i-ACTIVSENSE advanced safety

Intuitive tech

Using exceptionally intelligent technology, i-ACTIVSENSE makes Mazda CX-3 smarter and safer. It scans for potential hazards with detection devices such as milliwave radars and cameras to help you avoid collisions.

  1. Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring icon

    Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring (ABSM)

    Radars scan external mirrors’ blind spots, detecting unseen vehicles up to 45 metres back to help prevent hazardous lane changes. LED icon on the relevant mirror indicates a detected vehicle. If you activate turn indicators on the side of the potential hazard, the icon flashes and a warning sounds. Optional across range, standard on Akari model.

  2. Lane Departure Warning icon

    Lane Departure Warning (LDW)

    LDW operates at approximately 70km/h and above. Using a windscreen-mounted camera to monitor road lane markings, the system issues an audible warning if it senses you’re about to stray from your lane. Available on Akari model only.

  3. Rear Cross Traffic Alert icon

    Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)

    RCTA warns if a car is approaching from either side of your vehicle as you reverse from a parking space. An LED icon on exterior mirrors is supported by a beeping alert. Optional across range, standard on Akari model.

  4. High Beam Control icon

    High Beam Control (HBC)

    With HBC, a camera detects oncoming cars’ headlamps, or the tail lamps of cars in front. The system automatically switches to low-beam, then back when it’s safe. Low beam is also selected in lit areas or at low speed. Available on Akari model only.

  5. Smart City Brake Support icon

    Smart City Brake Support (SCBS)

    SCBS helps prevent, or moderate, low-speed impacts. At forward speeds of 4-30km/h, the system monitors the vehicle ahead assessing the chances of a collision. If a high risk is detected, visual and audible warnings are given, while the brakes are primed for faster response should the you brake. If you don’t, the brakes are applied automatically. Optional across range, standard on Akari model.

Mazda CX‑3 instills a superior sense of security with a 5‑Star ANCAP Safety Rating and i‑ACTIVSENSE technology, so you move with greater confidence and arrive safely every time.

Expand your freedom


Front or All-Wheel Drive

Head out

SKYACTIV engines

SKYACTIV-Drive (automatic)

Shifts are fast and refined for maximum driving fun and high efficiency. The 6-speed transmission connects directly with the engine across a far wider range than other automatics for increased fuel economy and more direct power delivery.

SKYACTIV-MT (manual)

The 6-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission delivers accurate, sports-car style shifting through simplified design and a precision mechanism.
