The 2015 Mazda CX-5 has earned the highest rating of five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This rating is applicable to both the front-wheel drive and the all-wheel drive versions of the car. The Mazda CX-5 has certain safety features which include: anti-lock brakes, daytime running lights, and electronic stability control. The individual breakdown for the rating is as follows: the vehicle earned five stars on the front and side crash tests, and four stars on the rollover crash test.

The NHTSA was founded due to the Highway Safety Act of 1970, with a goal of exacting standards of excellence in regards to vehicles and highway safety. Its duties include striving to prevent accidents and associated costs. The duties are fulfilled by the organization establishing safety standards for vehicles and vehicle equipment. Their allocation of state and local government’s grants allows these governments to establish local highway safety programs. NHTSA establishes and enforces fuel economy standards, promotes seat belts, air bags, and child safety seats. They also investigate odometer fraud and safety defects. The NHTSA further fulfills their duties by performing research on driver behavior and traffic safety.
