PRLog - Mar. 21, 2012 - FRANKLIN, Tenn. -- The CX-5, an all-new small SUV, earns the Institute's top award for good performance in front, side, rollover, and rear impact evaluations.
The CX-5 is the second Mazda to qualify since the Institute made the criteria for earning the award tougher in 2010 by requiring good performance in a roof strength test that assesses rollover protection. The other model is the Mazda 3, a small car.
To measure roof strength, a metal plate is pushed against one corner of a vehicle's roof at a constant speed. The maximum force sustained by the roof before 5 inches of crush is compared to the vehicle's weight to find the strength-to-weight ratio. This is a good assessment of vehicle structural protection in rollover crashes.
The roof of the CX-5 withstood a force equal to 5.47 times the vehicle's weight. Vehicles with a strength-to-weight ratio of 4 or better earn a good rating.

All CX-5s are equipped with the all-new SKYACTIV-Body and all-new SKYACTIV-Chassis, which ensure a vehicle structure as reinforced and quiet as it is rigid and absorbs impacts. The SKYACTIV-Chassis weighs less than current Mazda platforms and includes a front strut suspension and a multi-link rear format along with an assortment of design changes. The SKYACTIV-Body is comprised of 61 percent high-tensile steel, creating a lighter, stronger body with superior handling. The all-new CX-5 also is the first production vehicle to utilize 1,800MPa ultra-high tensile steel, which are utilized in the front and rear bumper beams and results in parts that are 20 percent stronger and 10.6 pounds lighter than previous generation bumpers.

Other standard safety equipment includes six airbags (front, side and full side-curtain), four wheel disk brakes, anti-lock brakes (ABS), daytime running lights (DRL), Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), a Traction Control System (TCS), a fold-away brake pedal assembly, front and rear crumple zones, three-point safety belts for all seating positions, front seatbelt pretensioners, Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) and a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS).
