Find out how the latest generation of the Mazda3 measures up against thorough Euro NCAP safety testing. Full report available here.
Following on from its release earlier this month, the All-New Mazda3 has undergone a series of examinations and crash tests designed and carried out by Euro NCAP (European New Car Assessment Programme) to test its safety when driving it in the complexity of the real world. The Euro NCAP regularly assesses new vehicles to help buyers compare and identify car safety ratings including how well it would do in real-life accident scenarios and the impact of such collisions to the occupants inside the vehicle. Euro NCAP will then rate the car out of 5 stars in addition to writing up a detailed report on the various car crash tests carried out. So, let’s see how the All-New Mazda3 performed…
All-New Mazda3 Earns 5-Stars
The All-New Mazda3 has earned the highest Euro NCAP 5-star safety rating making it one of the safest cars in the UK. Highlights include a near-perfect Adult Occupant score of 98 percent where dummy readings demonstrated the car’s ability to protect all critical body regions of both driver and passenger in the event of a front and side pole collision. In the event of a rear-end collision, Euro NCAP’s geometric assessment of front and rear seats were able to identify a high level of whiplash protection (1.8/2.0).
All-New Mazda3 Driving Technology
In-car tech was also put to the test as the All-New Mazda3 comes equipped with Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Lake Keeping Assist and Driver Attention Alert as standard. When tested in real-life potential accident scenarios, the Mazda3 was able to implement these functions to avoid all trial collisions, scoring impressively all-round.

When approaching a stationary vehicle, the All-New Mazda3 was able to react in time and autonomously emergency brake. This was the case for left offset, right offset as well as directly in front.
Pedestrian & Cyclist Protection
In terms of the protection of vulnerable road users, the Mazda3 scored a high 81 percent. This included the Mazda3 detecting pedestrians and cyclists and utilising the AEB system to prevent collisions. The results demonstrated a good level of recognition for pedestrians though cyclists proved more challenging to detect on road and scored as adequate.

The All-New Mazda3 scored impressively across the board and has proven that once again, Mazda has gone above and beyond to achieve a remarkable design that not only looks and feels good but is safe to drive.
