    "Achieving the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award is a reflection of Mazda’s commitment to providing advanced safety technologies that our owners expect. Our wide range of safety technologies are designed to support, not replace the driver, which results in a more confident and enjoyable driving experience,” said Mazda North American Operations President and CEO Jeff Guyton.

    To earn a Top Safety Pick+ award, the evaluated vehicles must have Good ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, original side, roof strength, and head restraint tests; Advanced or Superior rating for available front crash prevention — vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations; and Acceptable or Good headlights.

    Mazda’s 2022 vehicles earned Good ratings in each of the Institute’s six crashworthiness evaluations and earned advanced or superior ratings for front crash prevention in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations and either Good or Acceptable headlight ratings.

    Other brands with models earning a Top Safety Pick+ award include Honda, Subaru, Kia, Nissan, Toyota, BMW, Volvo, Tesla, Audi, Ford, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Hyundai, Cadillac, and Mitsubishi.
