Mazda’s i-Activsense has 2 features you did not know about

With car technology becoming increasingly diverse and complicated, it’s easy to get lost in the sea of acronyms and labels.  This is why we are explaining Mazda’s i-Activsense in a simpler fashion to you and we are starting with its component parts.  So what does i-Activsense include?

Smart City Brake Support (SCBS)

First on the acronym list is SCBS – Smart City Brake Support.  This smart system utilises the built-in sensors to continually monitor the distance and closing speed to objects in front of you.  In the event that the car thinks you’re getting too close to the object in front, there will be an audible and visual warning for the driver.  Not only that, the system can also prime the brakes for an emergency stop if the distance is deemed too short.

Adaptive LED Headlights with Highway Mode (ALH)

Visibility when driving at night especially with on coming headlights blinding you can be very difficult and dangerous.  Mazda worked at a problem solver and developed Adaptive LED Headlights.  This is done with 4 unique functions:

  • Glare-free High Beam – Detects the positions of vehicles ahead and oncoming traffic, turning off sections of LEDs.
  • Wide-range Low Beam – Ensures LED lights illuminate both sides of the road to help light up junctions and turns.
  • Highway Mode – Raises headlamp optical axis when driving at motorway speeds to increase visibility at a distance
