Comments
Front impact
There was heavy distortion and rupture of the driver's footwell in the frontal test. The pedals presented a risk of injury to the driver's lower legs. Structures in the dashboard represented a potential hazard to the knees and femurs.

Side impact
The car scored maximum points for its performance in the side impact and pole tests.

Child occupant
A passenger airbag deactivation switch is available as an after-market part from Mazda dealers. As it is not standard equipment, Euro NCAP has not assessed this switch. Without it, a rearward-facing child restraint should not be used in the front passenger's seat. The presence of the ISOFIX anchorages in the rear outboard seats was not clearly indicated. Euro NCAP has been advised that cars with VIN numbers later than JMZCR#####0321811 (production early 2008), did not have airbag warning labels in all languages of the EU. Without such a label, cars would have scored 2 points less for child protection, although the star rating would be unchanged.

Pedestrian
Neither the bumper nor the leading edge of the bonnet scored any points for the protection they offered to pedestrians.
