i-ACTIVSENSE

Keeping you safe, so you can enjoy the drive

 

Our advanced i-ACTIVSENSE safety technologies are designed so that you can enjoy total confidence in the drive ahead. By helping the driver to recognize potential hazards, avoid collisions where possible and reduce the severity of accidents when they are unavoidable, it’s yet another way in which Mazda connects the driver with the car through our Jinba Ittai philosophy.

SMART CITY BRAKE SUPPORT SCBS

Smart City Brake Support

SCBS takes the stress out of city driving. Built-in sensors continually monitor distance and closing speed to obstacles in front of you, and can prime the brakes for an emergency stop if needed. The SCBS features extended camera detection range, improved operation speed range and maximum speed at which collision avoidance is supported. The Active Driving Display, as well as your Navigation** display will notify you if the speed limit has been exceeded with a visual and audible warning.

ADAPTIVE LED HEADLIGHTS WITH HIGHWAY MODE

Adaptive LED Headlights

Mazda’s Adaptive LED Headlights (ALH) has been developed in the pursuit of ideal visibility during night time driving. ALH ensures enjoyable, safe and stress-free driving for you and the rest on the road thanks to its three unique functions: Glare-free High Beam detects the position of the vehicle ahead or an on-coming vehicle and turns off sections of the LEDs. Wide-range Low Beam ensures that the LED lights illuminate both sides of the road over a wider spread to help light up junctions and turns. Highway Mode increases visibility at a distance by raising the headlamp optical axis when driving at motorway speeds.

DRIVER ATTENTION ALERT DAA

Driver Attention Alert

Driver Attention Alert (DAA) is designed to detect any changes in your driving caused by fatigue. It constantly monitors your driving behaviour and if you’re getting tired a warning icon appears, directly in your line of sight, suggesting you take a break periodically through the use of both visual and audible alerts. Designed to reduce accidents caused by inattentiveness due to tiredness, the system begins to “learn” your driving stylemonitoring the steering wheel angle and vehicle speed, combining this with information from the forward sensing camera.

LANE KEEP ASSIST AND LANE DEPARTURE WARNING SYSTEM

Lane Keep Assist

Lane-Keep Assist (LAS) uses the forward sensing camera to monitor the road markings, supporting the driver in steering the car by providing steering torque assistance and vibrating the steering wheel or sounding an alert.


Mazda's Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) detects line marking on the road surface and warns you of unintentional sways. When the lane change is accompanied by turn signal operation or acceleration, the system recognizes the manoeuvre as intentional and does not sound an alarm.

BLIND SPOT MONITORING SYSTEM WITH REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT

Blind Spot Monitoring System

Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (ABSM w/RCTA) uses a millimetre-wave radar sensor to monitor the blind spot areas to the sides and rear of your Mazda, keeping you alert of approaching vehicles when changing lanes. If you switch on a turn signal whilst the system detects vehicles approaching from behind, it warns you with a flashing indicator in the respective door mirror and sounds an alert. The system also uses the same sensor for its RTCA function, which monitors your Mazda's surroundings when reversing, alerting you when it detects vehicles approaching from the sides.

HILL LAUNCH ASSIST HLA

Hill Launch Assist

Mazda's Hill Launch Assist (HLA) operates automatically when stopped on a slope to help you take off smoothly and safely without making any special effort. When taking off on a slope, this function maintains an automatic break to help prevent the car from rolling backwards when you move your foot from the brake to the accelerator. On gentle slopes the automatic brake releases immediately when the accelerator is pressed to guarantee a smooth start.

MAZDA RADAR CRUISE CONTROL MRCC

Mazda Radar Cruise Control

Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC) allows you to set the car’s speed and maintain it without using the accelerator pedal. The system uses a millimetre wave radar sensor in the vehicle’s front grille to monitor and to judge the relative speed and distance to the car ahead of you and adjusts your speed to a safe following distance. Thus MRCC takes the burden away from long drives and helps you focus on the fun.
