  • Smart City Brake Support – operates between 2 and 18 mph, and warns you when you’re approaching a vehicle too quickly on Lakeside roads.
  • Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring – alerts you when a vehicle enters your blind zone.
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert – notifies you of vehicles approaching from the side as you’re backing out of a parking space.

Both the Mazda and Honda SUV have gotten praise from the automotive experts about their features. In the Mazda CX-5 Edmunds review, you’ll find that the experts liked how the Mazda CX-5’s styling “makes rival midsize SUVs seem generic by comparison.”
