Mazda6 is a mid-size sports sedan known for its excitingly turbocharged ride, unmatched creature comforts, and cutting-edge entertainment and connectivity technologies. However, it's also a safe bet for traveling northern Florida.

In fact, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently awarded Mazda6 models built after June 2019 the status of TOP SAFETY PICK+. That's when equipped with front crash prevention and specific headlights.

Indeed, the IIHS rated the mid-size car "good" in driver- and passenger-side small overlap front, side, moderate overlap front, roof strength, and head restraint testing. That's the highest. It also received a "superior" rating for its ability to help prevent a front-end crash. That was thanks to equipment with Advanced Smart City Brake Support and pedestrian detection. It even got rated "good" on headlighting based on post-June 2019 improvements to LED projector-type.

Plenty of other passive safety and active driver-assist features make Mazda6 as safe as it is, too. They include:

  • Dynamic stability and traction control systems and hill launch assist to level the ride and make managing slopes easier
  • A rear-view camera, available 360-degree view monitor, and optional front and rear parking sensors to simplify reversing and parking at your destination in Orange Park
  • Blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, and lane-keep assist for situational awareness around Saint Augustine and course correction
  • Smart brake support with collision warning for avoiding accidents on the roads of Middleburg FL
  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go for safe distancing in Gainesville traffic
  • An adaptive front-lighting system to illuminate the way with driving conditions in mind
