The 2014 Mazda 5 includes all the safety equipment you get on most new cars, as standard, but it doesn't offer any of the advanced technology found on some of the competition. And its crash-test ratings aren't proving all that impressive.

Three-row curtain airbags are standard, as are a throttle-brake override system and stability control. Odd exclusions (even optional) include a rearview camera and blind-spot monitors. Bluetooth hands-free calling, which we consider a safety feature, isn't standard, or even available on the base Sport.

The Mazda 5 still hasn't been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). But the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) just tested a 2014 model, in summer of 2014, and found that it didn't fare well in several categories. It rather spectacularly failed the tough new small overlap frontal test since it was last redesigned, a couple of years ago.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
