Lane-Keep Assist: Lane-Keep Assist works with the Lane Departure Warning system to perform steering corrections when it detects the vehicle leaving its lane.

LED Headlights with Adaptive Front-Lighting System: This system will rotate the headlights up to 15 degrees in the direction the vehicle is turning to improve visibility.

Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring: This system helps detect objects in your blind spots and alerts the driver via a chime and warning light in the vehicle’s side mirror. The system also provides warnings if a fast-moving vehicle is approaching that may enter the blind spot.

Smart City Brake Support: Smart City Brake Support is active when the Mazda is traveling between about 2 and 18 miles per hour. If the system detects an object ahead, the system prepares the brakes by adjusting the brake pads close to the disc. If no action is taken by the driver, the brakes are automatically applied.

Smart Brake Support: Similar to the Smart City Brake system, this system will sound an alert when the vehicle is traveling over 10 mph and an object is detected ahead. If no action is taken, the system will automatically apply the brakes.

Distance Recognition Support System: This system is active when the vehicle is traveling over 19 mph. The system measures the distance between the Mazda and the vehicle ahead and helps the driver maintain a comfortable following distance. A warning light will alert the driver the vehicle ahead is too close.
