Mazda CX-60 – Safe SUV? – Crash Test. 2022-2023 Mazda CX-60 midsize crossover SUV achieves top safety ratings.
The passenger compartment of the CX-60 remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy numbers showed good protection of the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger. However, inspection of the vehicle after the test revealed that the driver’s knee was only partially protected by the knee airbag, for which the car received a penalty. Mazda state that dummy knee was fully protected in development tests. Analysis of the deceleration of the impact trolley during the test, and analysis of the deformable barrier after the test, revealed that the CX-60 would be a benign impact partner in a frontal collision. In the full-width rigid barrier test, good or adequate
protection was provided to all critical body areas, for both the driver and rear passenger. In both the side barrier test and the more severe side pole impact, protection of all critical body areas was good and the car scored maximum points in this part of the assessment. Control of excursion (the extent to which a body is thrown to the other side of the vehicle when it is hit from the far side) was found to be good. The CX-60 has a counter-measure to mitigate against occupant to occupant injuries in such impacts and this performed well in Euro NCAP’s test. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric analysis of the rear seats also indicated good whiplash protection. The CX-60 has a system which applies the brakes after an impact to avoid secondary collisions.
In both the frontal offset and the side barrier impacts, protection of all critical body areas was good, for both the child dummies, and the CX-60 scored maximum points in this part of the assessment. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraint types for which the CX-60 is designed could be properly installed and accommodated.
The protection provided by the bonnet to the head of a struck pedestrian was good over almost its entire surface. The bumper offered good protection to pedestrians’ legs and protection of the pelvis region was also good at all test locations. The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system of the CX-60 can respond to vulnerable road users, as well as to other vehicles. The system performed adequately in tests of its response to pedestrians and well when tested using targets representing cyclists, with collisions avoided or mitigated in most scenarios.
