Whether you’re a parent driver, a new driver, a senior driver, or any driver… vehicle safety is crucial. At least it is for us, at Auto Express Mazda. Here in Erie Pennsylvania the weather conditions fluctuate often. And they are less than ideal for many months at a time. That’s why it’s important to have a vehicle that can handle and adapt to changing conditions such as freezing rain, snow, sleet, and ice.
At Auto Express Mazda, we take pride in the Mazda safety features that have earned us numerous accolades over the years.
In fact, as of March 2020, Mazda had earned MORE IIHS TOP SAFETY PICKs THAN ANY OTHER MANUFACTURER. For example, the 2020 Mazda CX-3, CX-5, Mazda6 and Mazda3 Sedan and Hatchback were all named a Top Safety Pick+, the IIHS’s highest safety award. The Mazda CX-9 models built after December 2019 were are also an IIHS Top Safety Pick+.
There are a few features that we at Auto Express Mazda feel are especially noteworthy. In our opinion, these are what make Mazda vehicles a top safety contender.
The first is i-Activ AWD®. This helps you drive confidently in the snow and rain using innovative technology that helps predict traction loss and send torque to the tires that can use it best. It works in tandem with G-Vectoring Control Plus making precise adjustments to deliver a smoother, more consistent, driving experience. And when your destination takes you off the beaten path, simply press the Off-road Traction Assist control button. Engaging this feature will help optimize torque distribution and traction control to help you traverse uneven terrain.
Most Mazda vehicles also offer other available safety features, such as:
- Blind Spot Monitoring
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go
- Smart Brake Support
- High Beam Control
- Lane Departure Warning System
- Lane-keep Assist
- Driver Attention Alert
- Adaptive Front-lighting System
As you can see, Mazda vehicles are not just “image vehicles.” Their quality craftsmanship and luxurious design are just added benefits to the confidence you have while on the road.
