Blind spot monitoring & rear cross traffic alert

This is the first review I have seen that gives specific detail on these safety features;

“Mazda CX-3 Touring adds a blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, heated mirrors, and leather-wrapped steering wheel.“

It's dated 7/14 but some of the info is outdated...?

God, I hope thats accurate. I've only seen one other mention of that being on the Touring. It would make sense, as that would be consistent with how the Touring models of the CX-5 and Mazda3 are equipped.

The BSM and RCTA are the only reason I would go for a Touring model depending on the price points. On the other hand, I may just go for the Sport and be happy with lower payments.

This total silence on things like configurations and price points is killing me!

At least the salesperson I've been working with says he's going for training on the CX-3 within the next week or so.

Any guesses as to how we can see safety systems grow in future years? What could Mazda add to the CX-3? What would be out of the CX-3's league?

The Canadian brochure and mazda Canada website doesn't include rear cross traffic on the Tech package. But when we got ours, we were surprised to hear beeping when reversing in a shopping centre. We then proceeded to test it out and sure enough we do have it. We don't have adaptive cruise on our GT Tech though. Unlike the lane departure, we don't get any display telling us its active even on the heads up display. Maybe we are not supposed to get it....

It is in my Canadian brochure and on the Canadian website, included in the Tech package at $1500 CDN (only available on the top end GT).
"Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) .....................TECH"


.... and on mine .....

and no adaptive cruise but how to use is in the owners manual but is missing the ON/OFF on the steering wheel.
Note some markets have a hard ON/OFF for the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) next to lane departure switch ON/OFF
but others just have the ON/OFF in the setting screen so it is there just no hard ON/OFF.

So far no reviews I've seen for Canada and U.S. CX-3s have a detailed look at the safety systems. I'd expect that Consumer Reports might as they're reportedly currently testing a just-purchased CX-3 for review and they constantly talk up advanced safety systems.
Vehicle safety features to look for | Consumer Reports

The quick-start manual for the U.S. Mazda 2016 CX-5 might be the best predictor of the i-Activ controls for the U.S. CX-3.
See page 21 for example:
