Mazda CX-8 receives 5-star safety rating!

We are delighted to advise that the 2018 Mazda CX-8 has been awarded the maximum 5-star rating (2018 tested) by the Australasian New Car Assessment Programme (ANCAP) in its combined safety performance evaluation.

This result ensures that every current Mazda model has achieved the highest safety rating available.

With Euro NCAP and ANCAP now working collaboratively, the tests are more rigorous - placing more emphasis on safety assist technologies and occupant protection.


The 2018 Mazda CX-8 performed well across all categories; achieving a comfortable 5-star rating and overall score of 123.8 (out of a possible 148 points). Importantly the Mazda CX-8 exhibits excellent Adult and Child Occupant Protection outcomes, with these tests scoring very highly. Special mention was made about the CX-8 offering child restraint anchor points across all five (5) rear seats.
