Safety

The Mazda MX-5 facelift has the same outstanding active and passive safety package as the original third-generation model. Its brake system with 290 mm ventilated front discs and 280 mm solid rear discs delivers great brake pedal response and deceleration performance. With the facelift, dynamic stability control (DSC) and traction control system (TCS) are now standard in most European markets. New as well to the line-up is a tyre pressure monitoring system (depending on grade and market). The newly introduced external temperature display keeps the driver informed and helps to ensure safe driving in winter.

Passive safety includes a high-tensile steel cabin, ultra high tensile roll-over brace bars in the A-pillars, side impact protection and strong body floor cross members. Front airbags with passenger airbag deactivation are standard, and in most markets spezial two-chamber side airbags that help protect both the thorax and the head are standard as well. These airbags are integrated into the seatback and are activated by a common gas generator and inflator, which inflate both chambers faster than some singlechamber systems.
