Mazda Vehicles Continue to Be Among the Safest on the Road!
Mazda is a manufacturer known for its outstanding dedication to quality and safety. For decades, Mazda vehicles have led the pack in protecting drivers and their loved ones from harm. This enduring commitment is reflected in the recent awarding of a “Top Safety Pick” to Mazda’s latest Mazda6.
The ‘Top Safety Pick’ award, issued by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is awarded to vehicles that earn good ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side roof strength and head restraint tests, as well as a good or acceptable ratings in the passenger-side small overlap front test. An additional advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and a good or acceptable headlight rating is also required to lock in this prestigious award.
Even with these stringent requirements, the 2019 Mazda6 passed with flying colors. Earning ‘good’ ratings in all six IIHS crashworthiness scenarios, the Mazda6 demonstrated outstanding capability. This performance is the result of Mazda’s proprietary i-Activsense safety suite, a comprehensive collection of advanced systems that work in concert to shield occupants from harm.
Features such as Advanced Smart City Brake Support with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alerts and Lane Departure Warning with Lane-Keep Assist ensure the vehicle remains on the road, while options such as Smart Brake Support and Mazda Radar Cruise Control work to maintain optimal distance and avoidance.
With these latest awards, the 2019 Mazda6 joins the exclusive roster of Mazda Top Safety Pick recipients, including the 2019 Mazda3 sedan and hatch, the 2019 CX-3 and 2019 CX-9. In addition to this stellar collection, the related CX-5 has been further elevated to the highest rating of Top Safety Pick+.
Regardless of the vehicle you choose, every Mazda carries with it the legacy and dedication to safety that led to these awards. If security and peace of mind are of concern, look no further than Mazda for your next vehicle.
