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.
