Mazda Puts Safety First

April 13th, 2020 by


As modern technology has continued to grow and evolve, one of the most exciting advances has been the advent of intelligent driver assistance features in vehicles. These features, which range from collision mitigation braking to blind-spot monitoring to traffic sign detection, help keep drivers safer than ever on the roadways.

Mazda has always been committed to the safety of their drivers, which is why their vehicles have won numerous accolades for safety over the years. The Mazda CX-5, CX-3, Mazda6,  the Mazda3 sedan and hatchback, and the Mazda CX-9 were all named a 2020 IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus – the organization’s highest possible safety rating. Additionally, the new Mazda CX-30 was named as an IHH Top Safety Pick. Let’s explore just a few of the ways Mazda helps drivers stay safer on the roads.

Active Driver Assistance Features

Mazda’s I-ACTIVSENSE® safety suite uses milliwave radars and cameras to monitor your surroundings while you’re focused on the road. It includes pre-collision technology such as automatic emergency braking and pre-collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive radar cruise control, a lane-keeping system, and more. When the systems detect a potential road hazard, they’ll use visual and auditory alerts to notify you, and will take action when necessary. With these driver assistance features in play, you’ll feel more secure on every drive.

Passive Safety Technology

Passive safety technologies help protect occupants of the vehicle and reduce damage in the event of an accident. In Mazda vehicles, these include the rigid SKYACTIV®-Body with its ring structure, which helps absorb the impact of a collision, seatbelts with pretensioner and load limits, an anti-intrusion brake pedal, SRS Airbags, LATCH car seat tethers, and more.
