Speedometer

The speedometer indicates the speed of the vehicle.

Tachometer

The tachometer shows engine speed in thousands of revolutions per minute (rpm).

CAUTION Do not run the engine with the tachometer needle in the RED ZONE.

This may cause severe engine damage.

Instrument Cluster and Display

NOTE When the tachometer needle enters the STRIPED ZONE, this indicates to the driver that the gears should be shifted before entering the RED ZONE.

Multi-information Display (Type C)

Instrument Cluster and Display

The multi-information display indicates the following information.

  • Odometer
  • Trip meter
  • Engine coolant temperature gauge
  • Fuel gauge
  • Outside temperature
  • Trip Computer
  • Cruise Control Display
  • Compass Display

Odometer, Trip Meter and Trip Meter Selector

The display mode can be changed from odometer to trip meter A to trip meter B and then back to odometer by pressing the selector while one of them is displayed.

The selected mode will be displayed.

Instrument Cluster and Display

Odometer

The odometer records the total distance the vehicle has been driven.

Trip meter

The trip meter can record the total distance of two trips. One is recorded in trip meter A, and the other is recorded in trip meter B.

For instance, trip meter A can record the distance from the point of origin, and trip meter B can record the distance from where the fuel tank is filled.

When trip meter A is selected, pressing the selector again within 1 second will change to trip meter B mode.

When trip meter A is selected, TRIP A will be displayed. When trip meter B is selected, TRIP B will be displayed.

The trip meter records the total distance the vehicle is driven until the meter is again reset. Return it to "0.0" by depressing and holding the selector for 1 second or more. Use this meter to measure trip distances and to compute fuel consumption.

NOTE

  • If TRIP A is reset using the trip meter when the function which synchronizes (resets) the fuel economy monitor and the trip meter (TRIP A) is on, the fuel economy data resets in conjunction with TRIP A.
  • Only the trip meters record tenths of kilometers (miles).
  • The trip record will be erased when:
    • The power supply is interrupted (blown fuse or the battery is disconnected).
    • The vehicle is driven over 9999.9 km (mile).

Engine Coolant Temperature Gauge

Displays the engine coolant temperature.

The white gauge indicates that the engine coolant temperature is low, and the red gauge indicates that the engine coolant temperature is high and overheating.

CAUTION If the engine coolant temperature gauge needle (white) flashes, there is a possibility of overheating. Drive slowly to reduce engine load until you can find a safe place to stop the vehicle and wait for the engine to cool down.

NOTE

  • If the engine coolant temperature is high or the engine is hot, the engine output may be limited.
  • The temperature unit (Centigrade/ Fahrenheit) of the engine coolant gauge display changes in conjunction with the temperature unit of the outside temperature display.
  • During normal driving, the engine coolant temperature stabilizes at 100 ºC (210 ºF) or less, and the gauge indicates a range lower than 100 ºC (210 ºF).

Fuel Gauge

The fuel gauge shows approximately how much fuel is remaining in the tank when the ignition is switched ON. We recommend keeping the tank over 1/4 full.

Instrument Cluster and Display

If the low fuel warning light illuminates or the fuel level is very low, refuel as soon as possible.

NOTE

  • After refueling, it may require some time for the indicator to stabilize. In addition, the indicator may deviate while driving on a slope or curve since the fuel moves in the tank.
  • The display indicating a quarter or less remaining fuel has more segments to show the remaining fuel level in greater detail.
  • The direction of the arrow ( ) indicates that the fuel-filler lid is on the left side of the vehicle.

Dashboard Illumination

When the lights are turned on with the ignition switched ON, the brightness of the dashboard illumination is dimmed.

NOTE

  • When the lights are turned on, the lights-on indicator light in the instrument cluster turns on.

The brightness of the instrument cluster and dashboard illuminations can be adjusted by rotating the knob.

  • The brightness decreases by rotating the knob to the left. A beep sound will be heard when the knob has been rotated to the maximum dim position.
  • The brightness increases by rotating the knob to the right.

Instrument Cluster and Display

Function for canceling illumination dimmer

The illumination dimmer can be canceled by rotating the dashboard illumination knob to the right until a beep sound is heard while the instrument cluster is dimmed with the ignition switched ON. If the instrument cluster's visibility is reduced due to glare from surrounding brightness, cancel the illumination dimmer.

NOTE

  • When the illumination dimmer is canceled, the instrument cluster cannot be dimmed even if the lights are turned on.
  • When the illumination dimmer is canceled, the screen in the center display switches to constant display of the daytime screen.

Outside Temperature Display

When the ignition is switched ON, the outside temperature is displayed.

NOTE

  • Under the following conditions, the outside temperature display may differ from the actual outside temperature depending on the surroundings and vehicle conditions:
    • Significantly cold or hot temperatures.
    • Sudden changes in outside temperature.
    • The vehicle is parked.
    • The vehicle is driven at low speeds.

Changing the Temperature Unit of the Outside Temperature Display

The outside temperature unit can be switched between Celsius and Fahrenheit.

Settings can be changed by operating the center display screen.

NOTE When the temperature unit indicated in the outside temperature display is changed, the temperature unit indicated in the engine coolant gauge display changes in conjunction with it.

Trip Computer

The following information can be selected by pressing the INFO switch with the ignition switched ON.

  • Distance-to-empty mode
  • Average fuel economy mode
  • Current fuel economy mode
  • Compass mode

If you have any problems with your trip computer, consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer.

Distance-to-empty mode

This mode displays the approximate distance you can travel on the remaining fuel based on the fuel economy.

The distance-to-empty will be calculated and displayed every second.

NOTE

  • Even though the distance-to-empty display may indicate a sufficient amount of remaining driving distance before refueling is required, refuel as soon as possible if the fuel level is very low or the low fuel warning light illuminates.
  • The display may not change unless you add more than approximately 9 L (2.3 US gal, 1.9 Imp gal) of fuel.
  • The distance-to-empty is the approximate remaining distance the vehicle can be driven until all the graduation marks in the fuel gauge (indicating the remaining fuel supply) disappear.
  • If there is no past fuel economy information such as after first purchasing your vehicle or the information is deleted when the battery cables are disconnected, the actual distance-to empty/range may differ from the amount indicated.

Average fuel economy mode

This mode displays the average fuel economy by calculating the total traveled distance and the total fuel consumption since the vehicle was purchased or the past data was reset. The average fuel economy is calculated and displayed every minute.

To reset the displayed past data, press the INFO switch for 1.5 seconds or longer.

After resetting the data, - - - L/100 km (- - - mpg) is displayed for one minute before the fuel economy is recalculated and displayed.

NOTE If TRIP A is reset using the trip meter when the function which synchronizes (resets) the fuel economy monitor and the trip meter (TRIP A) is on, the displayed past data is reset.

Current fuel economy mode

This mode displays the current fuel economy by calculating the amount of fuel consumption and the distance traveled.

Current fuel economy will be calculated and displayed every 2 seconds.

When you've slowed to about 5 km/h (3 mph), - - - L/100 km (- - - mpg) will be displayed.

Compass mode

The direction the vehicle is moving is displayed in one of eight directions while the vehicle is being driven.
