A five-star ANCAP safety rating has been published for all PHEV, petrol, and diesel variants of the new Mazda CX-60.

The CX-60 is fitted with a suite of advanced active safety technologies designed to avoid a crash, and high scores were recorded for its performance in all forward-moving autonomous emergency braking (AEB) tests with pedestrians, cyclists, and other vehicles, including in ‘turn-across-path’ intersection test scenarios.

The lane support system fitted to the Mazda CX-60 showed some areas of good performance, although performance in the more advanced emergency lane keeping (ELK) scenarios was assessed as Marginal.

Physical crash tests of the CX-60 saw full scores awarded for protection of the driver and child occupants in the side impact test, and to the driver in the more severe oblique pole test. The child restraint installation assessment also showed that all child restraint types could be safety accommodated in all three rear seating positions.

In the frontal offset (MPDB) test,good results were seen for the front passenger, howeverAdequate andMarginal performance was recorded for the chest and legs of the driver in this test scenario with penalties applied for potential knee injury risk for occupants of different sizes/statures, and incorrect knee airbag deployment.

“The CX-60 will be a welcome and safe addition to the Medium SUV segment and provide varied choice to customers looking for a safe and environmentally friendly vehicle,” said ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, Carla Hoorweg.
