The all new Mazda CX-5 arrives this spring and comes equipped with a range of breakthrough technologies. The technology includes the debut of safety features such as Smart City Brake Support, state-of-the-art passive safety structures, such as the lightweight yet highly-rigid SKYACTIV-Body and various impact-absorbing structural innovations.
The technology, which is standard across the Mazda CX-5 range, uses a laser sensor mounted at the top of the windscreen to detect a vehicle or obstacle in front of the CX-5, when driving at speeds between 2.5 and 20mph. If the driver fails to slow his/her vehicle appropriately, or to take avoiding action, SCBS automatically activates the brakes and reduces the engine output at the same time.
Other standard safety equipment highlights on the Mazda CX-5 include front and rear parking sensors, Dynamic Stability Control with Traction Control System, Hill Hold Assist, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, dual front and front side airbags and front and rear curtain airbags; driver, passenger and rear-seat audible seatbelt reminder warning and a reversing camera.
