The New Mazda CX-5 SUV’s Safety Equipment

2017 Mazda CX-5

You can’t put a price on safety; however, if you could, it might look something like the 2017 Mazda CX-5’s starting MSRP of $24,045. Equipped with a full range of passive and active safety features, the CX-5 supplements its excellent performance, efficiency, and comfort with driver and passenger reassurance. Of course, the CX-5 doesn’t stop there; its variety of optional driver assists help you stay aware of your surroundings and avoid common driving mistakes. Read on for more on the Mazda CX-5’s incredible safety features!

Standard Features

Every 2017 Mazda CX-5—Sport, Touring, or Grand Touring—comes standard with the latest and most reliable safety features. From keyless entry, to speed-sensitive power door locks, to Brake Assist, the CX-5 leaves no stone unturned. Check out a few highlights from its standard safety arsenal:

  • LED Headlights: The CX-5’s LED headlights consume very little energy, while illuminating the roads ahead with a warmer and brighter light than halogen bulbs and HIDs can provide.
  • Rearview Camera: Accessible via the standard 7-inch display, the rearview camera powers on when the CX-5 is put into Reverse. This helpful feature lets you grab tight parking spaces with ease.
  • Smart City Brake Support: On busy Modesto streets, Smart City Brake Support watches out for probable frontal collisions, and can apply the brakes if you’re unable to do so in time.
  • E911: Included as part of the MAZDA CONNECT Infotainment System, the E911 automatic emergency notification can summon assistance should an accident occur.

Available i-ACTIVSENSE® Package

There’s seemingly no end to the new Mazda CX-5’s commitment to driver and passenger safety, especially when you consider its available driver-assistive systems. The fully loaded i-ACTIVSENSE® Package, for example, is optional for the mid-level Touring and standard for the top-tier Grand Touring. A few of the i-ACTIVSENSE® Package’s features include:

  • High Beam Control: During nighttime drives, High Beam Control alternates between low and high beams according to road and traffic conditions.
  • Lane Departure Warning: Working in tandem with Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning notifies you of accidental lane drift at speeds of 37 mph or above.
  • Rain-Sensing Wipers: Available rain-sensing windshield wipers auto-adjust their intermittent frequencies to suit heavy rains or light drizzles.
