Mazda CX-7 Receives Five-Star Safety Rating

August 15, 2006

IRVINE, CA – The U.S. government’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) tested the 2007 Mazda CX-7 in both frontal and side-impact crash tests, and it earned the highest possible ratings, five stars, in both tests.For the frontal crash test, the CX-7 was crashed into a fixed barrier at 35 mph, with crash test dummies buckled in the driver and front passenger seats. This crash test is equivalent to a head-on collision between two identical vehicles each moving at 35 mph. Instruments measure the force of the impact to each dummy’s head, chest, and legs. The five-star rating attained by CX-7 indicates a 10 percent or less chance of serious injury to a belted occupant in the front seat.Side-impact crash testing represents an intersection-type collision with a 3,015-lb.barrier moving at 38.5 mph into the CX-7, with crash test dummies buckled into the driver and rear passenger seats. CX-7’s five-star rating, the highest possible, indicates a 5 percent or less chance of serious injury.
