When equipped with optional front crash prevention, the 2021 CX-30 (built after September 2020) joins the 2021 Mazda3 and Mazda3 Sport, Mazda6, and CX-5 as 2020 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award recipients. The 2021 CX-9 receives the 2020 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award with standard equipment. Mazda leads the industry with more TOP SAFETY PICK + awards than any other auto brand.
