With the SKYACTIV®-Body, SKYACTIV®-Chassis and intuitive safety technologies, the CX-5 is built to protect. High tensile steel reinforcements and additional spot welds increase rigidity while side-impact door beams and Ring Structure distribute energy to help make the cabin even stronger. Six standard airbags,††† including advanced front and front side-impact airbags, and fast-inflating air curtains, help protect the driver and passengers in the event of a collision. In the event of an accident that activates the fuel cutoff, the available E911 notification system will automatically dial out to 911 via a paired Bluetooth®-enabled mobile phone to alert emergency personnel of your location.
Blind Spot Monitoring
You can't always see every car on the road, so the available class-leading Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) System‡‡‡ is here to help. It uses motion-detecting technology to scan your blind spots. If it detects a vehicle in your blind spot when you activate a turn signal, it sounds a warning chime and illuminates an icon in the corresponding side-view mirror.
