The Mazda CX9 is packed with safety features like 6 airbags – In the event of a collision, Mazda vehicles are equipped with a Supplementary Restraint System (SRS) whereby multiple airbags are deployed to reduce the risk of serious injury to the head and upper torso of the vehicle occupants, two in the front, two on the sides and curtain airbags make up the six, ensuring occupant injury is minimised in the event of a collision. Anti-lock braking system (ABS) prevents wheel lock-up and consequent sliding under heavy braking or on slippery road surfaces, Dynamic Stability Control, or DSC, uses the speed sensors on each wheel and the ability to brake individual wheels that are the basis of antilock brakes, Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) monitors brake pedal force and input speed to determine when emergency braking is occurring. When detected, it automatically applies maximum braking force to all wheels. This reduces stopping distances during emergency braking. It works in conjunction with the ABS to also provide maximum steering control in these situations. Other safety features include Automatic door lock, 2 ISOFIX child restraint anchors, daytime running lights, electric parking brake, front and rear parking sensors, seatbelt warning and 5-star ANCAP safety rating for your peace of mind.
