Two vehicles from the same company were just recognized as a “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for 2013.

Get the details on the latest “safest” cars.

The 2013 Mazda3 and the 2014 Mazda CX-5 were just recognized as a “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).  Both vehicles received the organization’s highest possible crash safety rating of “Good” in all frontal moderate overlap, side, rear impact, and roof strength tests.”

Mazda3, the first vehicle to receive SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY, features SKYACTIV components with its engine and transmissions.  Mazda3 was also named a “Top Safety Pick” for the 2012 model year.

All 2014 CX-5 vehicles feature the full suite SKYACTIV® technologies.  The SKYACTIV-Body and SKYACTIV-Chassis help to contribute to a rigid and quiet ride.  Additionally, both of these design elements also contribute to CX-5’s reinforced structure, which works best to absorb impacts and not transfer that energy to its occupants.
