The latest Mazda6 has been given the full five stars from the Australian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP), across all the model variants.

ANCAP Chief Executive, James Goodwin, noted that Mazda6 showed strong safety performance across the board, particularly in the adult and child occupant protection segments, where it scored 95 per cent and 91 per cent, respectively.

“Mazda6 achieved maximum points for protection of the driver in the full-width frontal, side impact and oblique pole tests, and maximum points for child occupant protection across dynamic front and side testing,” Goodwin commented.

The sedan comes standard with a bevy of safety tech as standard, including active cruise control with stop/go. The top models add Mazda’s new 360-degree view monitor, offering extra visibility during parking, and a new seven-inch TFT LCD display screen.

Smart city brake support with pedestrian recognition, lane departure warning with lane-keep assist, and adaptive LED headlamps are all standard.

Managing Director of Mazda Australia, Vinesh Bhindi, said “Many of our i-ACTIVSENSE safety technologies are invisible to the driver’s eye. They deliver critical peace of mind for our customers, particularly those investing in a vehicle for their family.”  Click here to view the full review.
