Standard across the range, Smart City Brake Support is designed to help avoid or minimise the effects of low-speed collisions, by using a highly accurate radar laser sensor system to monitor traffic. If the system detects a risk of collision, it pre-fills the brakes so they respond instantly if you apply them. If you don’t apply your brakes, this car safety feature makes an emergency stop when necessary. It operates at speeds of 3mph to 19mph.
A fantastic application of this new safety feature is to the rear of the car, available on the optional Safety Pack on Sport Nav models, this is a first for the motor industry, and first to be featured on the new Mazda6. The feature uses radar sensors to help reduce the impact of or prevent a collision when reversing towards an obstacle at up to approximately 5mph.
