarce at times broadly, the 1.6 CRTD operates with excellence.There has not been any change in the engine, but now vibrates less, transmitting less noise into the cabin. The reason is to be found in the engine compartment, where company engineers have incorporated a new insulation, new media and a new alternator. To this we must add insulation work done on the roof of the body and the trunk lid. Without being the quietest of its rivals, the Mazda3 can claim to be in line with them and have passed a babbling something vitola vehicle. The reduction of noise and improvement in the ability to climb around, we must unite a change in the accelerator, now electronic. All combined causes on more than one occasion we get to the injection cut almost without realizing it, since the rise of turns is almost imperceptible in sonic terms.

In expressways and trunk roads, travels with aplomb, barely oscillates body and comfort on board is remarkable. In short, despite increased firmness of the suspensions, the balance between dynamism and comfort is remarkable. Without any doubt, improved insulation interior help enhance that feeling. But there's more.
