Mazda2 gets 5-Star safety rating

The European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) has awarded the funky Mazda2 five stars for adult occupant protection.

The stylish and highly popular hatch features a lightweight, but strong body using high and ultra high tensile steels. Subsequently the Mazda2 proved itself amongst the bests in segment on Euro NCAP crash tests. It scored a total of 34 points for adult protection and the highest possible ranking of five stars.

Child protection ratings were good too. A four-star ranking for child occupant protection with 37 points means Mazda's new sub-compact becomes one of the few cars in its segment to achieve this level of child protection.

And for pedestrian safety, Mazda2 achieved an admirable 18 points and two-star ranking.
