Dynamic Stability Control & Traction Control System

Active car safety to keep you in control


Our Dynamic Stability Control system keeps your car more stable when you’re cornering or have to swerve around an object or person. When required the system reduces your engine power and regulates braking pressure on individual wheels. So this car safety feature helps you stay in control when you may naturally oversteer or understeer.

And our Traction Control System stops your wheels from spinning on slippery or challenging surfaces such as loose stones, by regulating the torque of your engine.

The protective body shell with MAIDAS technology and multiple airbags provides advanced passenger safety.


A passive car safety feature giving you extra protection


This is the Mazda Advanced Impact Distribution and Absorption System (or MAIDAS, for short). It’s part of the body shell and has shock absorbing crumple zones that spread the impact of a collision. In this way MAIDAS protects the critical interior space of your car – and it’s a car safety feature with an excellent collision performance.

We’ve engineered the Mazda MX-5’s body shell from ultra-high tensile steel, which is light as well as strong. So this car safety feature increases your safety without reducing your car’s agile driving performance.
