The 2021 Mazda CX-30 Turbo models are available with i-Activsense safety technology, which is Mazda’s suite of advanced safety and driver-assist features that help prevent or at least minimize the impact of any crash or collision. Some high-tech safety features that are included within i-Activsense include Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Lane-Keep Assist.
Smart Brake Support and Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go are also available features for some of the CX-30 Turbo models. Smart Brake Support detects anything from pedestrians to bicyclists in the path of your vehicle, issues an audible warning, and applies the brakes of your vehicle on its own if necessary.
Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go allows you to set your vehicle at a certain speed and is capable of automatically slowing down your CX-30, bringing it to a full stop, and accelerating it in order to keep your vehicle at a set following distance away from the vehicle in front of it.

Traffic Jam Assist is another advanced driver-assist feature that is available for the highest trim level of the Mazda CX-30 Turbo models—the 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus model.
This lane-centering system engages the CX-30 Turbo’s steering system and braking and acceleration systems. It is designed to keep your vehicle in the correct lane at all times without driver intervention and can slow down, stop and accelerate your vehicle all of its own accord when you are driving up to 40 MPH.
