Mazda CX-3 (2015-2022) Owner's Manual / When Driving / i-ACTIVSENSE / Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go function (MRCC with Stop & Go function) (Some models) / Cruise Control Function

While this function is operating, the headway control operation is canceled and only the cruise control function operates. The vehicle speed can be set more than about 25 km/h (16 mph).

Use the cruise control function on expressways and other highways which do not require a lot of repeated acceleration and deceleration.

WARNING

Do not use the cruise control function in the following locations: Otherwise, it could lead to an accident.

  • Roads with sharp curves and where vehicle traffic is heavy and there is insufficient space between vehicles. (Driving under these conditions using the cruise control function is not possible)
  • Steep down slopes (Set speed may be exceeded because sufficient engine braking cannot be applied)
  • Slippery roads such as ice or snow-bound roads (Tires could spin causing you to lose vehicle control)

Always drive carefully: The warnings and brake control will not operate after the headway control function is canceled and the system is switched to only the cruise control function. Depress the brake pedal to decelerate according to the surrounding conditions while keeping a safer distance from the vehicle ahead and always driving carefully.

Switching to cruise control function

When the MODE switch is pressed until the system switches to the cruise main indication (white) while the MRCC with Stop & Go function system is turned on, the system switches to the cruise control function.

When the system switches to the cruise control function, the indicator and active driving display notify the driver as follows:

  • The MRCC with Stop & Go function set indication (green) or the MRCC with Stop & Go function main indication (white) is turned off, and the cruise main indication (white) is turned on.

WARNING

Always turn off the cruise control function when it is not in use: Leaving the cruise control function turned on when it is not in use is dangerous as it could operate unexpectedly, resulting in an accident.
