2021 Mazda CX-5 Safety Update

The 2021 Mazda CX-5 is the only small SUV to rank “Good” in a new IIHS Side Impact Preliminary Test

Starting in 2023, The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) will be implementing a more severe version of the current side impact test measured on vehicles today. Side impact collisions are one of the more dangerous occurrences when it comes to vehicles crashes and the IIHS is asking automakers to up their vehicle safety expectations in this category to cut down on fatalities.

The newest side impact test will feature the impact vehicle traveling at a higher rate of speed (37 mph compared to 31 mph) and a new barrier weighing 4,180 pounds (similar to the weight of a midsize SUV). These changes result in 82% more energy involved in the collision.
