Mazda Lands SKYACTIV Trifecta on U.S. News Best Cars for Families List

03/21/2014 (press release: CambridgePRGroup) // RAYNHAM, Mass. // Mastria Mazda

Mazda currently has three vehicles on the market that feature its full suite of fuel-saving SKYACTIV technologies, and all of them recently landed on the 2014 Best Cars for Families list from U.S. News & World Report. With the 2014 Mazda CX-5, Mazda3 and Mazda6 each topping their segments, Mazda was the most awarded brand on the U.S. News list, which was determined by automotive reviews, safety and reliability ratings, interior space, and available family-friendly features.

Encompassing the engine, transmission, body and chassis, Mazda’s new SKYACTIV technologies are cleverly engineered to be not only lightweight and fuel efficient but also structurally rigid for added safety. SKYACTIV allows the 2014 Mazda CX-5 to return up to 35 mpg on the highway, a factor that helped it top the Compact SUV category on the Best Cars for Families list. Meanwhile, the 2014 Mazda3 was honored by U.S. News in both the Hatchback and Compact Car categories, netting up to 40 mpg and 41 mpg on the highway in those segments, respectively. Leading the Midsize Car category for families, the 2014 Mazda6 is rated at up to 40 mpg on the highway.

“The introduction of SKYACTIV technology has enabled Mazda to retain its signature responsiveness in new models while boosting their family-friendliness with improved fuel efficiency and safety,” said Barry Chew, sales manager of Mastria Mazda, a Greater Boston Mazda dealer. “That means that modern parents don’t have to forgo a fun ride when selecting a vehicle that’s fit to safely transport their kids.”

Both the Mazda3 and Mazda6 recently proved the strength of their SKYACTIV bodies, with each car earning a 5-Star Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in its New Car Assessment Program. To obtain the government agency’s top crash-protection rating, the 2014 Mazda3 achieved five-star scores in frontal and side-impact testing while securing four stars in the NHTSA’s rollover evaluation. On the other hand, the 2014 and 2015 Mazda6 sedans received five-star side-impact ratings and four-star ratings in the frontal and rollover tests.
