Brake Assist and EBD

Sometimes, although drivers press the brake pedal as hard as they can, it may not be sufficient. Brake Assist measures the speed at which the brake pedal is pressed and the braking pressure and when the force is judged to be insufficient the system compensates by applying additional pressure.

Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) makes it easier to maintain vehicle control and shortens the stopping distance when there is a large load on the rear wheels, such as when the car is carrying a full load of passengers. EBD optimally distributes the braking power between the front and rear wheels depending on the load in order to increase the effectiveness of the rear-wheel braking and minimize the difference in stopping distance between when the car is fully loaded and when it is not.

* Brake Assist and EBD are designed to reduce the risk of accidents. However the system has its limitations, and no safety system or combination of such systems can prevent all accidents. These systems are not a replacement for safe and attentive driving. Please drive carefully at all times and do not rely on technology to prevent an accident. Not all of these systems are available on all models or in all markets, so please contact your local Mazda dealer for details on availability. Please refer to your owners' manual for additional important system details, limitations and warnings.
