Five Mazda Models Earn 2022 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Awards
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) announced that every Mazda vehicle tested was awarded a Top Safety Pick+ rating.
Top Safety Pick+
To qualify for the 2022 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
- 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.
“Achieving the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Award is a reflection of Mazda’s commitment to providing advanced safety technologies that our owners expect,” said Mazda North American Operations President and CEO Jeff Guyton. “Our wide range of safety technologies are designed to support, not replace the driver, which results in a more confident and enjoyable driving experience.”
Mazda’s CX-5 was the first vehicle to earn a Good rating in IIHS’s new, tougher side impact test, which will be added to the award criteria in 2023. Mazda was proud to add that top achievement to the list of accolades from IIHS.
