The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded every Mazda vehicle tested a Top Safety Pick+ Rating for the second year in a row. The tested vehicles were the Mazda3 Sedan, Mazda3 hatchback, Mazda6, CX-3, CX-30, CX-5, and CX-9.

To qualify for the 2021 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, Mazda vehicles earned good ratings in each of the Institute’s six crashworthiness evaluations:

  • Moderate overlap front
  • Driver-side small overlap front
  • Passenger-side small overlap front
  • Side
  • Roof strength
  • Head restraint tests

Mazda vehicles also earned advanced or superior ratings for front crash prevention in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations and good or acceptable headlight ratings.

“With safety a top priority for Mazda, we are proud to have every Mazda vehicle tested earn the coveted 2021 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ award. This accomplishment stems from our commitment to our owners,” said Mazda North American Operations President Jeff Guyton. “Our customers have come to expect Mazda’s dedication to providing advanced safety technologies paired with dynamic styling, which give them a confident and more enjoyable driving experience.”
