If you are looking for a safe car to drive your family around to their many activities, then the 2014 Mazda 6 is the perfect pick for you! It is not only good looking, powerful and efficient, but it was named a Top Safety Pick+ winner from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
This is a great achievement for Mazda since the Mazda 6 is now one of only four in its category that has received this honor so far this year. Also, the Top Safety Pick+ rating has become stricter in the last year due to the new small overlap test. In order to win a Top Safety Pick+ award, each car must receive a rating of Good in four out of the five tests and no less than an Acceptable rating in the fifth test.
The Mazda 6 received good safety ratings for a number of standard and available safety features. The standard features on every Mazda 6 include an Anti-lock Brake System with Brake Assist, Roll Stability Control, Dynamic Stability Control, Traction Control and a tire pressure monitoring system. It also has a SKYACTIVE body and SKYACTIVE chassis. These are both designed to increase the strength and rigidity while keeping the cars weight down.
A number of intuitive safety features are available on the Mazda 6. Blind Spot Monitoring can detect other drivers in those hard-to-see areas and sounds a warning chime and light to notify you. The Smart City Brake Support helps apply brake pressure when a frontal collision is imminent. Finally, Rear Cross Traffic Alert helps you to identify objects behind your car.
The Mazda 6 offers drivers the whole package, sporty good looks, fuel efficiency, performance and Top Safety Pick+ safety features, all at an affordable price. The 2014 Mazda 6 is now available at our dealership, Bakersfield Mazda. You can contact their friendly sales staff to find out more information or to set up a test drive.
