Mazda’s available advanced technology works to enhance any driving experience

1. Active Driving Displays

Equal parts safety feature and convenience, when you’re looking down the road Mazda’s Active Driving Display places a wealth of useful information directly in your line of sight. This helps you keep your attention focused on traffic, while you simultaneously monitor your speed, turn-by-turn navigational instructions and notifications from your Mazda’s advanced driver’s assistance features.

2. Mazda Mobile Start¹

The ability to remotely start your car in extreme weather conditions can be one of the greatest gifts. Mazda Mobile Start takes this convenience one step farther; by also enabling you to precisely adjust the temperature of your climate control system. Because the smartphone application also knows exactly where your car is parked, searching for your Mazda in a crowded lot is eliminated, too.

3. Rain-Sensing Wipers

The more help your car provides, the safer you’ll be—particularly in inclement weather. Mazda’s rain-sensing wipers automatically activate when rain begins to accumulate on your windshield. In addition to improving visibility, this helps keep your eyes on traffic in inclement weather conditions, rather than looking down to activate your wipers.

4. Hill Launch Assist

We’ve all been there; stuck on a steep hill in traffic, dreading rolling backward before we can get the car moving forward. This problem is alleviated with Mazda’s Hill Launch Assist. When you release the brake pedal, Hill Launch Assist actually holds the car in place momentarily—giving you time to press the accelerator pull away stress-free.

5. Mazda Radar Cruise Control²

With Mazda Radar Cruise Control, you can set the maximum speed at which you wish to travel and MRCC automatically matches the ebbs and flows of traffic—while also maintaining a safe following distance. While brilliant for long distance travel, this also significantly reduces the stresses of driving in stop and go commuter traffic.

6. Smart City Brake Support³

Low-speed rear-end collisions are one of the most common type of accident. Typically, the driver of the colliding car is almost always found to be at fault. With Mazda’s Smart City Brake Support, the car can stop itself at speeds below 20 miles per hour if the system senses a collision is imminent and the driver fails to take action.

7. High Beam Control

While you see better at night when your high beams are activated, they can temporarily blind other drivers. Using its cameras at the top of the wind screen, Mazda’s High Beam Control automatically switches between high and low beams when the cameras detect another car—then reverts to your high beams when the car is gone. This frees you from switching your headlights back and forth any time another car approaches from the front.

8. Adaptive Front-Lighting System

Mazda’s Adaptive Front-Lighting System uses the speed of your car and the angle of your steering wheel to determine where your headlights are needed most. As you make a turn, or enter a curve, your headlights swivel to illuminate your indicated path of travel, giving you better visibility and more time to respond to potential obstructions.
