What happened to the CX-5 NHSTA crash test scores between 2015 and 2016? The NHTSA scores for 2015 were 5/5/5/4 and now for 2016 are 4/4/5/4. What's up with that? The model is the same, so what was changed? The Frontal Barrier Crash Rating for Passenger went from 5 stars to 3 stars!!!

    Just a guess.. but, didn't they start doing a new partial overlap front crash test, this year?

    If so, maybe the Mazda didn't do as well on that test.

  • No, they were both tested for the small overlap. This did seem to be the test that the 2016 did poorly in.
