2018 Mazda CX-5 Active Driving display

Mazda i-ACTIVSENSE® system is a driver assistance suite that utilizes technology like cameras, radar, and collision mitigation features in order to increase driver awareness and decrease the likelihood and impact of an accident. From the Mazda CX-5 to the Mazda6, you can feel confident in your Mazda model thanks to Mazda i-ACTIVSENSE®. See how Mazda i-ACTIVSENSE® can help keep you safer when cruising the streets of Irmo with this guide from Midlands Mazda.

Adaptive Front-Lighting System (AFS)

Mazda has won a number of top safety awards thanks in no small part to high-tech safety features like the Adaptive Front-Lighting System (AFS). One of the more difficult things about driving at night in Lexington is reduced visibility, particularly when traveling down dark, winding roads. AFS helps solve that potential problem. Working in tandem with the vehicle’s steering column, AFS is able to actually turn the headlights, so the light bends around the corner, illuminating what’s coming around the curve, so you can better anticipate obstructions and make necessary maneuvers.

Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC)

With this technology, cruising through Irmo has never been easier. MRCC is an advanced cruise control system that uses sonar to detect the distance between the front of your vehicle and the back of the vehicle in front of you. It then automatically accelerates and brakes in order to maintain a safe amount of buffer space. Also included is the Distance Recognition Support System (DRSS), which lets drivers know the exact distance between their vehicle and the one in front of them.

Other Mazda i-ACTIVSENSE® Features

In addition to the Adaptive Front-Lighting System (AFS) and Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC), the Mazda i-ACTIVSENSE® system comes with several other features, including:

  • Rear Vehicle Monitoring System (RVM)
  • Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)
  • Forward Obstruction Warning (FOW)
  • Smart City Brake Support
