For 2009, Euro NCAP has implemented a new assessment system that awards a single overall vehicle safety rating composed from scores achieved in four areas of assessment: Adult Occupant Protection, Child Protection, Pedestrian Protection and Safety Assist. The Mazda6 is Mazda's first model tested under the revised evaluation framework.
Seita Kanai, Mazda's Senior Managing Executive Officer in charge of R&D, said: "Mazda6's maximum safety rating from Euro NCAP is a reflection of the progress Mazda has made in harmonizing driving pleasure with safety and environmental performance under the 'Sustainable Zoom-Zoom' plan. Going forward, Mazda will strive to fulfil our corporate social responsibilities by further advancing our eco-friendly and safety technologies".Two millionth Mazda6 comes off the line
