Drive with confidence

The high-strength SKYACTIV-BODY is engineered to minimise harm in the event of a collision. Front airbags for both passengers and side-airbags with head-protecting cells safeguard against impact even with the top down.

ABS brakes feature Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), which matches braking to vehicle load, while Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) boosts stopping power when emergency braking is sensed. An Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) activates the hazard lights to warn following drivers of sudden deceleration. Limited-Slip Differential (LSD) applies equal torque to both wheels, minimising wheel-spin (manual only).

Armed with the latest in safety aids, you can enjoy every thrilling drive with confidence.

Mazda MX-5 Safety

The high-strength SKYACTIV-BODY is engineered to minimise harm in the event of a collision.

Mazda MX-5 Safety

Hill Launch Assist (HLA)
With Hill Launch Assist (HLA) you’ve got time to apply power and take off smoothly. The system momentarily keeps the brakes on when you take your foot from the brake on a slope.

Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) 
A smart Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) lets you know if tyre pressure is low. A warning light illuminates on the dashboard and a beep is heard if pressure is too low in one or more tyres.

Handle the unexpected

Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) keeps Mazda MX-5 more stable when cornering or swerving around an object. When required, the system reduces your engine power and regulates braking pressure on individual wheels.

Traction Control System (TCS) stops your wheels from spinning on slippery or challenging surfaces such as loose stones, by regulating the torque of the SKYACTIV-G engine.
