July 31st, 2020 by

A red 2020 Mazda CX-3 - El Dorado Mazda in McKinney, TX

The 2020 Mazda CX-3, 2020 Mazda CX-5, and 2020 Mazda CX-9 are some of the safest SUVS you can buy for 2020, according to MotorTrend. When evaluating models for this exclusive list, MotorTrend writers considered not only vehicle’s safety systems, but also their IIHS and NHTSA safety ratings. And compared with the other seven models that placed on the list, the three Mazda SUVs, available at El Dorado Mazda in McKinney, Texas, come with lower price tags to sweeten the deal.

2020 Mazda CX-3

MotorTrend commended the Mazda CX-3 for its bounty of standard and available safety features. Each subcompact SUV comes equipped with cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, and automatic emergency braking. Though, you can also add on available tools such as Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop and Go, Adaptive Front-Lighting System, Lane Departure Warning System, and a head-up system for further peace of mind. The NHTSA five-star overall rating and IIHS Top Safety Pick+ rating are two additional feathers in its cap.

2020 Mazda CX-5

The Mazda CX-5 achieves the same NHTSA and IIHS safety ratings as the Mazda CX-3, but offers a bit more space as well as the option of all-wheel drive. Equipped with the brand’s exclusive i-ACTIVSENSE® technology. This means that it includes the following technologies as standard, so you don’t have to pay an extra price to get all of the safety features your family deserves: Adaptive Front-Lighting System, Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane-Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning System, Forward Obstruction Warning, and Mazda Radar Cruise Control.

2020 Mazda CX-9

If you value the plethora of safety technologies that the Mazda CX-3 and Mazda CX-5 offer but need even more room for people and things, go with the Mazda CX-9. This three-row crossover has an NHTSA overall five-star rating, as well as an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ rating for models built after December 2019. It also incorporates the same core of i-ACTIVSENSE® protective tools that its smaller sibling, the Mazda CX-5, has.
