Medical professionals who are looking for a new vehicle often list safety as their number one consideration, because they have their own families and have often witnessed firsthand in the ER the dangers of driving in unsafe vehicles. Nurses who visit multiple patients at their homes each day want something efficient and with enough cargo space for transporting medical equipment while nurses at hospitals want something that is easy to park in the tight spaces in the garage, like a Mazda vehicle. We recommend the Mazda3 Sedan, Mazda3 Hatchback and Mazda CX-5.
The Mazda3 Sedan gets impressive fuel economy at up to 35 mpg on the highway.1 It’s also compact, so parking the Mazda3 is easy. Nurses who work long shifts and need to contact their families on their drives to and from work will appreciate available Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® integration, but most important are the available safety features like Blind Spot Monitoring, Smart Brake Support and the Lane Departure Warning System.
The Mazda3 Hatchback is just as efficient as its sedan sibling, earning up to 35 mpg on the highway.2 Likewise, its compact size makes it easy to park. As an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick, the Mazda3 Hatchback is also available with a wide range of i-Activesense® safety features, including Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go. Standard safety features include Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Smart Brake Support, High Beam Control, the Lane Departure Warning System and Lane-Keep Assist.
The Mazda CX-5 is ideal for nurses who need the space to transport medical equipment and their own families. In total, the Mazda CX-5 offers up to 59.6 cubic feet of cargo space. When equipped with the available Adaptive Front-lighting System, the Mazda CX-5 is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ and is available with Advanced Smart City Brake Support with Pedestrian Detection.
