i-ACTIVSENSE® Safety Suite
Active safety features are those that work to prevent a collision. The features of the i-Activsense® system use a series of radar and cameras to assist you behind the wheel. Think of i-Activsense® as your virtual co-pilot that’s constantly monitoring your surroundings.
Let’s take a closer look at some of these safety features:
- Smart Brake Support
Thanks to this feature, the Mazda3 was a recipient of the 2019 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK. This safety feature constantly monitors the front of your vehicle for any obstacles—like other vehicles, pedestrians, and more. If an object is detected, you’ll receive an alert. If needed, the Smart Brake Support system can step in and apply brake pressure.
- Driver Attention Alert
Your driving patterns will constantly be monitored for steering and throttle. If moving back and forth in your lane or infrequent throttling occurs, the Driver Attention Alert system will provide an alert on your Multi-Information Display screen. This helps to alert drivers if their attention seems to be wandering or for drivers who may be fatigued.
- Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go
Somewhat similar to the Smart Brake Support system, the Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go will keep an eye on the vehicle in front of you. From there, it’ll maintain a predetermined speed and distance. It can also intervene if the vehicle you’re behind slows down or stops suddenly by applying gentle brake pressure.
Performance Safety Features
In addition to providing a second pair of eyes while driving, the Mazda3 can also help keep you safe when driving in all types of weather. The i-Activ AWD® system constantly monitors your vehicle. If a loss of traction should occur, it can automatically redistribute power to the wheel(s) that need it most.
This intelligent system will even actively monitor the exterior temperature, windshield wiper usage, and more. It does so to not only react to any traction issues, but also prevent loss of traction to begin with.
With the available i-Activ AWD® system on your side, you can feel extra confident when driving your Mazda3 in rainy, snowy, or icy conditions.
