How safe is the 2019 Mazda CX-3?
Mazda has built its brand in part by ensuring that all of its new vehicles are equipped with advanced safety features. Don’t take this crossover’s small size as an indictment on its safeness. Check out some of its most notable safety inclusions below.
Smart Brake Support With Collision Warning
When going faster than 10 mph, Smart Brake Support will detect vehicles ahead of you and it will warn you if and when braking is needed. If the system predicts that a collision is imminent, it will automatically apply the brake pads. This is a great example of an active safety feature.
Lane Departure and Blind Spot Warnings
Who couldn’t use a little more awareness? These warning systems keep you in the correct lane and make sure you know who is around you. The Blind Spot Monitoring System will subtly alert you whenever a vehicle enters one of your blind spots. Still keep glancing over your shoulder whenever you turn or change lanes, though!
Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Similar to the blind spot monitor, RCTA will give you audible and visual warnings whenever you back up and an oncoming car is detected. A significant amount of collisions happen in parking lots, and this system aims and reducing that as much as possible.
