Every 2021 Mazda Model Earns IIHS Top Safety Pick+

New Mazda Lineup | Wantagh, NY

Every model in the 2021 Mazda lineup has earned an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award, including the Mazda3 Sedan, Mazda3 Hatchback, Mazda6, Mazda CX-3, Mazda CX-30, Mazda CX-5, and Mazda CX-9.

The Top Safety Pick+ award is the highest safety honor granted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, one highly coveted by all manufacturers. Many brands do not manage to earn even the standard TSP award for all of their models, least of all the more difficult TSP+ award.

In fact, Mazda is one of only two brands to have managed this impressive feat, and the only non-luxury brand to do so. To do it, all of its models had to earn the maximum safety rating in six crashworthiness evaluations ranging from moderate overlap front crash tests to head restraint tests. In other words, Mazda vehicles not only deliver awesome performance, flexibility, and interiors on par with luxury brands, but also top-notch safety.

It doesn’t stop there. To get a TSP+ award, vehicles also needed to earn an advanced or superior rating for both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian crash avoidance. Every single Mazda model earned the top superior rating for the former, and three out of seven also earned the top superior rating for the latter.

Finally, to earn a TSP+ award rather than just a TSP award, the Mazda lineup needed to be offered with standard headlights that provide good or acceptable visibility.

In summary, if you’re looking to shop for a premium-feeling brand that provides excellent value and style along with industry-leading safety regardless of the model you buy, take a look at the 2021 Mazda model lineup at Wantagh Mazda in Wantagh, New York. We have the 2021 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award-winning lineup in stock and ready to lease.

Mazda Named U.S. News’ Best Car Brand

2018 Mazda CX-5 Front View

Every year, U.S. News releases a list of the best auto brands on the market, giving consumers the low-down on what the best options in the industry are. This year, the number one spot for the Best Car Brand went to Mazda.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to people who have been reading the list every year. Mazda has been the winner for the past three years in a row, proving that quality outdoes quantity every time. U.S. News even mentions Mazda’s relatively small lineup is “comprised of top-notch vehicles,” going on to praise the brand for its unparalleled driving dynamics for a low price.

The three Mazda vehicles U.S. News cites as major factors in the publication’s decision-making process include the compact Mazda3, the Mazda6 midsize sedan, and, of course, the popular MX-5 Miata sports car. It’s a diverse pool of top picks. The Mazda3 now comes in sedan and hatchback variants with a fun driving performance and a luxe cabin, while the family-friendly Mazda6 has a long list of standard features including blind-spot monitoring and an 8-inch touchscreen. And, of course, the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata delivers high value, a fun driving experience, and amazing fuel economy as usual.

Having such a long list of award-winning, reputable vehicles for low price tags, it’s no wonder Mazda is U.S. News’ Best Car Brand of 2019. Here at Wantagh Mazda, we are proud to carry such an incredible car brand.
