2018 Mazda CX-3 Safety

Mazda has always been at the forefront of technology, design, and performance, and part of the brand's innovative approach is to provide drivers with a safer drive. From the 2018 Mazda CX-3's construction to its powertrain, the popular subcompact crossover is as safe as it is stylish and fun to drive.


There are many different kinds of AWD systems on the road, but Mazda takes AWD technology to the next level. Rain or shine, the i-ACTIV® AWD system utilizes sensors to automatically detect road conditions and adjust power output for improved grip, better traction, and more confident handling. It even predicts when the AWD system will be needed, switching it off during normal, milder drives to conserve fuel in the long run.


The Mazda CX-3 is built from ultra-high tensile-strength steel. What does this mean? Essentially, Mazda's SKYACTIV® technology includes this innovative material to help preserve the CX-3's lightweight, efficient design without sacrificing safety. As a result, the Mazda CX-3 is strong and protective, and it doesn't make any compromises on performance.


The Mazda CX-3 features a full suite of driver assist and alert safety systems engineered for the modern driver. The i-ACTIVSENSE® list of features includes a variety of different technologies such as High Beam Control and Adaptive Front Headlights, which improve visibility by adapting your headlamps to the situation; and Smart Brake Support and a Distance Recognition Support System, which help keep you a safe distance away from other vehicles. Systems such as Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert keep an extra set of "eyes" on the road.

Check out the 2018 Mazda CX-3 at Sierra Mazda and take it for a test spin to experience its confident handling and protective technology up close.
