2016 Mazda CX-3 Safety and Crash Ratings
It’s one thing to find a small crossover that is efficient, versatile and fun. You certainly get all that from Mazda’s CX-3 subcompact crossover. But, what about safety? In the end, nothing is more important than that, which is why drivers need to know about the 2016 Mazda CX-3 safety and crash ratings.
Unfortunately, when a vehicle is brand new to the market like the CX-3, it can take some time for crash test results and safety ratings to come out. Although the 2016 CX-3 was released last year, safety ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety have just recently come out.
Impressively, the 2016 Mazda CX-3 was honored with being named a 2016 Top Safety Pick+. This is a top level rating that requires a vehicle to receive the highest possible rating (“Good”) in five different body/structural categories, as well as an advanced rating for available collision prevention technology.
Another important rating when it comes to safety is the one put out by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on safercar.gov. In this instance, it was the CX-3 FWD model that was tested, and the vehicle impressed by receiving a 5-star overall rating.
Although the 2016 model year is coming to a close and the 2017 CX-3 will soon arrive here at the dealership, very little has changed. Therefore, you should be able to still expect exceptional safety from your CX-3, no matter which model year you get. Here are some of the available safety technologies that should give you some peace of mind on the road:
- Blind Spot Monitoring
- Adaptive Front Lighting
- Active Driving (Head-Up) Display
In addition to the above features, those who opt for the CX-3 Grand Touring trim can also get the i-ACTIVSENSE package for the following:
- Mazda Radar Cruise Control
- Smart and Smart City Brake Support (automatic emergency braking)
- Lane Departure Warning
- Rain-sensing windshield wipers
- High Beam Control
