i-Stop idling stop system
Mazda's i-stop idling stop system automatically shuts the engine down when you come to a complete half after braking, saving the fuel wasted when stopping in a traffic light junction to improve fuel economy. Release the brake pedal and fuel is injected directly into the cylinder ready for an almost instantaneous restart that takes just 0.35 seconds. What's more, because i-stop uses combustion energy rather than the starter motor, restarts are both quicker and smoother.
