This Mazda BT50 was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in October 2011. This ANCAP 5-star rating applies to all BT50 variants (all bodystyles, engines, 4X4 and 4X2) sold in Australia and New Zealand.

The vehicle scored 15.72 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. There was a slight risk of serious chest injury for the driver.

The vehicle scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and a further two points in the pole test.

Important note: The RHD 2.2 diesel Ford Ranger was tested by Euro NCAP. ANCAP was provided with technical information which showed that all Australasian variants of the BT50 have comparable occupant protection to the tested Ford Ranger.


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, head-protecting side curtains, antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are standard. Side thorax airbags are also standard except for single cabs with three front seats (bench seats). These variants, with 4 airbags, retain a 5-star rating.

Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats of most variants. However single cab variants with three front seats only have a driver seat belt reminder. The overall score for these reduces to 34.72 but they retain a 5-star rating.

Frontal Offset Crash Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 15.72 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 4 pts
Chest 3.72 pts
Upper Legs 4 pts
Lower Legs 4 pts

The passenger compartment held its shape well in the offset crash test. The accelerator pedal moved rearwards by 58mm and upwards 7mm. The steering wheel hub moved 40mm forward, 2mm downward and 7mm sideways. The front ("A") pillar moved 2mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash all doors could be opened with normal effort.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. The vehicle tested by Euro NCAP had a driver knee airbag that is not available for Australasian models. However Ford/Mazda provided technical information to ANCAP which demonstrated that the Australasian models of the Ranger and BT50 have comparable upper leg protection to the European model. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag.

The side impact test simulates a 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 Ranger/BT50. Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test and the Ranger/BT50 scored full marks.

The vehicle was eligible for a pole impact test, since it had head-protecting side airbags. The vehicle earned the maximum two points in this test.
