Staying safe behind the wheel of your Mazda CX-5 is no concern with a long list of standard and available safety features. This makes the CX-5 perfect for families as it gives parents peace of mind and it can also appeal to individuals who simply make safety a priority. If you are looking for a vehicle that has ample safety features then you should consider the Mazda CX-5.
In terms of engineering and brakes, every single CX-5 model comes with Electronic Brake Force Distribution, an Anti-lock Brake System, Traction Control, Stability Control, and Hill Launch Assist. These features help provide consistent braking among varying road conditions so you can stop safely. They also help to insure your vehicle has solid traction on slippery roads. Other standard safety includes front side airbags, dual front airbags, dual side air curtains, along with a rollover sensor and more sensors for the passenger airbags. These are here to protect passengers in the event of a collision. You also get 3-point seat belts, child seat anchors, and seat-belt pretensioners in front.
Technology Package Safety
To make the most out of the available safety on the Mazda CX-5, choose the GT trim with the Technology Package. This will give you Mazda Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Obstruction Warning, Smart Brake Support, and Smart City Brake Support. These systems will help notify you if the vehicle is leaving its lane or if oncoming traffic has crossed into your lane, among other things. Simply picking the GS or GT adds a Blind Spot Monitoring System along with Rear Cross Traffic Alert. With these fail safes in place you will be safer when backing your vehicle and when changing lanes.
The available safety technologies mentioned above all fall under the category of i-ACTIVSENSE safety features. Another available one, High Beam Control, will automatically switch your headlights between low and high beams so you can easily spot a potential hazard without blinding other drivers. The Adaptive Front Lighting System moves your headlights 15 degrees or less in the direction that you turn to boost visibility while driving. These added features increase visibility and make driving your Mazda CX5 easier.
Smart City Brake Support is a unique feature found in the Mazda lineup, including the CX-5. This feature relies on a laser sensor that is near infrared and will detect vehicles ahead of you. It works at a distance of six meters or less and will help you apply the brakes if it detects the risk of collision is high. This can save you time and help decrease speed, making a collision less hazardous than if had while the car was travelling full speed.
