Mazda 3 Owners Manual: Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)

Mazda 3 Owners Manual / When Driving / i-ACTIVSENSE / Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)

The Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) system is designed to assist the driver in checking the area to the rear of the vehicle on both sides while the vehicle is reversing by alerting the driver to the presence of vehicles approaching the rear of the vehicle.

The Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) system detects vehicles approaching from the left and right sides of the vehicle while the vehicle is being reversed out of a parking space, and notifies the driver of possible danger using the Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) warning lights and the warning buzzer.
