2012 Mazda MAZDA2 Safety

7.0
Safety

The 2012 Mazda2 hasn't been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), but the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gives the car its top rating of "Good" for its frontal-offset crash and roof strength tests. The IIHS only rates it as "Adequate," however, for side-impact and rear-crash protection.

The littlest Mazda includes the usual suite of safety systems that are now virtually standard across all sizes and types of cars: electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, and a brake override system. It has front and side airbags for front-seat occupants, and side-curtain bags that cover the window openings for both front and rear passengers.

The 2012 Mazda Mazda2 has the usual suite of safety systems, and received decent--if not top-of-the-list--safety ratings from the IIHS.
