Feel safer than ever before

Mazda MX-5 protects you with an impressive suite of advanced i-ACTIVSENSE safety technologies. These intelligent active safety systems are designed to help you recognise potential hazards, avoid collisions and minimise the severity of accidents when they can't be avoided. Using radar, infrared laser, cameras, and driver warnings, i-ACTIVSENSE keeps a careful eye out for you. Features available vary by model.

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

At forward speeds of 4-30km/h (and reverse speeds of 2-8km/h), ASCBS 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 brakes automatically.

Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM)

By scanning external mirrors' blind spots, this innovation warns of any unseen vehicles to help you avoid making hazardous lane changes. An LED icon on the relevant mirror is accompanied by warning beeper. 


Rear Cross Traffic Alert (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 beeping alert.
