When many drivers go out shopping for a new car, they might factor things like design and driving experience into their decision, but one of the most important things to consider is safety. The 2017 Mazda CX-5 is quickly becoming one of Mazda’s best-selling family cars. That’s why Mazda CX-5 safety features have been engineered with the modern family in mind, to provide parents with a practical, affordable ride that protects and provides more security than ever. In fact, the IIHS has named the Mazda CX-5 a Top Safety Pick+.
The IIHS is one of the organizations besides the federal government (the NHTSA) that subjects vehicles to crash tests and other safety tests and rates them based on how they perform. The IIHS found that the Mazda CX-5 not only scored the highest rating of “Good” in every crash test, but also earned a Superior rating for its optional front crash prevention system. Additionally, the crossover’s available LED headlights earned top ratings, too. By meeting all these criteria, the IIHS tacked the extra “+” onto the end of its “Top Safety Pick” title, the top accolade from the organization.
