SAFETY | 8 out of 10
There aren't yet any crash-test results for the Mazda5, which has been fully redesigned for 2012. But with an all-new, stronger 'triple-H' body structure plus improved side and roof protection, it should do a better job of occupant protection in general.
Head-protecting side-curtain bags reach back through all three rows, brake and accelerator pedals are no crushable to protect the driver's legs, and a new Brake Override System is included. Electronic stability control is standard, as are anti-lock brakes.
The Mazda5 lacks high-tech safety extras, but its improved body structure for 2012 should help it do well in crash tests.
