The new 2018 Mazda6 has been awarded the maximum five-star rating by Euro NCAP in its new, more stringent latest series of tests.

01 Nov 2018 | International News : Germany

Key to the new Mazda6's success is an increase in the rigidity of its impact-absorbing yet lightweight Skyactiv-Body architecture, an even wider range of advanced i-Activsense safety technologies to help drivers identify potential risks and reduce the likelihood of damage or injury, and an improved pedestrian protection performance.

The new Mazda6's Adult Occupation score improved by 3% to an exceptional 95%, with maximum points scored for frontal impacts with a stationary car, and both side barrier and side pole impacts. The Child Occupant score rose by a significant 14% to 91%, with maximum points scored in both frontal and lateral impact categories. A creditable 66% in Vulnerable Road User (pedestrian safety) matches that of the outgoing model, with the new Mazda6 scoring an impressive 73% in the Safety Assist category.

Building on an already substantial spread of i-Activsense safety features, the 2018 Mazda6 features an updated Mazda Cruise Control, an improved Adaptive LED Headlamps array, an Intelligent Speed Assist system, Mazda's auto-hold function and a 360-degree View Monitor. Pedestrian protection performance has also been enhanced by the adoption of an active bonnet design.
