Mazda 3 Safety

Mazda 3 A Top Safety Pick

The Insurance Institute For Highway Safety (IIHS) has awarded its highest honor of Top Safety Pick to the 2011 Mazda 3 sedan and hatchback. To earn the award the 3 had to score ‘good’ on front, side, and rear impact crash tests, in addition to scoring ‘good’ for roof strength.

Mazda’s commitment to safety has led the company to make many safety features standard, including six airbags, anti-lock brakes, Dynamic Stability Control with Traction Control System, front and rear stabilizer bars, a crushable brake and accelerator pedal, a collapsible steering column, three-point safety belts for all occupants, and front seatbelt pretensioners with force limiters.

With its myriad safety components, it is easy to see how Mazda scored so well on the IIHS tests. Hopefully, 2011 will be the start of a long line of Top Safety Picks for the company. Why not check out Mazda 3 financing deals in your area?
