The all-new model, the Mazda CX-60, received the maximum five-star rating from EuroNCAP in the latest series of tests conducted by the organization. The Japanese SUV scored 91% in the child passenger category, and 88% in the adult passenger category.

An impressive result of 89% was also achieved in the category for unprotected road users (pedestrians, cyclists...).

The Mazda CX-60 achieved the maximum number of points in the 6- and 10-year-old category for performance in the crash test, both for frontal and side collisions.

In tests for child passengers, the correct installation of child seats also received high marks, leading to an excellent combined score of 91%.

With high scores in side crash tests and a good level of protection recognized in the full-width rigid barrier test, it also achieved a significant score of 88% in adult occupants.

In both the side barrier and the – more severe – side pillar impact, the protection of all critical body parts was good, leading to the maximum score in this segment of the assessment.

The Mazda CX-60 scored an impressive 89% in the category of vulnerable road users. The adequate performance of the intelligent automatic braking system (AEB) made the result one of the best so far for all tested vehicles since the last EuroNCAP ratings.

The all-new large SUV joins the likes of the Mazda CX-5 (2017), Mazda 6 (2018), Mazda 3 and Mazda CX-30 (both 2019), as well as the Mazda MX-30 (2020) in getting the maximum five star in the EuroNCAP test.

The Mazda CX-60 achieved an impressive result in the fourth category of the EuroNCAP test: safety systems, where it recorded a score of 76%.

The five-star rating is contributed by the adaptable Skyactiv architecture on which the CX-60 is based (Skyactiv Multi-Solution Scalable Architecture).

The wide range of the company's advanced i-Activsense driver support safety technologies that the vehicle is equipped with play another key role in achieving this rating.

New technologies, including Turn Across Traffic Assist, SBS-R pedestrian detection and BSM Vehicle Exit Warning, which detects vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists approaching from the rear of the vehicle (BSM Vehicle Exit Warning), they help drivers recognize potential risks and reduce the likelihood of damage or injury, while offering high standards of pedestrian protection.

In addition, Mazda's Kinematic Posture Control (KPC) system additionally stabilizes the vehicle while in motion, facilitating safe driving, and these functions further reduce the possibility of an accident, the Japanese manufacturer explains.
