Mazda Taiwan introduces the new Mazda 2023, Mazda CX-30 and Mazda CX-5. In the midst of a global shortage of raw materials and rising vehicle prices, Mazda is holding the line and upgrading its active safety technology. The ALH intelligent headlamps, which include anti-glare high beam, wide-angle low beam and enhanced illumination distance at high speed, not only improve the visibility of night-time traffic, but also prevent glare from other vehicles, providing comprehensive protection for the safety of drivers and other road users.
New and improved ALH intelligent headlamps
“Safety” is always a key consideration when buying a car, and Mazda not only creates a car that is fun to drive, but also enhances the driver’s confidence and sense of security. Numerous studies have shown that poor lighting conditions when driving at night result in a higher rate of road accidents at night, and that a clearer view of the road reduces the chance of accidents and thus the likelihood of collisions and injuries.
ALH intelligent headlamps include an anti-glare high beam, a wide-angle low beam and enhanced distance at high speeds. Conventional headlamps are designed to be single directional, with the light only being directed directly in front of the vehicle. When driving on winding mountain roads at night, the headlamps are often only directed at the mountain wall, making it impossible for the driver to react to the road conditions after the turn, thus increasing the likelihood of an accident. In order to provide more intelligent protection technology, the 2023 Mazda3/Mazda CX-30/Mazda CX-5 main models are equipped with ALH (Adaptive LED Headlights), which uses sensors to recognise the road ahead and automatically adjusts to three light patterns depending on the speed of the vehicle, as well as providing Depending on the steering wheel angle, up to six illumination angles are available, reducing dead spots.
At speeds greater than 40km/h, the anti-glare high beam dynamically blocks part of the beam to protect the view of drivers in the opposite or front direction, reducing the discomfort caused by the headlights to the car in front, oncoming traffic and pedestrians; at speeds below 40km/h, it switches to the low beam. In addition, when driving at speeds above 95km/h on the motorway, the ALH can raise the angle of the headlamps upwards to enhance the illumination distance and ensure the driver has the best possible visibility.
The 2023 Mazda3/Mazda CX-30/Mazda CX-5 are equipped with ALH intelligent headlamps, as well as the class-leading i-ACTIVSENSE active safety technology, including MRCC, CTS and CTS with pedestrian detection. The iACTIVSENSE is equipped with a wide range of class-leading active safety technologies, including MRCC, Cruise Control Lane Keeping Assist (CTS), Smart Forward Braking Assist (SBS) with pedestrian detection, Blind Spot Detection (BSM), Rear Crossing Alert (RCTA), Lane Drift Warning System (LDWS), as well as High and Low Beam Control (HBC) and Lane Drift Prevention System (LAS) with Lane Drift Warning System (LDWS), to provide the driver with a more secure and fearless driving experience.
