It's the first Mazda with brake override, which shuts off the throttle if it determines the driver is trying to stop rather than accelerate.

The dropoff of the hatch lid below the rear window will have you learning parallel parking parameters by trial and error, however.
Motor Trend


The 2011 Mazda2 comes with several safety items—such as electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes—that aren't always included on the most affordable trims of rival small-car models. Likewise, front-seat airbags, side-curtain bags, and a new Brake Override system are included in all Mazda2s.

Although the 2011 Mazda2 hasn't yet been crash-tested in the U.S., Mazda boasts that the Mazda2 has achieved top five-star ratings in EuroNCAP (European) crash tests.

Conclusion

While we can’t gauge the Mazda2’s protection yet for a lack of U.S. testing, its safety equipment list looks like that of larger cars.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
