Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go function
(MRCC with Stop & Go function)*
The MRCC with Stop & Go function system is designed to maintain headway control*1
with a vehicle ahead according to your vehicle's speed using a radar sensor (front) to detect
the distance to the vehicle ahead and a preset vehicle speed without you having to use the
accelerator or brake pedals.
*1
Headway Control: Control of the distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead
detected by the Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC) system.
Additionally, if your vehicle starts closing in on the vehicle ahead such as if the vehicle
ahead brakes suddenly, a warning sound and a warning indication in the display are
activated simultaneously to alert you to maintain a sufficient distance between the vehicles.
If the vehicle ahead stops while you are following behind it, your vehicle will stop and be
held stopped automatically (stop hold control), and headway control will resume when you
resume driving the vehicle such as by pressing the RES switch.
Also refer to the following before using the MRCC with Stop & Go function.
AUTOHOLD (page 4-105)
Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) (page 4-215)
Radar sensor (front) (page 4-220)
WARNING
Do not rely completely on the MRCC with Stop & Go function:
The MRCC with Stop & Go function system has detection limitations depending on the type of
vehicle ahead and its conditions, the weather conditions, and the road conditions.
Additionally, the system may be unable to decelerate sufficiently to avoid hitting the vehicle
ahead if the vehicle ahead applies the brakes suddenly or another vehicle cuts into the driving
lane, which could result in an accident.
Always drive carefully and verify the surrounding conditions and depress the brake pedal or
accelerator pedal while keeping a safer distance from vehicles ahead or on-coming vehicles.
Do not use the MRCC with Stop & Go function system in the following locations, using the
MRCC with Stop & Go function system at the following locations may result in an unexpected
accident:
¾ General roads other than highways (Driving under these conditions using the MRCC with
Stop & Go function system is not possible.)
¾ Roads with sharp curves and where vehicle traffic is heavy and there is insufficient space
between vehicles.
4-150
*Some models.
When Driving
i-ACTIVSENSE
¾ Roads where frequent and repetitive acceleration and deceleration occur (Driving under
these conditions using the MRCC with Stop & Go function system is not possible).
¾ When entering and exiting interchanges, service areas, and parking areas of highways (If
you exit a highway while headway control is in use, the vehicle ahead will no longer be
tracked and your vehicle may accelerate to the set speed).
¾ Slippery roads such as ice or snow-bound roads (Tires could spin causing you to lose vehicle
control, or the stop hold control may not operate.)
¾ Long, descending slopes (to maintain distance between vehicles, the system automatically
and continuously applies the brakes which could result in the loss of brake power.)
¾ Slopes with a steep gradient (The vehicle ahead may not be detected correctly, your vehicle
may slide while stopped by the stop hold control, and it may accelerate suddenly after it
starts moving.)
For safety purposes, switch the MRCC with Stop & Go function system off when it is not being
used.
Do not get out of the vehicle while the stop hold control is operating:
Getting out of the vehicle while the stop hold control is operating is dangerous as the vehicle
may move unexpectedly and result in an accident. Before getting out of the vehicle, switch the
MRCC with Stop & Go function system off, shift the selector lever to the P position, and apply
the parking brake.
CAUTION
If your vehicle is towed or you are towing something, switch the MRCC with Stop & Go
function system off to prevent a mis-operation.
NOTE
The MRCC with Stop & Go function system does not detect the following as physical
objects.
Vehicles approaching in the opposite direction
Pedestrians
Stationary objects (stopped vehicles, obstructions)
If a vehicle ahead is traveling at an extremely low speed, the system may not detect it
correctly.
During headway control travel, do not set the system for detection of two-wheeled
vehicles such as motorcycles and bicycles.
Do not use the MRCC with Stop & Go function system under conditions in which close
proximity warnings are frequently activated.
4-151
When Driving
i-ACTIVSENSE
During headway control travel, the system accelerates and decelerates your vehicle in
conjunction with the speed of the vehicle ahead. However, if it is necessary to accelerate
for a lane change or if the vehicle ahead brakes suddenly causing you to close in on the
vehicle rapidly, accelerate using the accelerator pedal or decelerate using the brake
pedal depending on the conditions.
While the MRCC with Stop & Go function system is in use, it does not cancel even if the
selector lever is operated and any intended engine braking does not occur. If deceleration
is required, lower the set speed or depress the brake pedal.
The sound of the automatic brakes operating may be heard, however, it does not indicate
a problem.
The brake lights turn on while the MRCC with Stop & Go function automatic braking is
operating.

