2020 Mazda IIHS Top Safety Pick+ & Top Safety Pick Vehicles

Every year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recognizes the vehicles that perform admirably in crash testing and other evaluations by awarding the Top Safety Pick and Top Safety Pick+ awards. For 2020, the IIHS updated the standards for both TSP and TSP+ awards, creating tougher criteria for the rigorous tests.

To earn a Top Safety Pick award, the vehicle must earn a Good rating in all IIHS crash tests, including the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint tests. The car needs to earn an Advanced or Superior rating for front crash prevention and an Advanced or Superior rating for front crash prevention in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations. For the headlight rating, the vehicle must receive an Acceptable or Good rating using optional lights.

The Top Safety Pick+ award winners must also receive scores of Good in the crash tests, as well as an Advanced or Superior rating for front crash prevention in vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations. What distinguishes the Top Safety Pick+ vehicles from the Top Safety Pick winners is the headlight score. For the 2020 TSP+ vehicles, the headlight score of Good or Acceptable must be found standard on all models of the vehicle, not just on certain trim levels or presented as an optional feature.
