i-ACTIVSENSE® SAFETY TECHNOLOGY
Each element of the CX-9 is created to inspire a confident drive. It offers a suite of safety technologies2 designed to alert you to potential hazards and help you avoid collisions—or lessen their impact. Standard features include Advanced Smart City Brake Support with Day and Night-time Pedestrian Detection.3
Blind Spot Monitoring5 detects objects in your blind spots and alerts you with a chime and warning light in the side mirror and Active Driving Display (when equipped). It also warns you of fast approaching vehicles that may enter a blind spot from behind.
Advanced Smart City Brake Support with Day and Night-time Pedestrian Detection6 helps detect vehicles and pedestrians in your path. If an impact is predicted, the system will warn the driver and, if necessary, apply the brakes.
When backing up, Rear Cross Traffic Alert7 helps detect a vehicle approaching from the side and promptly alerts the driver with an audible warning, as well as a visual warning, in either side mirror and the Rear View Monitor display.
Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go8 lets you maintain a set speed and minimum following distance from the traffic ahead. If the vehicle you’re following reduces speed, even down to a stop, your vehicle is able to slow or stop as needed.
This available system is designed to help you see around corners at night. As you turn a corner, the headlights pivot in the direction of your turn, improve visibility and help you to spot potential hazards ahead. For added safety, automatic on/off LED Headlights with auto height control is standard on all trims.
Mazda’s automatic braking technology includes standard high and low speed systems9 (shown) and an available system that works while in reverse.10 If an impact is predicted, these systems will warn the driver and, if necessary, apply the brakes.
When traveling at speeds of 37 mph or higher, the Lane Departure Warning System11 gives you a combination of audible and visual warnings when it detects that you are about to unintentionally depart from your lane. And with Lane-keep Assist12, minor steering corrections are made to help keep your vehicle in its lane.
Available Driver Attention Alert13 monitors the driver’s steering and throttle inputs and lane position. When it recognizes driving behavior suggesting driver fatigue or decreased attentiveness, it activates a warning sound and displays an alert in the LCD Meter Display.
Using the vehicle’s front facing camera, the available Traffic Sign Recognition System14 can actually read certain road signs and display the information in the Active Driving Display, so you can stay aware and informed without taking your eyes off the road.
High Beam Control helps the driver see better at night by maximizing opportunities to use the high beams. The system automatically switches to low beams when it detects oncoming traffic and/or a vehicle ahead.
