Safety & security

The 6 achieved an average score in our safety assessments; not bad for its time, but other large cars do better now. It was awarded four stars for overall adult occupant protection in the Euro NCAP crash tests, with four for child protection but just one for pedestrian protection. 

Its performance in our security assessments was acceptable, but not class-leading - or up to the excellent standards of some other Mazda models. 

Safety 3 stars
