The 2015 Mazda3, Mazda6 and Mazda CX5 all earn the Top Safety Pick “Plus+” Rating by the Insurance Institute For Highway Safety and offer the highest levels of occupant crash protection in their class.
Through years of study The Insurance Institute For Highway Safety has found that rarely are vehicles involved in direct head on collisions. Most often drivers manage to swerve and hit another car or tree on the left front 25% of the vehicle.
Unfortunately most vehicles are ill-equipped to absorb this type of impact. The wheel assembly gets pushed in towards the driver and in turn intrudes into the leg area of the cabin and most often deflects the steering column over. The problem here is that the airbag that deploys from the steering wheel is now moved to the right of the driver, allowing the drivers head to hit the dash, windshield or A-pillar of the car.
Mazda has addressed this by sweeping the crumple zones all the way out toward the fender, rather than coming back directly to the struts. This allows the car to absorb the energy of the 25% overly impact, decreasing the likelihood of injuries.
The Small Overlap Frontal Crash test involves running the car at 40 MPH into a barrier on the left 25% of the vehicle. If the wheel assembly is not forced into the drivers space and the crash test dummy hits the airbag, then the car passes the test. So when you see that a car is “Top Safety Pick Plus”, this is the “Plus” part of the test. The Mazda3, Mazda6, and Mazda CX-5 all pass the test and offered the highest levels of occupant crash protection in their class.
Another Big Win For MAZDA!

For the 2nd year in a row the Mazda3 was determined to have the Highest Residual Value in the Compact Car Segment.
This is a true recognition of the value the Mazda3 offer our customers. ALG the industry authority on vehicle values and depreciation acknowledges Mazda’s commitment to Quality, Value and Economy! ALG has Recognized “the Mazda3 as one of the best all-around vehicles in the Compact segment”. It’s earned itself critical acclaim by topping “Best Car” lists and receiving “Car Of The Year “ nods.
Mazda as a brand was also just ranked 3rd among all manufactures in vehicle reliability by Consumer Reports. Vehicle Reliability reflects quality and cost of ownership all of which are key factors in determining future value.
Why Is Residual Value Important?
Residual value is the projected market or resale value of your vehicle at a given time in the future. ALG, the auto industries authority strives to determine this value through careful study of the competition in each segment, historical vehicle performance and industry trends. Vehicle quality, reliability, production levels relative to demand, and pricing and marketing strategies represent key factors that all impact ALG’s residual value forecasts, or resale value, for the vehicle.
The residual value or projected resale value tells the buyer what they can expect as a future return on their vehicle purchase. For example if you purchased a vehicle for $20,000 with a projected resale value of 50% = $10,000 after 3years and maintained it as scheduled for the 3years then the buyer can expect to be able to sell it for $10000.
