Not surprisingly, since all the cars are made to the same spec in Japan, the new Mazda6 was found by Euro NCAP to be just as safe as it was in the US when the IIHS tested it.
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.
