Driver Protection rating based on analysis of real world crashes.



Used Car Safety Report

The Mazda Tribute has been awarded a 4 star Driver Protection rating in the latest Used Car Safety Rating (UCSR) report. UCSR are reported annually by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). Ratings are estimated from data on real crashes reported to police in Australia and New Zealand and provide a very high level of confidence. The UCSR report classifies cars according to where their rating lies in relation to a best performance benchmark. The Driver Protection rating measures the relative safety of cars in preventing serious injury to their own drivers in crashes.

The tested model of Mazda Tribute was introduced in 2001. During 2004 side airbags with head protection became standard equipment. This assessment applies to the Tribute with side airbags. The 'Limited' variant of the Ford Escape is based on the same vehicle and also has side airbags. It can be expected to provide similar crashworthiness.

The Mazda Tribute scored 8.67 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape reasonably well except in the footwell. Protection from serious leg injury was poor for the driver.

The vehicle scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and zero in the pole test.


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Dual front airbags are also standard. ABS brakes are available on some variants. Electronic stability control is not available. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt.

Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash.

The passenger compartment held its shape reasonably well in the offset crash test. However the front part of the driver's floor was pushed rearwards 190mm and the brake pedal moved rearwards by 234mm. The pedal moved upwards 65mm. The dash moved 68mm towards the driver. The steering wheel hub moved rearwards 40mm, upwards 11mm and sideways 28mm. The front ("A") pillar moved 98mm rearwards. The roof buckled upwards above the driver and the width of the driver's doorway shortened by 91mm. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash high manual effort was required to open the driver’s door.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver. The head started to roll off the side of the airbag but was not sufficient to attract a penalty. The driver's knees hit the steering column and dash. The ignition switch barrel and column adjuster were found to be potential sources of knee injury. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag. The passenger's knees hit the glove box.

Side Impact Test Results

Side Impact* 16 pts (out of 16)
Head 4 pts
Chest 4 pts
Abdomen 4 pts
Pelvis 4 pts

This test simulates a fairly small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. It is based on a regulation test but the regulation does not apply to vehicles with a high seat height like the Tribute. Such vehicles can be expected to perform relatively well in this particular side impact test.

ANCAP chose to conduct the pole test. The head portion of the side airbag did not deploy correctly and failed to protect the head from the risk of serious injury. This resulted in a score of zero.
