Technology Adds to the Driving Pleasure
As a latest model released from a leading manufacturer like Mazda, the 2019 CX-5 Grand Touring could not lag behind any other, when it comes to incorporating the latest technology benefits to attain a smarter driving experience. The controls are mostly console-mounted placed at the center that includes a 7.0-inch infotainment screen with audio controls.
Next comes the way, the driver assisting technologies help the driver manage the road situations both by making him alert and by forgiving his mistakes with alternative automated inputs. The traffic sign recognition option is a new addition we experienced with awe and wonder that broadcasts the upcoming signs through the multi-color Active Driving Display. This automatically maintains road safety by not leaving any chance for the driver to defy the traffic rules or jump any traffic signal. The adaptive front-lighting system, on the other hand adjusts the high and low beams to match the upcoming intended path involving an auto-leveling function, to stabilize the direction of the low beams irrespective of theslopes, potholes or bumps passing beneath the wheels. That ensures, that no CX-5 driver will get any chance to blind the oncoming drivers with their jazzy headlights especially during night time driving.
