WASHINGTON — The 2015 Mazda CX-5 crossover earned the highest five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The rating applies to front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions of the 2015 CX-5.

The carryover 2015 CX-5 earned five stars in the front and side crash tests and four stars in the rollover crash test.

The 2015 CX-5 has not been rated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. However, the 2014 CX-5 is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, earning "good" scores in all crash tests, including the small overlap front crash test. The test is designed to replicate what happens when the front corner of a vehicle collides with another vehicle or an object like a tree or utility pole.

Standard safety equipment on the 2015 CX-5 includes antilock brakes, electronic stability control and daytime running lights.

Competitors to the CX-5 include the 2014 Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and Toyota RAV4.

Edmunds says: Federal safety regulators are just beginning to post 2015 crash scores, so it's a little difficult to do a head-to-head comparison at this point. But it should be noted that the 2015 CX-5 already outpaces several competitors in this area, including the 2014 Ford Escape and Toyota RAV4, which earned four-star overall ratings.
