Mazda is proud of all the safety features they’ve packed into the new 2013 Mazda6. They’ve even come up with a cool name for referring to them: i-ACTIVSENSE. To explain the i-ACTIVSENSE they have made a video which showcases all the features and systems involved. But don’t expect any technical briefing here.

Mazda didn’t want to bore people to death with technical stuff, so instead they tell you a story:

Here’s a list of some of the more important safety features Mazda6 is blessed with:

  • High-Beam Control system (HBC) uses a sensor to detect oncoming vehicles and automatically changes between high and low beam to help avoid blinding other drivers during night driving.
  • Adaptive Front-lighting system (AFS) predicts curves based on the degree of steering input and vehicle speed and turns the headlights in the direction that the vehicle is actually heading. This improves visibility when driving at night.
  • Hill Launch Assist (HLA) helps prevent the Mazda 6 from rolling backwards while the driver’s foot moves from the brake pedal to the accelerator pedal when taking off on a hill.
  • Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) cause the hazard lights to rapidly flicker on and off in the event of panic braking at 50 km/h or faster in order to warn vehicles behind.
  • Rear Vehicle Monitoring (RVM) comes into effect at speeds of 30 km/h or faster and detects cars approaching from behind or driving in the blind spot on either side, warning the driver when he turns on the indicator to change lanes.
  • The Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) uses a camera to judge the position of lines on the road and warns the driver of unintentional lane departures, thus minimizing the risk of collision due to driver inattention or fatigue.
  • Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) uses a near-infrared beam sensor to help prevent and, in cases where prevention is not possible, reduce the impact of frontal collisions at low speed (up to 30 km/h) by automatically applying the vehicle’s brakes.
