Introducing i-ACTIVSENSE

i-ACTIVSENSE advanced safety technologies take confidence to the highest level. These intelligent systems are designed to help you recognise potential hazards, avoid collisions and to minimise the severity of accidents when they’re unavoidable.

Smart City Brake Support (SCBS)

Mazda’s Smart City Brake Support, or SCBS helps to prevent or soften the impact of low speed rear end collisions.

Smart City Brake Support [Reverse] (SCBS R)

Mazda’s Smart City Brake Support [Reverse], helps to prevent low speed collisions when you’re reversing.

Driver Attention Alert (DAA)

Mazda’s Driver Attention Alert can help improve the safety of longer distance journeys by monitoring your attentiveness.

Adaptive LED Headlamps (ALH)

Mazda’s Adaptive LED Headlamps (or ALH) improve visibility at night, and prevent other drivers from being blinded by your headlamps.

Lane-keep Assist System (LAS)

Mazda’s Lane-keep Assist System (or LAS) improves safety by helping you to stay within your lane. The system works in conjunction with Lane Departure Warning.

Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS)

Swivels headlamps up to 15 degrees in the direction you’re steering, revealing more of the corner.

Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM)

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

Forward Obstruction Warning (FOW) – camera based system

Mazda CX-9 only. A camera mounted at the top of the windscreen monitors the distance to the vehicle in front and if a collision is possible, the driver is prompted to take evasive action via an audible warning and a visual alert.

Forward Obstruction Warning (FOW) and Smart Brake Support (SBS)

By monitoring the distance to the vehicle in front and its speed, FOW senses if a collision is possible. It prompts you to take evasive action via a warning sound and visual alert. Also incorporates Smart Brake Support (SBS). If the system senses a high risk of impact, it applies initial pressure to the brakes to give you faster response should you brake. If you take evasive action the system de-activates. If no evasive action is taken, the brakes are applied automatically.

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.

Lane Departure Warning (LDW)

A windscreen-mounted camera monitors road lane markings and provides an audible alert if you’re about to stray from your lane. Warning comes from speaker on the same side as the lane the system determines your vehicle may be deviating toward.

Radar Cruise Control

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.

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. LED icon on both mirrors is accompanied by warning beeper.
