The 2017 Mazda CX-5 Joins The Rest Of The 2017 Mazda Lineup: All Top Safety Pick+ Recipients

Borgman Mazda is pleased to announce that the newly-redesigned 2017 Mazda CX-5 was named as an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) “Top Safety Pick+” for 2017, confirming that it’s one of the safest SUVs you could drive in West Michigan. This is the highest designation for safety given by the IIHS, and the Mazda CX-5 has earned it every year since its launch in 2012.

However, the 2017 Mazda CX-5’s achievement carries some extra weight. Mazda is now the only full-line automaker with every vehicle in their 2017 lineup being rated as an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, and that’s also something Borgman Mazda is incredibly proud of. In this article below, Inside Mazda tells more about the 2017 Mazda CX-5 and the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ designation.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) today announced that its 2017 Mazda CX-5 compact crossover SUV has earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) “Top Safety Pick+” designation, the nonprofit institution’s highest rating. Every 2017 model year Mazda vehicle tested by IIHS has been rated a Top Safety Pick+, when equipped with optional front crash-prevention and specific headlights, leaving Mazda as the only full-line automaker able to make such a claim.

CX-5 has been awarded as a Top Safety Pick every year since its debut in 2012. This marks the fifth-consecutive year as a “Top Safety Pick+” winner. CX-5’s standard Smart City Brake Support and the effectiveness of its standard LED headlights were both instrumental to CX-5 earning top scores in the latest, strictest additions to IIHS’s safety criteria.

“Our Mazda Proactive Safety Philosophy guides us to develop cars and crossover SUVs that are nimble and direct-feeling to help a driver avoid incidents altogether. Our vehicles are designed and engineered to help protect the driver and passengers if a collision happens,” said Masashi Otsuka, VP of research and development, MNAO. “To Mazda, safety is about empowering the driver as much as helping to protect him or her. We’re proud of the accomplishments of the CX-5 development team and appreciative of the IIHS’s recognition.”

To attain “Top Safety Pick+” honors, a vehicle must earn the highest rating of “Good” for 2017 in five crash-worthiness tests; an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating for front crash prevention; and an “Acceptable” or “Good” headlight rating.
