A passive car safety feature giving you and your family extra protection
This is the Mazda Advanced Impact Distribution and Absorption System (or MAIDAS, for short). It’s part of the body shell and has shock absorbing crumple zones that spread the impact of a collision. In this way MAIDAS protects the critical interior space of your car – and it’s a car safety feature with an excellent collision performance.
We’ve engineered the Mazda5’s body shell from ultra-high tensile steel, which is light as well as strong. So this car safety feature increases your safety without reducing your car’s agile driving performance.
