2014 Mazda 6 is a "Top Safety Pick Plus" Family Sedan

By Jeff Youngs, March 13, 2013
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has introduced a new small overlap frontal-impact crash test designed to assess how well a vehicle protects occupants against collisions that impact the left front corner of a vehicle, such as when an oncoming driver wanders across the center lane or the vehicle driver collides with a pole or tree. For vehicles to earn a "Top Safety Pick Plus" rating for 2013, they must get a "Good" or "Acceptable" rating in this new crash test assessment. The 2014 Mazda 6, a redesigned midsize family sedan that went on sale in January of 2013, receives an "Acceptable" rating, earning it a Top Safety Pick Plus rating.

The 2014 Mazda 6 is offered with a number of safety-related technologies for the mid-grade Touring and top-of-the-line Grand Touring models. The 2014 Mazda 6 Touring is equipped with a blind-spot monitoring system and rear cross-traffic alert system. As an option, buyers can add a Smart City Brake Support system to this model. The Smart City Brake Support technology is standard for the Mazda 6 Grand Touring model, and this version of the vehicle is offered with an optional lane-departure warning system and a forward-obstruction warning system.
