  1. Mild Hybrid Technology

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    The 2 litre petrol Mazda 3 supplied to the UK has a 'mild hybrid' drive system. I can't find details of the technology used. In particular, how is the output from the electric motor coupled into the transmission and how is the hybrid system controlled?

  8. Damage because of SCBS fail

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Mine's a 2015 Mazda 3 S grand touring with the Technology package. This includes the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS). My car recently nudged into the garage door. Very minimal damages, hardly noticeable. But yes, the paint chipped off here and there. Bottom line: the SCBS failed to work. After...
  9. Lowering an M3 sGT with Technology Package

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Looking through the owner's manual and supposedly lowering a vehicle that has SCBS and radar cruise can interfere with the way those systems work. Has anyone lowered an sGT with Tech and had any issues? None of my techs at the dealership I work at know what to expect, as none of our customers...

  11. Technology package?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I just bought my first Mazda - you guessed it, a 2014 3 S GT Hatchback. When I started shopping I was looking at the CX-5's for more cargo room but the 3 just kept calling to me and a test drive with the 2.5 engine sealed the deal - let the drummer bring the kit to the gig! I had to settle for...

  15. Is the technology package really worth it?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I plan on buying the hatch GT but so far I'll probably go moonroof and nothing else. The nav is nice but I can always purchase my own. Plus I think I'll be able to turn my own key. Don't need SAT, I'll be bumping my own music. Is there anything else in the tech package that I might not know of...
