Recommendations for Shifting
Upshifting
For normal acceleration and cruising, Mazda recommends these shift points:
(U.S.A. and Canada)
Gear
Vehicle speed*1
M1 to M2
24 km/h (15 mph)
M2 to M3
40 km/h (25 mph)
M3 to M4
65 km/h (40 mph)
M4 to M5
73 km/h (45 mph)
M5 to M6
81 km/h (50 mph)
*1
Always observe local speed limit regulations.
Downshifting
When you must slow down in heavy traffic or on a steep upgrade, downshift before
the engine starts to overwork. This gives better acceleration when you need more
speed.
On a steep downgrade, downshifting helps maintain safe speed and prolongs brake
life.

M Hybrid
M Hybrid uses the Integrated Starter-Generator (ISG) with excellent power
generation efficiency to generate electricity from the kinetic energy generated when
the vehicle decelerates. The system uses the electrical power stored in the M Hybrid
battery, which is a large-capacity battery to improve driveability and fuel economy by
reducing engine load and providing motor assist. In addition, the ISG provides quiet

If the light switch is left on, the lights will automatically switch off approximately
30 seconds after switching the ignition off.
The time setting can be changed.
Refer to the Settings section in the Mazda Connect Owner's Manual.
To prevent discharging the battery, do not leave the lights on while the engine is

Switches and Controls
Auto-light control*
When the headlight switch is in a position other than
and the ignition is
switched ON, the light sensor senses the surrounding lightness or darkness and
automatically turns the headlights and other exterior lights on or off.
CAUTION
¾ Do not shade the light sensor by adhering a sticker or a label on the windshield.
Otherwise the light sensor will not operate correctly.
¾ The light sensor also works as a rain sensor for the auto-wiper control. Keep hands
and scrapers clear of the windshield when the wiper lever is in the AUTO position
and the ignition is switched ON as fingers could be pinched or the wipers and
wiper blades could be damaged when the wipers activate automatically. If you are
going to clean the windshield, be sure the wipers are turned off completely when
it is particularly tempting to leave the engine running. This is particularly important
when clearing ice and snow.
NOTE
The headlights and other exterior lights may not turn off immediately even if the
surrounding area becomes well-lit because the light sensor determines that it is
night time if the surrounding area is continuously dark for several minutes such as
inside long tunnels, traffic jams inside tunnels, or in indoor parking lots.
If the headlight switch and the windshield wiper switch are in AUTO, and the
wipers are operated at low or high speed by the auto wiper control for several
seconds, bad weather conditions are determined and the headlights may be
turned on.
The sensitivity of the auto-light control may be changed.
Refer to the Settings section in the Mazda Connect Owner's Manual.
