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.
