Mazda Proactive Safety: Mazda's Safety Philosophy

Mazda's safety philosophy, which guides the research and development of safety technologies, is based on understanding, respecting and trusting the driver.

To drive safely, it is essential to act in an appropriate fashion in each step of recognition, judgment and operation. Mazda aims to support these essential functions so that drivers can drive safely and with peace of mind, despite changing driving conditions.
Since drivers are human beings, and thus fallible, Mazda offers a range of technologies which help to prevent or reduce the damage resulting from an accident.
