The 2014 Mazda6 has earned a new “Advanced” rating from the IIHS.
We’ve heard plenty of news about the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety “Top Safety Pick” ratings, but what is this new “Advanced” rating? Well the IIHS has now come up with a new “Advanced” rating for vehicles that are not only safe, but also fun to drive and the 2014 Mazda6 has earned the rating.
The 2014 Mazda6 also earned the “Top Safety Pick+” rating – the first Mazda to earn this new, more demanding designation, by receiving a rating of “Good” on frontal moderate overlap, side, roof and head restraint tests, and “Acceptable” on the new small overlap test.
“The ‘Advanced’ rating from IIHS illustrates Mazda’s continued commitment to developing vehicles that offer not only the highest levels of occupant crash protection, but vehicles that are also fun to drive,” said Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) President and CEO Jim O’Sullivan.
