Mazda CX-60 Interior Details
In the top trim levels, the CX-60 is equipped with a system for automatically activating seat and steering wheel presets. It works through a video camera directed into the passenger compartment, recognizes a specific driver by the eyes, and adjusts the position of the “steering wheel” and the seat for him in accordance with the previously entered settings. In total, the system “remembers” up to six people.
The same camera monitors the driver’s condition; if the system recognizes that he has fallen asleep or lost consciousness, sound and visual signals will be given. Did not help? Then the car will automatically slow down, stop on the side of the road and call emergency services.
