2013 Mazda CX-5 Earns “Top Safety Pick” Award from IIHS

Video (03m:00s): 2013 Mazda CX-5

The all-new 2013 Mazda CX-5 has earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) top award for good performance in front, side, rollover, and rear impact evaluations.

The 2013 Mazda 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.

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.

Having manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) started at $20,695, the 2013 Mazda CX-5 was named 2012 Crossover Of The Year by Autobytel and also named “Best Small Utility Vehicle” by MotorWeek.
