WASHINGTON: The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) announced that the 2020 Mazda CX-30 has earned its 2020 Top Safety Pick award when equipped with specific headlights.

To qualify for the 2020 Top Safety Pick award, the CX-30 earned good ratings in all six IIHS crashworthiness evaluations, including the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests.

It also needed advanced or superior ratings for both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian front crash prevention, as well as an acceptable or good headlight rating.

“Safety is a top priority with Mazda, and we are proud to have the CX-30 earn the 2020 IIHS Top Safety Pick  award,“ said Mazda North American Operations President Jeff Guyton.

“We are committed to providing the most advanced safety technologies in our vehicles, and we continue to challenge ourselves to create unique products and technologies, which provide our customers a confident, relaxing, joyful driving experience.“
