New Mazda6 Receives 5-Star Euro NCAP Safety Rating [Video]
Both the salloon and tourer have received the top 5-star rating from this independent European safety body, this despite the more stringent crash test requirements, which have included for the first time a 40% small overlap in the frontal collision.
The scores achieved by the all-new Mazda6 were adult occupant protection (92%), child occupant protection (77%), and safety assist systems (81%).
“While the all-new Mazda6 is more powerful and more fuel efficient than ever before, thanks to its SKYACTIV technology, it is also lighter and stronger, featuring ultra-high tensile steel and other innovations which reinforce the body’s structures and its passive safety performance. This is underpinned by our range of driver-supporting active safety technology which helps prevent accidents in the first place and reduce their severity should one be unavoidable,” comments Jeremy Thomson, Managing Director, Mazda UK.
