What Is an IIHS Safety Award?

An IIHS Safety Award is always a big honor. That’s why Mazda is proud to have multiple awards from the IIHS. But what exactly is an IIHS Safety Award?

IIHS stands for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Each year, they do studies to evaluate the safety of cars on the market. It takes into account two different aspects of safety.

First, it considers crashworthiness, which determines how well a vehicle can protect a driver and passengers in a crash. The outcome is based on five different tests and is given a rating of good, acceptable, marginal, or poor. The five different tests are conducted in moderate overlap front, small overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints.

Crash avoidance and mitigation is also considered, which analyzes technology that can prevent a crash in the first place or lessen the severity of a crash. Crash prevention systems can be rated basic, advanced, or superior.

Some Mazdas that have taken home IIHS awards in the past year are:
