How the Winners are Awarded
A private nonprofit organization, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is funded by automobile insurance companies and insurance organizations. Its mission is to “reduce losses from motor vehicle crashes.” They do so by reviewing deaths, injuries, and property damage that results from motor vehicle crashes, as well as by researching and reporting on crashworthiness, crash avoidance, and roadway design.
IIHS determines the Top Safety Award winners through several stringent safety crash tests. These tests include a Driver’s Side Small Overlap Front crash test, a Passenger Side Small Overlap Front crash test, a Moderate Overlap Front crash test, a Side Impact crash test, Head Restraints tests, a Front Crash Prevention Systems test, and a Headlight Rating test. The Mazda models were recognized for state-of-the-art and passive safety technologies, as well as advanced safety systems.
All Mazda Vehicles Win
A rare accomplishment, every Mazda vehicle tested was named a winner of IIHS’s 2023 Top Safety Awards. These vehicles include the Mazda3 Sedan, Mazda3 Hatchback, Mazda CX-30, Mazda CX-5, Mazda CX-50 and Mazda CX-9.
Plus, IIHS strengthened the requirements for its TOP SAFETY PICK and TOP SAFETY PICK+ awards for the 2023 program year, demanding better side crash protection, improved pedestrian crash prevention systems and superior headlight performance. This means that the winning Mazda models had to meet even higher standards than ever before and still came out on top. The Mazda CX-5, Mazda CX-9, and Mazda3 all stood out with top, Good ratings for the TOP SAFETY PICK test.
Mazda Reacts to the Awards
Mazda North American Operations President and CEO Jeff Guyton said, “We applaud IIHS for continually raising the bar and pushing the industry to continually improve its crashworthiness and crash avoidance technologies. Safety is a top priority for Mazda and we are proud to have all tested vehicles achieve TOP SAFETY PICK for 2023.”
