Euro NCAP is praising Mazda CX-5 for its safety systems image

The European car safety organization is highlighting the Mazda CX-5 once again for its standard safety systems.

After it was tested by Euro NCAP earlier this year, the new Mazda CX-5 is once again being placed into the spotlights by the same organization for its standard safety systems. Mazda is coming with Autonomous Emergency Braking, which first alerts the driver and then brakes for the driver if he/she fails to react to an obstacle. Besides this, the Mazda CX-5 is also coming with the “classic” ABS And EBD, but the AEB system mentioned above is the most praised, being able to reduce accidents by up to 27 percent.

The Mazda CX-5 has received a five-star rating from Euro NCAP, with 94 percent for adult occupant protection, 87 percent for child occupant protection, 64 percent in pedestrian safety and 86 percent for its safety assist systems. The scores in each category were determined based on several crash tests, including a 40 km/h simulated pedestrian impact, a 29 km/h pole side impact, a 50 km/h side barrier impact and a 64 km/h frontal impact. The new CX-5 is the third Mazda vehicle to earn the five-star rating from Euro NCAP after the Euro-spec Mazda6 and the Mazda3.
