Reducing vehicle weight improves fuel economy and enables the maximum performance to be extracted from the engine and transmission. With our new platform, Mazda adopted a comprehensive weight reduction approach, which included optimizing the structure, developing new construction methods, and substituting materials. The result is a total reduction in weight, achieved mostly in the body and chassis, of around 100 kilograms over previous models.
