Mazda CX-3: Brake System / Brake Assist

Mazda CX-3 (2015-2022) Owner's Manual / When Driving / Brake / Brake System / Brake Assist

During emergency braking situations when it is necessary to depress the brake pedal with greater force, the brake assist system provides braking assistance, thus enhancing braking performance.

When the brake pedal is depressed hard or depressed more quickly, the brakes apply more firmly.

NOTE

  • When the brake pedal is depressed hard or depressed more quickly, the pedal will feel softer but the brakes will apply more firmly. This is a normal effect of the brake assist operation and does not indicate a malfunction.
  • When the brake pedal is depressed hard or depressed more quickly, a motor/ pump operation noise may be heard. This is a normal effect of the brake assist and does not indicate a malfunction.
  • The brake assist equipment does not supersede the functionality of the vehicle's main braking system.