Lane-keep Assist System (LAS) & Lane Departure
Warning System (LDWS)*
The LAS & LDWS alerts the driver that the vehicle may be deviating from its lane and it
provides steering assistance to help the driver stay within the vehicle lanes.
The Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) detects the white lines (yellow lines) of the vehicle
lane in which the vehicle is traveling and if the system determines that the vehicle may
deviate from its lane, it operates the electric power steering to assist the driver's steering
operation. The system also alerts the driver by activating a lane departure warning sound,
vibrating the steering wheel, and indicating an alert in the display. Use the system when you
drive the vehicle on roads with white (yellow) lines such as expressways and highways.
Refer to Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) on page 4-215.

WARNING
Do not rely completely on the LAS & LDWS:
¾ The LAS & LDWS is not an automatic driving system. In addition, the system is not designed
to compensate for a driver's lack of caution, and over-reliance on the system could lead to
an accident.
¾ The detection ability of the LAS & LDWS is limited. Always stay on course using the steering
wheel and drive with care.
Do not use the LAS & LDWS in the following cases:
The system may not operate adequately according to the actual driving conditions, resulting

Advanced Smart City Brake Support (Advanced SCBS)*
The Advanced SCBS alerts the driver of a possible collision using the display and a warning
sound when the Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) detects a vehicle ahead or pedestrian and
determines that a collision with the object is unavoidable while the vehicle is driven at a
vehicle speed of about 4 to 80 km/h (2 to 50 mph) if the object is a vehicle ahead and about
10 to 80 km/h (6.2 to 50 mph) if the object is a pedestrian. In addition, the system reduces
damage in the event of a collision by operating the brake control (Advanced SCBS brake)
when the system determines that a collision is unavoidable. In addition, when the driver
depresses the brake pedal, the brakes are applied firmly and quickly to assist. (Brake Assist
(Advanced SCBS brake assist))
Forward Sensing
Camera (FSC)
WARNING
Do not rely completely on the Advanced SCBS system:
¾ The Advanced 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.
¾ The Advanced SCBS system operates in response to a vehicle ahead or a pedestrian. The
system does not operate in response to obstructions such as a wall, 2-wheeled vehicles, or
animals.
*Some models.
4-175
When Driving
i-ACTIVSENSE
CAUTION
In the following cases, turn the system off to prevent a mis-operation:
¾ The vehicle is being towed or when towing another vehicle.
¾ The vehicle is on a chassis roller.
¾ When driving on rough roads such as in areas of dense grass or off-road.
Refer to Stopping the Advanced Smart City Brake Support (Advanced SCBS) System Operation
on page 4-177 on how to turn off the Advanced SCBS system.
NOTE
The Advanced SCBS system will operate under the following conditions.
The engine is running.
The Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) warning indication(amber) does not illuminate.
(Object is vehicle ahead)
The vehicle speed is between about 4 to 80 km/h (2 to 50 mph).
(Object is a pedestrian)
The vehicle speed is between about 10 to 80 km/h (6.2 to 50 mph).
The Advanced SCBS system is not turned off.
Under the following conditions, the Advanced SCBS system may not operate normally:
The Advanced SCBS system will not operate if the driver is deliberately performing
driving operations (accelerator pedal and steering wheel).
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.
In the following cases, the Advanced SCBS may operate.
Objects on the road at the entrance to a curve.
Vehicles passing in the opposite lane while making a curve.
When passing through a toll gate.
When passing through low gates, narrow gates, car washing machines, or tunnels.

Smart City Brake Support [Forward] (SCBS F)*
The SCBS F 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 F system:
¾ The SCBS F 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.
¾ The SCBS F 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.
