Mazda Drivers and Passengers are Safer than Ever Before!

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

 

Thanks to emerging safety technologies in Mazda vehicles, our drivers and passengers are safer than ever before. Mazda’s goal is to make use of technology to produce vehicles that both help prevent and reduce damages in the event of a collision.

Mazda’s innovative Advanced Safety Technology, Branded i-Activsense makes use of the latest sensing devices such as milliwave radar and cameras to achieve the goal of assisting the driver and vehicle in recognizing hazards, preventing collisions and minimizing damages should an accident occur.

Unlike most other manufactures Mazda does not restrict it’s safety tech to high line expensive models but offers its innovative safety technologies through out it’s vehicle line up. The results of this were just confirmed with The Mazda3, Mazda3 Hatchback, Mazda6, and Mazda CX-5 all receiving the IIHS Highest Safety Ranking –(Top Safety Pick Plus) 

 

Blind Spot Monitoring

On every vehicle, there are obvious or not so obvious blind spots. On your Mazda, the Blind Spot Monitoring checks those areas; and if it detects an object, it will give the driver a visual alert in the mirrors on the outside of the vehicle. If you activate your turn signal in the same blind spot direction the object is detected, the vehicle will beep to alert the driver.

Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS

Swivels headlamps up to 15 degrees in the direction you’re steering, revealing more of the corner.

Mazda Radar Cruise Control

With Mazda’s Radar Cruise Control, the system will determine the difference in distance and speed for the vehicle in front of you. As a result, MRCC will automatically adjust your the speed of your vehicle to ensure a safe speed.

Forward Obstruction Warning

With Forward Obstruction Warning (FOW), the system will effectively monitor the speed of the vehicle in front of you. When there is a high risk of collision, your vehicle will issue audible and visual alerts for you to take evasive action. This system is functional between the speeds of 9 and 92 mph.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert

By using radars on the side of the vehicle, the Rear Cross Traffic Alert (CTA) keeps you informed of objects approaching from the side. In the event an object is detected, you will have both audible and visual warnings of the object in the monitored area.

Lane Departure Warning System

The Lane Departure Warning System effectively monitors the lines on the road. If your vehicle predicts you depart from those lanes unintentionally, the vehicle will issue you a warning.

High Beam Control

High Beam Control is an intuitive system that switches your head lamps between high and low beams based on your driving condition.

Smart City Brake Support (SCBS)

Helps prevent or lessen, low-speed impacts. At speeds of 3-18 MPH, SCBS monitors the vehicle in front to assess the possibility of a collisions. If the system detects a high risk of impact, it applies initial braking pressure to deliver faster response should you brake. If you brake, the system de-activates. If you don’t brake, the brakes are applied automatically.

Mazda Puts Safety First -The Mazda3, Mazda6, and Mazda CX-5 Are All Rated IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus!

Saturday, January 10th, 2015

 

 

GREAT NEWS!
The 2015 Mazda3, Mazda6 and Mazda CX5 all earn the Top Safety Pick “Plus+” Rating by the Insurance Institute For Highway Safety and offer the highest levels of occupant crash protection in their class.

Through years of study The Insurance Institute For Highway Safety has found that rarely are vehicles involved in direct head on collisions. Most often drivers manage to swerve and hit another car or tree on the left front 25% of the vehicle.

Unfortunately most vehicles are ill-equipped to absorb this type of impact. The wheel assembly gets pushed in towards the driver and in turn intrudes into the leg area of the cabin and most often deflects the steering column over. The problem here is that the airbag that deploys from the steering wheel is now moved to the right of the driver, allowing the drivers head to hit the dash, windshield or A-pillar of the car.

Mazda has addressed this by sweeping the crumple zones all the way out toward the fender, rather than coming back directly to the struts. This allows the car to absorb the energy of the 25% overly impact, decreasing the likelihood of injuries.

The Small Overlap Frontal Crash test involves running the car at 40 MPH into a barrier on the left 25% of the vehicle. If the wheel assembly is not forced into the drivers space and the crash test dummy hits the airbag, then the car passes the test. So when you see that a car is “Top Safety Pick Plus”, this is the “Plus” part of the test. The Mazda3, Mazda6, and Mazda CX-5 all pass the test and offered the highest levels of occupant crash protection in their class.

Once Again, The Mazda3 Earns the ALG 2014 Highest Residual Value Award!

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

At Maple Shade and Turnersville Mazda, South Jerseys premier Mazda Dealers. We are excited and proud to share the latest accomplishment of the Mazda3 Sports Sedan and Hatchback! 

For the 2nd year in a row the Mazda3 was determined to have the Highest Residual Value in the Compact Car Segment.

This is a true recognition of the value the Mazda3 offer our customers. ALG the industry authority on vehicle values and depreciation acknowledges Mazda’s commitment to Quality, Value and Economy! ALG has Recognized “the Mazda3 as one of the best all-around vehicles in the Compact segment”. It’s earned itself critical acclaim by topping “Best Car” lists and receiving “Car Of The Year “ nods. 

Mazda as a brand was also just ranked 3rd among all manufactures in vehicle reliability by Consumer Reports. Vehicle Reliability reflects quality and cost of ownership all of which are key factors in determining future value. 

Why Is Residual Value Important? 

Residual value is the projected market or resale value of your vehicle at a given time in the future. ALG, the auto industries authority strives to determine this value through careful study of the competition in each segment, historical vehicle performance and industry trends. Vehicle quality, reliability, production levels relative to demand, and pricing and marketing strategies represent key factors that all impact ALG’s residual value forecasts, or resale value, for the vehicle. 

The  residual value or projected resale value tells the buyer what they can expect as a future return on their vehicle purchase. For example if you purchased a vehicle for $20,000 with a projected resale value of 50% = $10,000 after 3years and maintained it as scheduled for the 3years then the buyer can expect to be able to sell it for $10000.
