PRLog - Dec. 17, 2012 - ELK GROVE, Calif. -- The 2013 Mazda CX-5 earned a Top Safety Pick award on Tuesday from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
It joins an elite group of small SUVs, including the 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and Subaru Forester, to earn the designation, said the IIHS.
"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 CX-5 earned "good" ratings in the IIHS's front, side, rollover and rear impact crash tests.
Mazda noted that the CX-5 is its first production vehicle to "receive the full suite of Skyactiv technologies"
The CX-5 gets six standard airbags, antilock brakes, dynamic stability control and traction control.
