Unmatched Safety

Safety should always be the main selling point of any vehicle, but unfortunately, it often goes overlooked or as a second thought. With the Mazda CX-3, safety is a top priority and always will be. Unlike the HR-V, this Mazda comes standard with whiplash-reducing headrests and Smart City Brake Support. The headrests are specifically designed to protect both driver and front passenger from neck or spine injuries in the case they are hit from behind. The Smart City Brake Support utilizes sensors mounted in front of the vehicle to warn the driver of any possible collisions ahead, and can even automatically apply the brakes at full force to reduce the impact or avoid an accident altogether. There are a couple of optional features to consider as well, like the lane departure warning system that alerts the driver when the vehicle starts veering off course, and a cross-path warning system that assists the driver when backing up to avoid other cars when they approach from the side.

Convenience in the Details

It’s the smaller things in life that make life easier, in this case we mean the ergonomic advantages the Mazda CX-3 provides. This crossover offers a remote vehicle starting system so you can cool down the interior before stepping out of the house, and if you share the CX-3 with another driver, you won’t have to worry about re-adjusting the seat position due to the memory seat technology. In the Grand Touring model, you can have your crucial instrument readouts projected in your line of sight by the heads-up display, without having to lose focus from the road. The icing on the cake for ultimate convenience is the CX-3’s light sensors that can detect other vehicles on the road, and turn off the high beams if you accidentally left them on. These adaptive headlights can also illuminate around corners when traveling on winding roads by reading the steering wheel angle and speed. The Honda HR-V doesn’t offer any of these features
