CX-5 vs. CR-V: Safety Features

Honda Sensing is one of the brand’s most noteworthy technologies. It’s a bundle of intelligent driver assist features, such as lane departure warning and collision warning with automatic braking. However, it’s not offered on the 2019 Honda CR-V LX. To get these features on the Honda, you’ll need to spend a bit more for a higher trim level. The Mazda CX-5 includes the following as standard equipment on the base model:

  • Smart City Brake Support – operates between 2 and 18 mph, and warns you when you’re approaching a vehicle too quickly on Lackawanna roads.
  • Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring – alerts you when a vehicle enters your blind zone.
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert – notifies you of vehicles approaching from the side as you’re backing out of a parking space.
