2019 Mazda CX-3 safety features
Smart brake support with collision warning
This feature is a must-have in order for the Mazda CX-3 to qualify as a top safety pick. Only the Grand Touring model comes standard, but it is well worth the upgrade. Whenever a potential collision is detected by the radar sensors at the front of the Mazda CX-3, this system can automatically apply the brakes. Not only can this greatly reduce the damage of a collision, but it can also completely avoid an accident altogether.

Adaptive front lighting
Also available only on the Grand Touring model is adaptive front lighting. This is a system that allows the vehicle’s headlights to swivel when going around dark turns at night. Nighttime driving hinders your visibility, and adaptive front lighting is here to help with just that.
Blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert
As for a safety inclusion that comes on all trim levels, blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert is designed to heighten the driver’s awareness. Whenever a vehicle is in your blind spot or approaching you as you are in reverse, these systems will warn you with audible and visual cues.
Other safety features available on the 2019 Mazda CX-3 include a rearview camera, lane departure warning, radar cruise control, and an active driving display. Come to Tuttle-Click Mazda to learn more about the 2019 Mazda CX-3.
