Mazda CX-5 'automatically prevents crashes'
28 February 2012
The automatic ability to avoid accidents comes as standard on the new Mazda CX-5.
Drivers will find that when they are travelling at low speeds (less than 20 mph) the car's Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) will help them avoid a collision.
The system works by activating a laser-guided sensor which is positioned on the top of the CX-5's widescreen. This allows the vehicle's onboard systems to monitor the distance between the car in front and compares that against the Mazda's speed.
If a collision is imminent, the system will pre-pressurise the brakes, meaning the car will come to a halt quicker when the driver presses the pedal. If the brake is not applied, the system will then automatically bring the car to a halt.
Families who want to get their hands on the latest advances such as SCBS could try car leasing.
Hiring vehicles allows motorist to easily stay adrift of the latest advancements in the industry.
