Mazda 3 - Crash Tests 2019

The passenger compartment of the Mazda 3 remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings showed good protection for all critical body regions of the passenger. Good protection was provided to the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger. Mazda showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and those sitting in different positions. In the fullwidth, rigid barrier test, maximum points were scored for the front driver and rear passenger occupants, with good protection of all critical parts of the body. Similarly, in the side barrier test and the more severe side pole impact, all parts of the body were well protected and the car scored full points. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats also indicated good whiplash protection. The standard-fit autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system, known as 'Smart Brake Support', performed well in tests of its functionality at the low speeds, typical of city driving, at which many whiplash injuries occur. Collisions were avoided in all test scenarios.
