Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE is a range of safety features designed to keep you safe using the latest technology, such as cameras and milliwave radars. Active safety features work to help you notice potential hazards while driving and prevent accidents while the pre-crash safety will reduce the risk of a collision or reduce the severity of one if it occurs. Overall, the i-ACTIVSENSE system relies on several types of advanced technology, including milliwave radar at 76 GHz, a camera for visible wavelengths, a near-infrared laser, and quasi-milliwave radar at 24 GHz.

2016 Mazda CX-3 Pre-Collision Safety

The pre-collision or pre-crash safety technology in the i-ACTIVSENSE system is designed to reduce the risk of a collision and the impact of one if it cannot be avoided. Acceleration Control for Automatic Transmission works to avoid your vehicle suddenly taking off when you accidentally press down on the accelerator pedal. The Smart City Brake System (SCBS) and Smart Brake Support (SBS) work to avoid frontal collisions or reduce the severity and damage that occurs because of one. SCBS relies on the near-infrared laser sensor mentioned above and will detect vehicle up to a distance of 6 meters in front. It then helps you brake if the risk of impact is high.

2016 Mazda CX-3 Active Safety

The list of active safety technology that makes up i-ACTIVSENSE is more extensive, including six features. The Adaptive Front Lighting System automatically adjusts your lighting to follow the direction that you are driving. When you turn a corner, the headlights will move 15 degrees or less towards your turn, improving visibility and letting you notice potential hazards. The 2016 Mazda CX-3 can also include High-Beam Control which will automatically adjust your headlights between low and high beams so you can stay comfortable and safe while driving. Mazda Radar Cruise Control automatically controls the speed of your SUV so you maintain the proper distance between you and the vehicle in front of you, regardless of speed changes.

The Blind Spot Monitoring System in the 2016 Mazda CX-3 relies on radar sensors to track objects in your right and left blind spots. If a vehicle is present, you will see a warning light appear in the side mirror on the appropriate side of your SUV. Rear Vehicle Monitoring lets you know if a vehicle is approaching when driving on the highway, notifying you no matter which side they are coming from. Forward Obstruction Warning will also notify you via an alarm if there is a collision risk due to a hazard in front of the vehicle. The Lane Departure Warning System tracks the lane markings along the road and gives you a warning if you are about to leave your designated lane without signaling.
