The latest, more stringent, Euro NCAP crash tests have failed to stop the new Mazda 6 from passing with flying colours.

Mazda attribute the success to the more rigid, yet lightweight SKYACTIV body used on the new Mazda6, whose impact-absorbing properties helped the new model secure a full 5-star rating.

The Euro NCAP ratings are now made up of four areas- Adult Occupant, Child Occupant, Vulnerable Road User, and Safety Assist categories - with the new Mazda6 outperforming its predecessor which has been on the market since 2013.  The new Mazda6 was significantly better in the Child Occupant category, with the score up by 14% to 91%, while in the Adult Occupant category it achieved an outstanding 95%.

The 2018 Mazda6 boasts a package of i-ACTIVSENSE safety features, including Mazda Cruise Control, improved Adaptive LED Headlights, an Intelligent Speed Assist system, Mazda's auto-hold function, and a 360° View Monitor.
