Mazda Motor Corporation has announced that the new Mazda6 has just been awarded the five-star maximum rating by the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) in its 2009 combined safety performance test.

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, which makes the five-star result all the more impressive.

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."
