2019 Mazda CX-5 earns special award from IIHS

Posted on 22 February, 2019

Mazda North American Operation (MNAO) announced that 2019 Mazda CX-5 compact crossover SUV has earned Insurance Institute for High Safety (IIHS) advanced rating for its automatic emergency braking systems. As you might know, this is the second highest rating from the nonprofit institution.

2019 CX-5 itself is a host to numerous technological features that aid vehicle’s comfort, utility and of course, safety features. In fact, CX-5 is one of the five machines that has earned the advanced rating under IIHS’s new and more demanding rules and requirements.

What makes Mazda’s model so trustworthy, is the incorporating on Smart City Brake Support and 360-degree View Monitor, all along with this advanced automatic emergency braking system.

In fact, the pedestrian autobrake test is the fourth crash avoidance evaluation in the institute’s lineup of examinations. This program sorts vehicles as basic, advanced and superior, based on their ability to avoid and mitigate a crash with pedestrian dummies in three different test track scenarios at different speeds and conditions. And here’s where CX-5 shines – it has almost avoided and in some cases completely avoided striking pedestrian dummies.

IIHS, remaining an independent non-governmental safety-testing organization, is one of the most prominent organizations that evaluate vehicle’s value, based on strict parameters – mainly active and passive safety technologies, along with convenience and utility features.
