Mazda CX-3: i-ACTIVSENSE / Smart City Brake Support (SCBS)(Some models)

Mazda CX-3 (2015-2022) Owner's Manual / When Driving / i-ACTIVSENSE / Smart City Brake Support (SCBS)(Some models)

The SCBS system alerts the driver of a possible collision using an indication in the display and a warning sound when the Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) detects a vehicle ahead and determines that a collision with a vehicle ahead is unavoidable while the vehicle is being driven at a vehicle speed of about 4 to 80 km/h (2 to 50 mph). In addition, the system reduces damage in the event of a collision by operating the brake control (Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) brake) when the system determines that a collision is unavoidable while the vehicle is being driven at a vehicle speed of about 4 to 30 km/h (2 to 18 mph). It may also be possible to avoid a collision if the relative speed between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you is less than about 20 km/h (12 mph). In addition, when the driver depresses the brake pedal while the system is in the operation range at about 4 to 30 km/h (2 to 18 mph), the brakes are applied firmly and quickly to assist. (Brake Assist (Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) brake assist))

WARNING

Do not rely completely on the SCBS system:

The SCBS system is only designed to reduce damage in the event of a collision. Over reliance on the system leading to the accelerator pedal or brake pedal being mistakenly operated could result in an accident.

The SCBS is a system which operates in response to a vehicle ahead. The system may not be able to detect or react to 2-wheeled vehicles or pedestrians.

CAUTION

In the following cases, turn the system off to prevent a mis-operation:

  • The vehicle is being towed or when towing another vehicle.
  • The vehicle is on a chassis roller.
  • When driving on rough roads such as in areas of dense grass or off-road.

Refer to Stopping the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system Operation on how to turn off the SCBS system.

  • The SCBS system will operate under the following conditions.
    • The engine is running.
    • The Smart Brake Support/Smart City Brake Support (SBS/SCBS) system warning light (amber) does not illuminate.

    • If there is the possibility of partial contact with a vehicle ahead.
    • The vehicle is driven on a slippery road surface such as wet roads or icy or snow-bound roads.
    • The braking performance is adversely affected due to cold temperatures or wet brakes.
    • The vehicle is driven at the same speed as the vehicle ahead.
    • The accelerator pedal is depressed.
    • The brake pedal is depressed.
    • The steering wheel is being operated.
    • The selector lever is being operated.

    • Vehicles passing in the opposite lane while making a curve.
    • Metal objects, bumps, or protruding objects on the road.
