Child Protection Test

In both the frontal offset and side impact test, protection was GOOD for all critical body areas for both the 6 year and 10 year child dummies.

The Mazda 3 is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages on the rear outboard seats and top tether anchorages for all rear seating positions.

Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed that most child restraints could be accommodated in most rear seating positions, though one of the selected booster seats could not be correctly installed in the centre rear seating position.

Pedestrian Summary

The bonnet of the Mazda 3 provided GOOD or ADEQUATE protection to the head of a struck pedestrian over most of its surface, with POOR results recorded only on the stiff windscreen pillars. The bumper scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrians’ legs, with GOOD results at all test locations. Protection of the pelvis was also GOOD.

The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system is capable of detecting and reacting to vulnerable road users including pedestrians and cyclists. The AEB system showed GOOD performance in pedestrian test scenarios under daylight conditions and some MARGINAL and WEAK performance under night-time conditions. ADEQUATE performance was seen in cyclist test scenarios with collisions avoided or mitigated at most test speeds.
