Earning top safety scores in independent safety tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Mazda6 safety rating is sure to impress!
Take a look at the Mazda safety rating from each before you visit our Sarasota-area showroom for an in-depth test drive.

  • Roof strength
