When we’re talking about all the great features in Mazda vehicles, it can be easy to overlook safety amenities. After all, safety isn’t the most flashy thing on a new vehicle, but an innovative safety feature can be the difference between an accident and safe driving. Mazda is an automaker that has always taken safety and security seriously, constantly innovating with new ideas and systems. In fact, the Mazda CX-5 was just named as an IIHS Top Safety Pick, a reflection of the Mazda dedication to safety, and it's available to test drive today at Heritage Mazda Catonsville.

Mazda CX-5 Safety

The IIHS is the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and every year, it names its Top Safety Pick Vehicles. According to the IIHS, “These awards identify the best vehicle choices for safety within size categories during a given year." Larger, heavier vehicles generally afford more protection than smaller, lighter ones. Thus, a small car that qualifies for an award might not protect its occupants as well as a bigger vehicle that doesn’t earn the award. The Mazda CX-5 was named as a Top Safety Pick Plus in the Small SUVs category.  

A major reason why the Mazda CX-5 was awarded with this designation was the suite of standard i-Activsense® safety features, which are ingenious technologies that help alert you to potential hazards. For instance, Blind Spot Monitoring helps detect objects in your blind spots and alerts you with a chime and warning light in the corresponding side mirror and in the available Active Driving Display. Meanwhile, Rear Cross Traffic Alert detects vehicles in your path as you reverse using 360-degree cameras.
