Aside from agile responses helping you stay clear of trouble, Mazda3 comes with a suite of safety features that are primed for anything. Its light weight delivers sporty performance, yet its body is immensely strong. Multiple load paths divert crash energy from the occupant cell, helping achieve world-class collision safety.
Six SRS airbags are integrated, including front, side (front) and curtain (front and rear). The latest in safety is there for you. Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with integrated Traction Control System (TCS) is standard for the 2.0 litre models. The stopping power of four big disc brakes incorporates ABS and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), which optimises braking force according to the vehicle’s load. Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) recognises urgent braking, maximising braking force right when you need it.
Feel confident after braking on an incline, with Hill Launch Assist (HLA) – Available from 2.0L models, giving you a smooth start on re-acceleration. The Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) bolsters safety by flashing the hazard lights to warn drivers behind. Mazda3 also gives you high security. Remote control locking and an engine immobiliser are standard.
Newly introduced to Mazda3 Astina Plus only
Smart City Brake Support (SCBS).
Helps prevent, or lessen, low-speed impacts. Now with pedestrian detection, SCBS monitors the vehicle in front to assess the possibility of a collision at forward speeds of 4-80km/h. If the system detects a high risk of impact, it issues visual and audible warnings and primes the brakes for faster response should the driver brake. If the driver does not brake, the brakes are applied automatically. SCBS also works in reverse at speeds of 2-8km/h. Standard on Astina Plus only.
Blind Spot Monitoring (BMS).
By scanning external mirrors’ blind spots, radars detect any unseen vehicles to help you avoid making hazardous lane changes. An LED icon on the relevant mirror is accompanied by beeping alerts. Available on Astina models.
Lane Departure Warning (LDW)/Lane Keep Assist System (LAS).
Using a windscreen-mounted camera to monitor road lane markings, LDW sounds an audible warning if you’re about to stray from your lane. LAS will act if it determines the vehicle is going to leave its lane, by applying a degree of corrective steering. Driver Attention Alert (DAA) is also integrated. Standard on Astina Plus only.
