Mazda Millenia Improved Safety

In addition to improved maneuvering stability and braking performance, based on the Mazda theme of "Dynamic DNA," the new Millenia also provides new active safety features such as Electronically- controlled Braking force Distribution system (EBD)-except for the 4WS-equipped models. The reinforced body is filled in strategic spots with the world's first high-strength resin foam plastic. This highly rigid and safe body combines with passive safety features such as Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) side airbags with special head protection.

Mazda Millenia Improved Safety
Active Safety Features
- The defroster ducts and grilles have been redesigned to improve the performance of the climate control system and improve the effectiveness of windshield defogging. Also, the windshield wiper blades are made of fluorine-coated rubber for improved visibility when raining.
- All models are equipped with brake assist as a standard feature. EBD is also standard on all models except for those equipped with 4WS. Traction Control System (TCS) is standard on the 25M luxury package as well as 25M versions equipped with 4WS. It is available as an option on the 25M and 25M sports package.

Passive Safety Features
- Strategic spots in the body frame are filled with the world's first high-strength resin foam plastic, developed by Mazda. This technology provides increased strength and substantially improves safety in the event of a collision. The center pillars are filled in places with high-strength foam plastic to prevent localized bending and more effectively disperse the forces of an impact with very little increase in weight. This design enhancement ensures better passenger protection in case of a side collision. The highly rigid and safe body has front and rear crush zones for greater cabin strength.
- All models have driver- and passenger-side SRS airbags as standard equipment. SRS side airbags with special head protection are standard on all versions except the 20M (On the 20M they are available as a factory option).
