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.
