The Basics

The Basics

Every version of the Mazda6 covers the basics fully, including standard safety features like front side airbags and side curtain airbags, active front head restraints, traction control, and stability control. Every version of this sedan also comes with a rearview camera and rear parking sensors, as well as a telematics system with automatic crash notification.


The Mazda6 gives you eyes where you don’t have them, making it easier to stay safe on drives throughout East Hartford and Glastonbury streets. The i-ACTIVSENSE® safety innovation uses cameras and advanced radar signals to make you aware of hazards before a collision, while also interacting with the vehicle’s active systems to help prevent a collision when possible or mitigate the damage when one is about to occur. Features include:

  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Smart City Brake Support
  • Distance Recognition Support System
  • Lane Departure Warning System

Safety Scores

All of these safety features, combined with the intelligent design aspects of the Mazda6’s body and frame, have helped it achieve a number of top safety scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):

  • IIHS – The IIHS gave the Mazda6 its top overall safety rating of Top Safety Pick+, thanks to its top score of “Good” in the moderate overlap front impact, small overlap front impact, side impact, roof strength, and whiplash protections tests.
  • NHTSA – The NHTSA gave the Mazda6 five out of five stars for overall safety, including five stars in the frontal impact and side impact protections tests and four stars in the rollover protection test.
