SAFETY BY DESIGN
A variety of innovative technologies underpin the safety performance of the CX-60. These include Mazda’s Skyactiv Multi-Solution Scalable Architecture, the company’s latest structural and body concept which combines advanced mechanical design with high-strength materials, including 1,800 MPa-grade metals. In addition, a suite of advanced onboard safety systems support drivers and occupants, some of which are Mazda-firsts. These include Smart Brake Support, which uses a forward-sensing camera to help reduce the likelihood of an accident by applying the vehicle’s brakes if needed, and See-Through View, which displays an image on the instrument panel screen that lets the driver effectively see through the front and rear corners of the CX-60 when maneuvering.
Other advanced technologies include Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist and Blind Spot Monitoring.
“The CX-60 is Mazda’s most advanced new model to-date,” said Vinesh Bhindi, Managing Director of Mazda Australia. “Its concentration of design, technology and comfort makes it the ideal premium mid-sized SUV and today’s announcement by ANCAP underlines its impressive safety performance.”
The full five-star ANCAP safety rating awarded to the Mazda CX-60 applies to all variants in the model range, including all petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) variants in both Australia and New Zealand.
