Active safety features with Mazda's i-ACTIVSENSE greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. An active safety system that is standard on the 2022 Mazda CX-30 is Forward Obstruction Warning with Smart City Brake Support / Smart Brake Support. Some safety features are optional on the 2022 Mazda CX-30--- although they add to the cost, one should consider the benefits of Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) and Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM).

Some advanced safety features --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Optional High-Beam Control System (HBC) automatically switches high beam headlights off when oncoming traffic is approaching and turns them back on when there aren't any vehicles ahead. Optional side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you.

And it is safer than many comparable models.
