The all-new Mazda CX-60 has been awarded the maximum five-star rating by Euro NCAP in its latest series of tests, with 91 per cent and 88 per cent scores in its child and adult occupancy categories respectively. An impressive 89 per cent score in the area of Vulnerable Road Users Protection was also achieved.
Achieving maximum points for crash test performance based on 6 and 10 year old children, for both frontal and lateral impact, in the area of Child Occupancy, the correct installation of child seats – CRS Installation Check – also received full marks, leading to an excellent combined score of 91 per cent.
With full marks in the lateral impact tests and a good level of protection recognised in the full-width rigid barrier test, the 88 per cent score for Adult Occupancy is also significant. In both the side barrier and – more severe – side pole impact, protection of all critical body areas was good, leading to a maximum score in this part of the assessment.
The Mazda CX-60 scored an outstanding 89 per cent in Vulnerable Road Users. The performance of the autonomous emergency braking made the result one of the best yet for all vehicles tested since the latest Euro NCAP ratings. Mazda’s new range-topping SUV joins the Mazda CX-5 (2017), Mazda6 (2018), Mazda3 and Mazda CX-30 (both 2019) and Mazda MX-30 (2020) in achieving five-star Euro NCAP ratings.
The Mazda CX-60 performed impressively in all four Euro NCAP test categories: Adult Occupant – 88%, Child Occupant – 91 per cent, Vulnerable Road Users (pedestrian safety) – 89 per cent and Safety Assist – 76 per cent. Contributing to the five-star rating is the Skyactiv Multi-Solution Scalable Architecture, featuring numerous enhancements to offer excellent driving dynamics. The comprehensive range of the company’s advanced i-Activsense driver-supporting safety technologies that the vehicle is equipped with plays another key role in the rating result.
Several new technologies debut in the Mazda CX-60: See-Through View – a next-generation 360-degree monitor with extended field of view at low speeds; Hill Descent Control (HDC), which assists in safely descending steep slopes with slippery or rough road surfaces; Adaptive Cruise Control (i-ACC), which can now incorporate speed limits from Traffic Sign Recognition.
