2013 Mazda CX5 Body Structure

The 2013 Mazda CX-5 received the IIHS’ best marks of “good” in front, side, and rear-impact tests, and rollover tests.  The new body architecture was developed as part of Mazda’s breakthrough SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY program, and incorporates a new energy absorbing structure as well as an expanded use of high tensile steel to reduce weight.  The new chassis incorporates 61% high-tensile strength steel, and in the bumpers and other key areas incorporates ultra-high tensile strength steel.  Standard safety equipment in all CX-5 models includes: six airbags, anti-lock disk brakes, daytime running lights, dynamic stability control and traction control, seat belt pre-tensioners, and a fold-away brake pedal assembly.
