An advanced sense of safety

As a next-generation vehicle, Mazda3 integrates the very latest in safety. The availability of advanced i-ACTIVSENSE technology takes 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. i-ACTIVSENSE is optional across the range and comes standard on SP25 Astina and XD Astina.

Safety through intuition

Innovative technology makes Mazda3 safer

Blind Spot Monitoring

Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM). By scanning external mirrors’ blind spots, this innovation warns of unseen vehicles to help you avoid making hazardous lane changes.

Enhanced safety features are optional across the Mazda3 range and standard on SP25 Astina. Add the Safety Pack to enjoy the following added safety and advanced i-ACTIVSENSE technologies:

  • Rear-view mirror with auto dimming function (standard on SP25 GT)
  • Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM)
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)
  • Smart City Brake Support (SCBS)
High Beam Control

High Beam Control (HBC). Enjoy the enhanced safety of high beam illumination, without having to manually switch to low-beam.

Smart City Brake Support

Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) helps prevent low-speed impacts by monitoring the vehicle in front to assess the possibility of a collision.



New-generation design and materials achieve amazing lightness and rigidity. The underbody’s straight-frame construction runs uninterrupted through the framework to boost stiffness and save weight. Key joints are strengthened by advanced techniques that require no heavy reinforcement.

The employment of high and ultra-high tensile steel cuts weight, bolsters rigidity and aids safety. We’ve worked tirelessly to save every gram. Despite being light, Mazda3 disperses crash energy in multiple directions to achieve world-class collision performance.
