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.

2015 Mazda CX-5 Is a Safety Super Star

2014 Mazda CX-5The 2015 Mazda CX-5 has earned the highest possible overall five-star safety rating from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The perfect score applies to front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions of the 2015 CX-5.

Although the CX-5 has not yet been rated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, it is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, and had earned “good” scores in all crash tests. At this point, it’s difficult to directly compare vehicles, since federal safety scores are just beginning to be released for 2015 models. According to Edmunds.com, “it should be noted that the 2015 CX-5 already outpaces several competitors in this area, including the 2014 Ford Escape and Toyota RAV4, which earned four-star overall ratings”.

Every CX-5 comes with standard antilock brakes, stability and traction control, daytime running lights, front side airbags, and side curtain airbags. Mazda also provides the option for an automatic crash notification feature.

We take great pride in the safety of our cars. The CX-5 is a car you can feel really confident about loading your most precious cargo, your family, into.  Stop by Steet Ponte Mazda today to test drive a CX-5 and experience top-of-the-line safety for yourself!
