Mazda SUV Safety

Mazda is a family-centric automaker that makes it a priority to offer vehicles designed for families of all ages and lifestyles. Traveling through the suburbs is a breeze in the Mazda CX-3, CX-5, and CX-9, but heading into New York City can be cause for concern. That’s why Mazda is packing in more safety features each and every year. Here’s a closer look at some Mazda SUV safety.

The latest addition to Mazda’s safety features comes in the form of Automatic Emergency Braking. The active safety technology will be standard on all new Mazda vehicles by September 2022. The system is currently standard or available on the Mazda CX-3 and CX-5.

Automatic Emergency Braking uses on-board radar and cameras to detect when a crash is imminent. Once a collision is detected, the system warns the drivers and adjusts the brakes for more rapid braking. If the driver fails to respond, the system will apply the brakes on its own.

Mazda SUV safety is growing with more active safety technologies making their way to the road each year. Automatic Emergency Braking improves driver safety by offering the capability to hit the brakes fast to avoid hitting pedestrians and other vehicles.

Federal Crash Test Results

Many consumers put much of their confidence in federal crash tests results. We here at Wantagh Mazda are happy to announce that the Mazda CX-3, CX-5, and CX-9 all earned Top Safety Pick+ Ratings, the highest rating possible, from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

2018 Mazda Updates

The automotive market is always on the move. There is still a lot of 2017 to go, but 2018 is creeping up, and there are already some 2018 models available. Mazda has big plans for its 2018 model year. In fact, the 2018 Mazda updates include an all-new three-row crossover called the CX-8 along with updates for the CX-5 and CX-9.

The CX-8 is bound for the Japanese market and will be shorter and narrower than the large CX-9 model sold here in the United States. We Americans like things a bit bigger, which is why Mazda is just sending the CX-8 to Japan. As for the American 2018 CX-9, it should get a few exterior updates including new LED headlights.

One exciting change for the 2018 CX-5 is the addition of a diesel engine option. This engine promises to deliver a fun-to-drive, fuel-saving experience that experienced drivers should love. Additionally, it should have a sportier, more sculpted exterior design.

Here at Wantagh Mazda, we can’t wait to see what the 2018 Mazda model year will bring. We expect to see some of these models start rolling in as early as this fall. Which 2018 Mazda model are you most looking forward to?

The crossover segment is packed with tons of options, so you might be wondering why you should get the Mazda CX-5. Here’s five awesome reasons why the 2017 CX-5 is the best option.

Less Noisy

Previous generations of the CX-5 were criticized for having a lot of engine noise, and Mazda listened. The 2017 CX-5 is quieter than ever.

Fun to Drive

Mazda’s known for infusing its affordable and practical everyday rides with a little bit of sporty fun, so the 2017 CX-5 adds a little athletic pep to your daily commute.

Backseat Features

Usually the front seats get the most attention, but with available features like USB charging ports and air-conditioning vents, plus tons of space, the rear seat passengers don’t take a backseat to the action.

Updated Technology

From a vehicle information head-up display to a brand-new adaptive cruise control system, the CX-5 is full of new tech.

More Compact

Competitors have been supersized to optimize space, but the CX-5 is versatile and smaller, making it a great city companion on tight streets.

Whether you’re a solo driver or hauling a family, we at Wantagh Mazda think you should get the Mazda CX-5 – it’s affordable, packed with modern amenities, and a fun drive.

September was a great month for Mazda. In fact, Mazda set sales records for both the CX-5 and the Mazda6. Total vehicle sales in the United States were up 6.7 percent over last year with 23,980 vehicles delivered.

“The past two years have seen a September sales month without the Labor Day holiday, which can present a challenge for our dealers, yet we still reported a year-over-year increase,” said Ron Stettner, vice president of sales, MNAO, in a statement. “Sales growth continues to be the product of strong dealer support and SKYACTIV Technology, specifically the quality, fuel efficiency, technology and value found in Mazda3, Mazda6 and CX-5.”

With 4,263 vehicles sold, the Mazda6 had its best September since 2005—a 34.6 percent increase over September 2013 sales. The CX-5 also had a great month, with a 28.9 percent year-over-year jump driven by the 8,097 units sold.

Helping to boost Mazda’s overall sales is its innovative Skyactiv Technology, which boosts performance and fuel efficiency at the same time. More than 84 percent of Mazda vehicles sold in September were equipped with Skyactiv Technology.
