The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), one of the reference institutions in the automotive industry, awarded Mazda's compact SUV representative CX-20 with the highest score in the new side crash tests involving 5 different brands and models. Despite the fact that the barrier weight was increased from 1500 kg to 1900 kg and the collision speed was increased from 50 km / h to 60 km / h in the new test process, the collision energy was increased by 82 percent, the Mazda CX-5 is the only one of the 20 models to have successfully passed the test. became a car.
Known for its rigorous safety tests suitable for real driving conditions, the US institute Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has recently subjected SUV representatives of 20 different brands and models in the compact class to side crash tests. In the tests carried out for the first time in more severe conditions than the previous test program, the Mazda CX-5 was the only car to receive a passing grade, as the only car to receive the highest possible score.
Chassis showed extremely high resistance to collision
In the new side crash tests, the barrier weight was increased from 82 kg to 1500 kg, and the collision speed was increased from 1900 km/h to 50 km/h, increasing the energy released by 60 percent. In addition, the design of the barrier that will hit the B-pillar has been reshaped to reflect the front design of modern SUVs and pickup trucks.
After the tests, IIHS experts said, “Our best performing test car was the CX-5. While the chassis of the compact SUV is extremely resistant to lateral impact, the airbags did their job very well, protecting the heads of the test dummy driver and passengers. We observed very minor deformations in the habitat; which means minor injuries in possible accident scenarios. This is how we want to see the safety performance of all cars in the future.” said. After Mazda3, Mazda6, Mazda CX-3 and Mazda CX-30, which was awarded the title of TOP SAFETY PICK+, the highest score of IIHS, a completely independent organization, this year, the CX-5 also held the same title. kazanit's gone.
A series of tech doping is coming to the CX-2022 in 5
A more advanced version of the tested car, which will meet the roads next year, the new CX-5 will feature a series of innovative i-Activsense safety assistants. Thanks to the new CTS technology, the compact SUV, which will provide a more peaceful driving experience by taking the gas, brake and steering control from the driver in congested traffic, will also have updated adaptive LED headlights that will provide a sharper vision. In addition, the Mi-Drive system, which allows switching to different driving modes with one touch, will also be available in the new model.
