Which 2019 Mazda Model is the Safest?
In our world of innovation and technology, drivers seem to be most concerned with vehicles that look the best or have the best technology. While this is certainly important (and prevalent in Mazda models), safety is often overlooked. Some automakers make safety features a second thought; something to be considered after all the fun features are installed first. Mazda doesn’t play that way, as evidenced by their history of performing well in the safety award sector. Read on to learn which of the 2019 Mazda models is the safest!
We’re basing the safest Mazda model on what was reported by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The best rating a vehicle can earn is the Top Safety Pick+ award, followed by a Top Safety Pick award. All three of the SUVs in the 2019 Mazda lineup were on this list, with the CX-3 and CX-9 earning Top Safety Pick awards while the CX-5 earned the coveted Top Safety Pick+ award when equipped with the optional front crash prevention and specific headlights. Because neither the Mazda3 nor Mazda6 were released during the time this test was taken, they haven’t been named to the list despite the plethora of passive and active safety features they’ll be equipped with.
It shouldn’t surprise drivers that Mazda made it on this list, as they pride themselves in being versatile and delivering on multiple fronts. The CX-5 continues to be a popular option for compact SUV shoppers. Some of the active safety features available include:
- 360º View Monitor
- Adaptive Front-Lighting System
- Advanced Smart City Brake Support
- Blind Spot Monitoring
- Dynamic Stability Control
- Electronic Parking Brake
- Front and Rear Parking Sensors
- Lane Departure Warning
- Lane Keep Assist
- Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go
- Pedestrian Detection
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Rearview Camera
- Smart Brake Support
- Traction Control System
- Traffic Sign Recognition
- And More!
That’s a pretty long list of features, so you can rest assured the CX-5 is a safe bet to get you and your loved ones where you need to go without worry. Learn more by contacting Hall Cars in Brookfield!
