DAYTON, Ohio, March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The all-new 2014 Mazda6 has earned the "Top Safety Pick+" award by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The new 2014 Mazda6 is the first vehicle from Mazda to earn the new designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety by getting a rating of "good" on roof, side, frontal moderate overlap, head restraint tests and "Acceptable" on the new small overlap test.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety introduced the new small overlap test in 2012 to help improve occupant protection in frontal crashes. The small overlap test tries to replicate what happens in an accident when the front corner of a car crashes into another vehicle or an object like a pole or a tree. The test car consists of 25 percent of the car's front end on the driver's side being driven into a 5-foot-tall barrier at 40 mph.
Mazda continues to demonstrate its dedication to making the safest vehicles that deliver the highest levels of occupant safety and crash protection with this "Top Safety Pick+" award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
The 2014 Mazda6 has Mazda's all-new suite of SKYACTIV® technology that has the body and chassis, transmission and engine working together to give you the best fuel efficiency and driving performance.
The new 2014 Mazda6 received the "Top Safety Pick+" from the IIHS with help from its long list of standard safety features that include six airbags, traction control, dynamic stability control, anti-lock brakes, three-point safety belts and daytime running lights.
