I just bought a 2014 Mazda 3 s Grand Touring with Tech Package a couple weeks ago, it's a "J"-VIN car, and it supposedly came loaded with all of the goodies. It has Lane Departure and Blind Spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Heads-Up Display, and i-eLoop. It supposedly has Smart City Brake Support; I only know this because it has an option in the menu for it.

From the reviews I read for this model year on Edmunds and other sites, it's also supposed to have Forward Collision Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control. But I see no indication in the menus, in the instrument cluster, or in the manual that these options exist on my Mazda.

How could I tell for sure? Was there a known gap / range of Mazda3's that were built without these? I don't have the original window sticker so I can't tell from there. My 3 has a 3D rather than 2D Mazda grille emblem; I know on the Mazda6 that the 2D emblem is for the Adaptive Cruise Control radar but I don't see it on the 3.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
-Raj

The earlier 2014 models with the tech package doesn't have the adaptive cruise control (radar cruise control) option. When the 2014 first came out, the tech package was $1600 and did not include ACC. It was later that it came out with ACC in the tech package which costs $2600. If you have a regular emblem up front then you don't have ACC.

:| Crap I wish I'd known that, the dealer's description said it had it, but they also have a disclaimer. Oh well, here's hoping I don't crash without warning. :smile2:
