We have a huge selection of new Mazda cars with advanced safety technology that helps to protect drivers, passengers, and all road users. Let’s check out some of the best safety features in Mazdas 2020 vehicles, and how Yorkdale Dufferin Mazda keeps car buying safe.

i-Activsense Technology

Mazda’s suite of advanced safety technology is known as i-Activsense, which comprises of driver-assist features which make driving more comfortable, less stressful, and safer. Popular new vehicles like the Mazda3 and the CX-5 Crossover SUV are both loaded with i-Activsense features and used Mazda vehicles from recent years have older versions of the technology, which are still very sophisticated.

Blind Spot Monitoring helps drivers know if there’s a vehicle behind them but out of their field of vision. Drivers receive an alert on the appropriate side mirror. Changing lanes on the highway will be effortlessly safer.

Together, Smart Brake Support and Smart City Brake Support scan the road 200 metres ahead for other vehicles or objects. If the vehicle detects there’s a risk of a collision, it braces for a stop, and the brakes are applied automatically if the driver doesn’t take evasive action.

Whether you’re zooming down the open highway or you’re in urban bumper to bumper traffic with multiple kinds of road users, it’s easier to avoid collisions or, at the very least, reduce the severity of impact.
