How to use adaptive cruise control on Mazda CX-3, CX-5, CX-9, CX-30, Mazda3 or Mazda6

Mazda Radar Cruise Control or MRCC with Stop-and-Go function reduces driver effort by automatically maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle in front.

A radar sensor in front of the car monitors the road ahead. When approaching a slower vehicle, the system automatically adjusts the speed of your car to maintain a safe following distance.


How to adjust gap: You can adjust this distance by using the up or down buttons on the steering wheel.

When the vehicle in front moves out of the way or you change lanes, Mazda’s Radar Cruise Control returns your car to the original set speed.

If the vehicle in front comes to a complete stop the system will slowly stop your car at safe distance behind. If rapid braking is required, to avoid a collision, MRCC will alert the driver to brake harder.

When the vehicle in front departs, the system will issue an alert, letting you know it is clear ahead. Once you tap or depress the accelerator, the system will automatically speed up to the preset speed or distance, depending on whether you are behind the slower vehicle.
