At Mazda, we’re committed to designing vehicles that can endure even the harshest of Canadian road conditions.
That’s why we test our vehicles in Montreal, and study how extreme road and weather conditions affect vehicle wear over time.
From these tests, we know exactly where to introduce panels of zinc-coated steel. This specialized steel prevents corrosion in the event that road elements flick up and chip the paint, exposing metal to moisture.
Watch as we simulate the destructive combination of salt and gravel used in Montreal to combat icy roads in freezing cold temperatures.
That’s why we test our vehicles in Halifax. With salt water blowing off the ocean, and more hydrogen in the air than normal, the climate in Halifax is particularly hard on metal. But relative to traditional car bodies, our SKYACTIV-Body minimizes the number of welds where liquids and contaminants can seep in. This dramatically reduces the potential for corrosion. Watch as we recreate the...

That’s why we test in Lac Saint-Jean, Quebec, where temperatures below -20°C are not uncommon. Our commitment to quality and passion for precision ensures that our SKYACTIV engine maximizes water and oil pump efficiency while reducing friction. That means you can feel confident about cold starts. See how our SKYACTIV engine and SKYACTIV-Body respond to freezing cold temperatures meant to...
