2020 Mazda6 Console

There’s a lot to consider when you choose a new vehicle — but for many Jackson car-buyers, safety is paramount. Your best resources for accurate, comprehensive safety vehicle safety ratings are the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. So how do Mazda safety ratings compare to other brands? If you’re in the market for a mid-size sedan, the 5-star Mazda6 overall NHTSA safety rating should provide peace of mind on the road in Madison! Read on for the full range of 2020 Mazda6 safety ratings from the NHTSA and the IIHS, plus details on the safety features that make the Mazda6 a top safety pick.

MAZDA6 Overall NHTSA Safety Rating

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration performs multiple crash tests on new vehicles and then awards safety ratings on a 5-star scale. If the 5-star Mazda6 overall NHTSA safety rating is any indication, Mazda6 safety scores are high across the board:

NHTSA MAZDA6 Safety Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

  • Overall Rating
  • Frontal Crash Test
  • Side Crash Test

IIHS Crash Test: MAZDA6 Safety Rating Results

Now that you know all about Mazda safety ratings, you won’t be surprised to learn that the Mazda6 is one of only 64 vehicles awarded a Top Safety Pick designation from the IIHS in 2020. Six crash tests factor into the overall Mazda safety rating: moderate overlap front, driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, and side crash. Further tests determine how well the seats, head restraints, and roof stand will hold up in a crash. Check out the IIHS Mazda safety results for the Mazda6 sedan:
