When looking for your next sedan, safety is likely an important factor. Along with giving you the peace of mind you deserve, safety features can keep you safe in the event of an unfortunate accident.  If you're looking at safe sedans, the 2021 Mazda3 should be on your list.

To help shoppers from East Stroudsburg, Stroudsburg, Easton, Brodheadsville, and Saylorsville, PA, get a better idea of what safety features the Mazda3 has to offer, Ray Price Mazda has put together this short guide.

Helping Prevent Collisions

On top of airbags and systems, like the Dynamic Stability Control with Traction Control System, Mazda cars have a host of other safety features for both parking and driving. Some of these features fall under Mazda's i-Activsense® safety suite. They are:

  • Standard rearview camera: This camera gives you a view of what is behind you so you can back out of a parking spot or driveway and avoid obstacles.
  • Available Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Smart Brake Support - Rear Crossing: When backing up, this system can detect a vehicle and alert the driver. If needed, it can even apply the brakes.
  • Available Blind Spot Monitoring: When you go to change lanes, this system lets you know if there is a vehicle in your blind spot by using sensors in your rear bumper. If it detects a vehicle, the system will warn you audibly and visually.

Keeping You on the Road and in Your Lane

The Mazda3 has driver-assist features to help you stay in your lane and drive smarter. One feature is the standard Lane Departure Warning System. This system detects lane markings on the road and warns you if you seem to be unintentionally drifting out of your lane.

A feature that works with the Lane Departure Warning System is the Lane-keep Assist System. Once it detects that you are drifting out of your lane, it will provide steering assistance to make sure you stay in your lane.

MAZDA3 IIHS Safety Rating

To give you an idea of how the Mazda3 does in safety tests, we will look at the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) safety ratings. These ratings are based on two kinds of tests: crashworthiness and crash avoidance/mitigation.

The crashworthiness test grades on a lettered scale with G (good) being the best. The crash avoidance/mitigation tests are graded mainly on a scale of basic to superior.

Crashworthiness is about how well the Mazda3 protects you and your passengers during a crash. Crash avoidance and mitigation is how well the Mazda3 avoids or lessens the severity of an accident.

In crashworthiness, the Mazda3 earned a good rating across all tests. It scored superior in the front crash prevention tests in terms of mitigation and crash avoidance.

With these excellent scores, the 2021 Mazda3 has been designated an IIHS 2020 TOP SAFETY PICK+.
