Mazda CX-5
Mazda CX-5
  • MSRP: $21,395
  • Safety rating: 2014 top safety pick +
  • Estimated mpg:
    • City - 26
    • Highway - 35

The Mazda CX-5 is one of three small sport utility vehicles to be chosen by the IIHS as a top safety pick + and only one of 39 vehicles to be named to the institute's list of safe cars in 2014.

It comes standard with front-impact air bags, side-impact air bags and advanced front air bags as well as side-impact air curtains for front and rear outboard passengers.

Driving should be less worrisome with dynamic stability control, traction control, blind-spot monitoring, anti-lock brakes and a Smart City Brake Support system.

This small SUV is built for your protection with side-impact door beams, unibody construction and a collapsible steering column.

On some models, an emergency 911 automatic notification system comes as part of a package. This system dials 911 via a paired Bluetooth-enabled phone in the CX-5 when there's an accident and air bags deploy.
