Mazda CX-5 earns five stars from Euro NCAP

Mazda’s all-new CX-5 is officially one of the safest cars in the world after receiving five-stars from Euro  NCAP*, the highest possible safety rating.  The CX-5, a compact crossover SUV launched in Europe in February, achieved top marks in all four safety categories ** . Its grades for adult occupant protection, child occupant protection, and safety assist systems (94%, 87% and 86%, respectively) were well above the 80%, 75% and 60% thresholds in these categories required to collect five stars overall. Indeed, the CX-5 attained the maximum rating despite being subject to higher standards introduced by Euro NCAP in 2012 for pedestrian protection, where vehicles now need a score of at least 60%. Following the Mazda6 and Mazda3, the CX-5 is the third Mazda to earn five stars from Euro NCAP since the agency introduced its new rating system in 2009. The scores in each category are determined based on several crash tests, including a 64km/h frontal impact, 50km/h vehicle-to-vehicle side impact, 29km/h pole side impact and 40km/h simulated pedestrian impact. Euro NCAP also evaluates the electronic stability control (ESC) system *** .
The first of a new generation of Mazda, the CX-5 is also the first model equipped with the innovative new SKYACTIV-Body. With the aim of developing the ideal car body, Mazda’s engineers went back to the drawing board, rethinking the fundamental principles of structure, materials and manufacturing methods. As a result, high-tensile steels comprise 61% of the body. In fact, the bumper beams inside the front and rear bumpers are made from 1,800 MPa ultra high-tensile steel—the strongest ever used in an automobile. Mazda has thus come up with a body that not only delivers superior crash safety, but is also extremely lightweight. Mazda plans to use the SKYACTIV-Body in all its new-generation products.

New Focus ST Headed to SA


  • Ford’s first global performance model, the new Focus ST, will go on sale in South Africa in the fourth quarter of 2012
  • New Ford Focus ST delivers a unique balance of outstanding performance, handling, refinement and style
  • The new Focus ST will be powered by the new EcoBoost engine – a first in South Africa

PRETORIA, South Africa, 2 July 2012 The New Focus ST will deliver a unique balance of outstanding performance, handling, refinement and style when it goes on sale in the fourth quarter of this year as Ford’s first global performance car.

Equipped with a turbocharged EcoBoost engine, the new Focus ST is expected to achieve exceptional performance figures while remaining frugal at the fuel pumps. This uncompromising performance is complemented by enhanced dynamics and a comprehensive range of driver assistance features.

“This is the car that performance Ford fans across the world have been waiting for,” said Matthias Tonn, Chief Program Engineer, Ford of Europe. “We’ve worked hard to make sure drivers will experience the true essence of what the ST badge represents -- wherever they are.”

The ST (Sport Technologies) badge was introduced first in Europe in 1997 and is reserved for sports-tuned variants of key Ford models. Customers have come to appreciate that cars carrying the unique Ford ST badge balance high performance with real-world practicality and refinement.

The One Ford approach to delivering an all-new, global Ford Focus paved the way for the new Focus ST.

Ford’s Global Performance Vehicles group established the DNA of the ST as a key part of its global performance car strategy following close collaboration between Ford Team RS in Europe, and the Special Vehicles Team (SVT) in the United States. Ford engineers from the Asia-Pacific region also provided input to ensure all new ST models would please drivers in key Focus markets.

“It’s the same car everywhere, from the engine to the suspension to the styling – right down to the tyres,” said Dieter Schwarz, head of Ford Team RS. “Now, you will be able to drive a Focus ST in Beijing and it will be the same dynamic experience as driving one in Los Angeles, London or Rome.”

“Our performance strategy is based on the fact that performance fans globally want the same thing,” added Schwarz. “For the Focus ST, that means combining a rewarding driving experience with the ability to ride to work in comfort.”

New Focus ST is powered by Ford’s 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine that delivers the power of a larger displacement unit with the fuel efficiency of a smaller engine. It achieves this through a combination of high pressure direct injection, low-inertia turbocharging, and Twin-independent Variable Cam Timing (Ti-VCT), as well as redesigned intake and exhaust systems, and unique calibration.

The Focus ST’s six-speed manual transmission produces maximum punch from each gear shift throw using specially-revised gearing. The sixth gear helps drivers achieve excellent fuel economy on longer runs.

Tangerine Scream, the new signature colour, matches the Focus ST’s exciting and energetic character. Spirit Blue, Race Red, Panther Black, Frozen White and Moondust Silver will also be available.
