The 2015 Mazda3 receives Five-Star Crash Rating Madza continues driving towards better safety standards as it receives high marks from the NHTSA

MIAMI, July 1, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- After Mazda released the new Mazda3 and its latest redesign in 2014, the first thing they did for the 2015 Mazda3 in Miami, Fla. is have it inspected by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Coming out of the inspection, the Mazda3 earned a five-star overall crash rating, an achievement Mazda never attempted with the models predecessors. Rated for front, side, rear, and rollover crash tests, the Mazda3 came through with top ratings, save for the rollover crash test where it still achieved a four star rating.


Mazda's mid-sized sedan is packed full of safety features, helping it earn the best rating from the NHTSA that that organization can give. Both the sedan and hatchback versions of the Mazda3 achieved the rating, with great features like electronic stability control, antilock brakes and daytime running lights, as well as optional safety features such as lane-departure warning, forward obstruction warning and blind-spot monitoring.

The ratings help set apart the 2015 Mazda3 in Miami, Fla. from some of its stiffest competition. The 2015 Kia Forte only managed to earn a four-star overall rating, while others, including the 2015 Ford Focus, Honda Civic, and Toyota Corolla have yet to be tested.

Next up will be getting the 2015 Mazda3 tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, where last year, it received the 2014 Top Safety Pick+ for Mazda's advances in vehicle safety and design. As Mazda continues to improve their vehicles every year, expect ratings and awards such as these to continue to accrue across Mazda's impressive line-up of cars.
