All-new Mazda6 scores 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating

The all-new Mazda6 is officially one of the safest cars on the road in Britain after receiving a 5-Star safety rating in the latest Euro NCAP* tests, the highest rating possible. The result endorses Mazda's strategy of enhancing the safety of all its new vehicles by introducing
such innovations as the impact-absorbing Skyactiv-Body technology.

Both the Mazda6 saloon and tourer scored top marks in all four Euro NCAP categories after undergoing several crash tests. The scores achieved by the all-new Mazda6 were adult occupant protection (92 per cent), child occupant protection (77 per cent), and safety assist systems (81 per cent) - comfortably above the 80 per cent, 60 per cent and 65 per cent thresholds in these categories required to collect a 5-Star rating overall. The all-new Mazda6 also scored 66 per cent for pedestrian safety, one the best marks in Europe among vehicles tested this year.

"While the all-new Mazda6 is more powerful and more fuel efficient than ever before, due 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," said Jeremy Thomson, Managing Director, Mazda UK.
