The Mazda Mazda2 hasn't performed at the top of its class in crash-testing, but it does include a set of safety features that's par for a car this price.

In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) testing, the Mazda2 achieved a top rating of "good" for its frontal-offset crash and roof strength tests, but it was only rated "acceptable" in the side and rear crash categories.

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.
