Mazda CX-5 wins Scottish Car of the Year safety award

Mazda's ground-breaking Mazda CX-5 crossover has shared the 2012 Safety Award in the annual Scottish Car of the Year ceremony.

Mazda won for its Smart City Brake Support system, which is standard-fit across the Mazda CX-5 range,  while Volvo won for its pedestrian
airbag on its V40. The 16 judges, members of the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers (ASMW), were split, eight voting for each car.

"The advances in active and passive safety features have been huge in recent years and features being offered by two car brands were particularly liked by the judges. In the end the jury was split and as a result the 2012 Safety accolade goes to two deserving joint winners," said ASMW President John Murdoch.
