New Mazda CX-9 Earns Top Safety Pick+ Rating

Mazda has always been a name associated with affordable quality and reliable innovation. For the 2017 model year, Mazda engineers went back to the drawing board to improve the 2017 CX-9 model year over its predecessor – and succeeded. The new Mazda CX-9 for 2017 earned the highest-possible safety rating from the IIHS, resulting in the Top Safety Pick+ title.

In recent years, in order to adapt to swiftly changing technology, the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety has been gradually changing qualifications for the title in order to make them stricter. For 2017, not only do vehicles that take home the Top Safety Pick+ title have to earn top marks in every single crash category, but they also have to be equipped with front crash prevention technology. The 2017 Mazda CX-9 made changes to how its side-curtain airbags deployed, allowing them to more effectively protect passengers in the crossover.

The new Mazda CX-9 not only represents a continuation of the brand’s commitment to quality, innovation, and excellence but also family-friendly safety. If you’re looking for a spacious, three-row crossover that will keep your family secure, come to Bakersfield Mazda and we can show you our inventory of the new Mazda CX-9 today.
