Mazda’s Innovative Safety Features

These days, a thrilling driving experience and ultimate safety go hand-in-hand, and Mazda is a prime example of an automaker making sure that happens. For example, Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE® encompasses the advanced safety technologies available in the latest vehicles, and the features deploy radars and cameras. These technologies help you drive safely by making you aware of what’s going on around you and even intervening to help avoid or reduce the impact of collisions. Meanwhile, Mazda strongly supports Intelligent Transport Systems, which aim to reduce accidents and traffic through the receipt and transmission of information via telecommunications. Read on to learn about Mazda’s innovative safety features to understand how the automaker is working to keep you and your passengers as safe as possible on the road.

Hazard Perception and Avoidance Technology

Mazda models have the capacity to detect potential hazards and keep you more aware on the road. Such technologies with this purpose include:

  • Rear Vehicle Monitoring
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • Emergency Signal System
  • Forward Obstruction Warning

The Lane Departure Warning system is especially noteworthy, as it alerts you if you’re beginning to drift from your lane so that you can take corrective action. Additionally, there are certain technologies that work to help you avoid hazards as you drive and prevent accidents, such as:

  • Brake Assist and Electronic Brake Force Distribution, which supports stable braking and stopping
  • 4-Wheel Anti-Lock Braking System, which delivers brake force evenly between your Mazda model’s four wheels for improved control
  • Dynamic Stability Control and Traction Control systems, which activate if your vehicle begins to skid sideways

You’ll definitely remain aware and secure along Florida’s highways with these systems alerting you of potential hazards and taking effect when you don’t respond in adequate time.

Pre-Crash Safety Technology

You can reduce the risk of collisions even further with the assistance of various technologies geared toward collision avoidance and impact reduction. These features monitor your surroundings and the behaviors of vehicles around you as well as your own in order to keep you safe. Two features, for instance, work in your favor:

  • Smart City Brake Support and Smart Brake Support: These features are meant to lessen the severity of rear-end collisions by applying the brakes and reducing engine output when a collision is imminent.
  • Acceleration Control for AT: This feature goes into action if you accidentally hit the gas pedal instead of the brake to prevent sudden acceleration.

Bumper-to-bumper traffic doesn’t have to mean a greater risk of a collision when you’re behind the wheel of a Mazda vehicle, thanks to these innovative features.

Passive Safety Technology

While the proactive advanced technologies make you more aware of what’s around you and act to intervene to prevent of mitigate a collision, these passive safety features are aimed at protecting passengers when a collision does occur. They include:

  • SRS Airbag System

  • Front Seat that reduces shock to the neck
  • Rear Seat that prevents luggage from flying into the cabin
  • Structure that prevents rear seat passengers from sliding forward during a crash
  • Impact-absorbing soft interior
  • Anti-Intrusion Brake Pedal
  • Impact-Absorbing Steering System
  • Isofix-Compliant Child Seat Anchor

On top of all this, the bonnet and bumpers absorb the force of an impact in the case that you strike a pedestrian, reducing the severity of their injuries.
