Mazda makes safety a priority in all of their vehicles, which is why they offer i-ACTIVSENSE technologies. An incredible range of technologies are included in the i-ACTIVSENSE category since it features many advanced safety technologies that rely on cameras, milliwave radars, and other similar pieces of technology for detection. Some safety technologies let you recognize potential hazards when driving around in your Mazda 3 while others are pre-crash safety technologies that minimize the risk of collision and work to reduce their severity if a collision is unavoidable.

2016 Mazda 3 Pre-Crash Safety with i-ACTIVSENSE

The i-ACTIVSENSE pre-crash technologies in the Mazda 3 include Acceleration Control for Automatic Transmission, SBS, and SCBS. They aim to reduce your risk of having an accident. The acceleration control system reduces the risk of a sudden take-off when you press down on your accelerator by mistake. SBS (Smart Brake Support) and SCBS (Smart City Brake Support) work together to prevent frontal collisions. If an accident does occur, they reduce the damage that takes place due to it. These systems rely on millimeter-wave radar and can detect objects up to 200 meters ahead. They will automatically apply the brakes if a collision becomes imminent and SBS is most effective at medium to high speeds (of 15 to 145 km/hr).

2016 Mazda 3 Active Safety with i-ACTIVSENSE

The other half of the i-ACTIVSENSE technologies available across the Mazda lineup include active safety technologies that help prevent the occurrence of an accident. AFS (Adaptive Front-lighting System) will point the low-beam headlights towards whatever direction you steer your 2016 Mazda 3. High-Beam Control System (HBC) will automatically switch the headlights between your low and high beams so you can be safe and comfortable while on the road. Mazda Radar Cruise Control, MRCC, will automatically control your speed so that your Mazda 3 remains the preset distance away from the vehicle in front of you, adjusting to changing traffic speeds.

Forward Object Warning, FOW, reduces the effects of driving hazards by turning on an alarm if it detects a collision risk. The Lane Departure Warning System, LDWS, detects the lane markings along the road surface. It then uses this information to give you a warning if you are about to drift out of your lane unintentionally. The final component of i-ACTIVSENSE technology in the 2016 Mazda 3 and other models is Rear Vehicle Monitoring, RVM, which alerts you to vehicles heading towards from the rear on either side during highway driving.

i-ACTIVSENSE Availability in the Mazda 3

While most of i-ACTIVSENSE technologies are available on the Mazda 3, not all of them are. Configuring your 2016 Mazda 3 with the Technology Package will give you Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning System, and Smart City Brake Support. This covers a range of both pre-crash and active safety technologies for a well-rounded and safe experience while driving. These features complement other standard safety such as the front safety-belt pretensioners featuring force limiters, front headrests that reduce whiplash, 3-point seatbelts throughout, dual side air curtains, dual front side airbags, and dual front airbags.
