Is it easy to put car seats in the 2019 Mazda6?
There is an infinite number of joys to be found in being a parent. Almost nobody would say installing car seats in the backseat of a vehicle is found on that list. However, some vehicles make it easier than others. So, is it easy to put car seats in the 2019 Mazda6? According to some recently released information from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the new Mazda6 certainly ranks pretty high in the narrow category. The IIHS has been releasing important information about passenger vehicles for several years now with a focus on crash testing. However, knowing that it will be more convenient to safely install car seats for kids should really be a game-changer for Bert Ogden Mazda Edinburg customers.
The IIHS gave the 2019 Mazda6 its top score of ‘Good+’ in its LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) ease-of-use ratings. Hopefully, parents or caretakers would never let a child roam the backseat just because it was difficult to install a car seat. But, knowing that it’s easier to set one up than other models should give buyers a good reason to schedule a test drive with Bert Ogden Mazda Edinburg.
Just like its overall safety ratings, the IIHS doesn’t hand out these high scores like some kind of popularity contest. The 2019 Mazda6 had to go through a rigorous testing process to earn its score. Some of the testing criteria include:
• Lower anchors that are no more than three-quarters of an inch deep in the seat.
• The lower anchors must have a clearance angle of greater than 54 degrees.
• Tether anchors must be located on the vehicle’s rear deck or mid-seatback.
• Tethering equipment must be free from obstructions as much as possible.
“Mazda vehicles are designed with the driver and passenger in mind,” Jeff Guyton, President of Mazda North American Operations, said in a press release. “We design our vehicles with an active approach to safety, giving all members of the family peace of mind. We are proud to receive this recognition from IIHS as a testament to our dedication to safety.”
