What is your biggest concern when driving? Is safety one of them? Does technology seem to improve your driving skills or distract you more? Mazda engineers have worked hard to improve the safety of their drivers and the hard work is paying off. This year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has named the 2014 Mazda6 with an advanced safety technology rating.
Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) President and CEO Jim O’Sullivan states, “The ‘Advanced’ rating from IIHS illustrates Mazda’s continued commitment to developing vehicles that offer not only the highest levels of occupant crash protection, but vehicles that are also fun to drive.”
Mazda has always been on the forefront of technology and this year it is no different. The innovative 2014 Mazda6 technology is a market first and is named, i-ACTIVSENSE. Tons of radar sensors, cameras and waves are utilized to guide the driver along the road while keeping passengers safe. A few of the features include:
- Blind Spot Monitoring
- Lane Departure Warning System
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
How much does the award winning Mazda6 cost? Even though it has the latest technology, many are surprised at the affordable starting price of $20,990. Not only will safety be covered in this commuter and family friendly vehicle, but the Mazda6 is set at a very competitive market price.
