Here at Sames Mazda, we strive to deliver the best of the best to drivers in the Laredo, TX area. That’s why as your go-to Mazda dealership, we want to highlight an area of our lineup that’s more important than ever: safety.

Vehicle safety has evolved over the last several years, thanks to emerging automotive technology and a general interest in driving a car that you not only feel comfortable in, but also one that you feel confident in. Luckily, Mazda has your back, designing vehicles like the Mazda CX-5 and 2019 Mazda3.

The first feature we’ll discuss is Dynamic Stability Control (DSC). DSC is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain control under adverse conditions, such as slippery roads or rough terrain.

The next is Driver Attention Alert (DAA). According to Mazda automakers, “Driver Attention Alert is designed to reduce accidents caused by inattentiveness due to driver fatigue. The system … begins to “learn” the driver’s habits, watching inputs and the vehicle’s movements in the early stages before fatigue is a factor. Later, if the system detects changes in vehicle behavior that suggest the driver may be losing concentration, it will suggest a rest stop by sounding a chime and displaying a warning in the Multi-Information Display.”

Finally, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention the i-ACTIV AWD® system. This comprehensive, intuitive system works to keep you in full control of your vehicle no matter what. The system utilizes multiple data points to measure road conditions and driving inputs to determine where to deliver and adjust power accordingly.

The best way to experience the safety features in our Mazda vehicles is through a test drive. Visit our Laredo, TX Mazda dealership today to learn more or to schedule an appointment!
