The 2021 Mazda CX-5 Helps Kelowna Drivers Avoid Accidents with Blind-Spot Monitoring

(Posted on Feb 18, 2021 at 03:04PM by Josh Lew)
2021 mazda cx-5 for sale in kelowna bcThe 2021 Mazda CX-5 offers blind-spot monitoring (BSM) and rear cross-traffic alert (RCTA) to Kelowna drivers. These safety features are standard on all trims, so you do not have to upgrade to get protection. 

Blind-spot monitoring has radar sensors to detect vehicles traveling to the right or left behind the Mazda CX-5 at a rate of more than 30 km/h. A signal lights up on the power-adjustable mirrors to indicate the presence of another car. An audible beep sounds if you attempt to change lanes at this time. RCTA uses the same detectors as BSM to locate oncoming traffic as you reverse out of a parking space or driveway. It also relies on icon and audio alerts. 

What about frontal collisions? All Mazda CX-5 trims have Smart City Brake Support, which uses forward radar to detect vehicles and send alerts when you get too close. A high-speed version of this accident avoidance tool is available on all models except the base GX.
