What are the i-Activsense® Safety Features?

  • Adaptive Front-Lighting System (AFS): Navigating through the Tampa roads in the dark can become a hassle, but thanks to the AFS, drivers can use this feature to turn the headlights, so the light bends around the corner, illuminating what’s coming around the curve.
  • High-Beam Control (HBC): For maximum night-driving visibility, utilize your vehicle’s high beams. The HBC system uses an advanced camera system that can recognize when an oncoming or preceding vehicle is in your general vicinity, automatically switching between high and low beams. This means you can enjoy the excellent visibility without blinding drivers around you.
  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC): MRCC is an advanced cruise control system using sonar to detect the distance between the front of your vehicle and the back of the vehicle that is in front of you. It then automatically accelerates and brakes to maintain a safe distance. This system also includes the Distance Recognition Support System (DRSS), which lets drivers know the exact distance between their vehicle and the one in front of them.
  • Rear Vehicle Monitoring System (RVM): The RVM system also utilizes radar to read the distance of a vehicle approaching from behind in the lanes beside your vehicle to make the driver aware of other vehicles close by. Drivers can also get an audible and visual warning if the system detects an oncoming vehicle in a neighboring lane when your turn signal is on.
  • Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS): Similar to the Mazda lane keep assist features, it uses an advanced camera system that reads lane markers to recognize when your vehicle is drifting out of its lane and sends you a warning to help avoid a dangerous situation. Please note that if the vehicle’s turn signal is on when the lane departure occurs, the warning will not engage.
  • Forward Obstruction Warning (FOW): This technology lets you recognize when there is a vehicle or obstruction directly in front of the vehicle. If it senses that the vehicle of you is getting too close, it will automatically send a visual and audible alert that warns the driver to immediately brake.
  • Smart City Brake Support: This technology can automatically apply the brakes when you’re driving in the city at low speeds to avoid or mitigate the impact of a head-on collision.
  • Acceleration Control for AT: For the select Mazda vehicles that are equipped with an automatic transmission, Acceleration Control for AT automatically sends a warning to the driver if the accelerator is pressed too hard and there is an obstruction in front of the vehicle.
