Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM)

By scanning external mirrors’ blind spots, radars detect any unseen vehicles to alert the driver of hazardous lane changes. An LED icon on the relevant mirror is accompanied by beeping alerts.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)

RCTA assists you when you’re reversing from a parking space, warning if a car is approaching from either side of your vehicle. The LED icon on both mirrors is accompanied by a beeping alert.

Advanced Smart City Brake Support – Forward (ASCBS-F)

At forward speeds of 4-30km/h, ASCBS-F monitors the vehicle in front to assess the likelihood of a collision. If the system detects a high risk of impact, it issues visual and audible warnings and primes the brakes for a faster response. If the driver doesn’t brake, ASCBS-F brakes automatically.

Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
Lane-keep Assist System (LAS)

Using a windscreen-mounted camera to monitor road lane markings, LDW sounds an audible warning if you’re about to stray from your lane. LAS will act if it determines the vehicle is going to leave its lane, by applying a degree of corrective steering. Limited models only.

High Beam Control (HBC)

Makes night driving easier by reducing driver effort. Senses oncoming cars' headlamps, or leading cars' tail-lamps, and automatically switches from high to low beam, then back when it's safe. Also selects low beam in lit areas or at low speed.

Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC)

Uses radar to monitor the car ahead, and automatically adjusts your speed to maintain a safe distance. Reduces driver effort by managing the accelerator and brake pedals. Both can still be used at any time, and the system can be switched on and off as needed. Limited models only.

Smart Brake Support (SBS)

Operating at 15-145km/h, SBS monitors the distance to and speed of the vehicle in front. If SBS senses a high risk of impact, it primes the brakes for faster response. If you take evasive action, SBS deactivates. If no evasive action is taken, the brakes are applied automatically.

G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus)

The newly developed GVC Plus offers unprecedented levels of confidence-inspiring controllability.
