What Mazda vehicles are rated as Top Safety Picks in 2020? 

One of the six high-rated Mazda models earned a Top Safety Pick title. That model is the 2020 Mazda CX-9 4-door SUV when it is equipped with specific highlights. As the only Mazda midsize SUV to get this rating, it is a good choice for people looking for a larger, safe vehicle. 


What does it mean to be a Top Safety Pick vehicle?  

Top Safety Pick vehicles are the second safest group of vehicles as rated by the IIHS, just behind the Top Safety Pick + category. That means that this vehicle is a good choice for someone who wants a safe vehicle, with perhaps a little less advanced safety technology than a Top Safety Pick + vehicle.
