How Does Mazda Radar Cruise Control Work?
Mazda has many active and passive safety systems in its new models that help to keep you safe behind the wheel. These systems were built to help take some of the stress off of you while driving, and while they are not meant to take the place of vigilant driving, they help to make each drive more convenient and comfortable for you. Let’s take a closer look at the Mazda Radar Cruise Control system.

Mazda Radar Cruise Control
Mazda Radar Cruise Control* (MRCC) is most commonly used on long drives and highways. It uses a millimeter wave radar to determine the approximate speed and distance of the vehicle in front of you and works to control your vehicle’s speed to stay a predetermined distance away when you set the cruise control.
MRCC automatically adjusts your speed up or down to help you keep up with the flow of traffic without having to manually adjust for ebbs and flows in traffic. This system makes driving long distances at highway speeds less stressful for the driver. It is important to note that this system has its limitations and is not a replacement for safe and attentive driving.
*MRCC may not perform as expected due to factors such as the shape of the vehicle in front (some shapes do not reflect radar well, etc.), bad weather (rain, snow, fog, etc.), and road conditions (multiple curves, undulations, etc.).
