Child Protection Test

Protection was GOOD for all critical body areas for the 6 year and 10 year dummies in both the frontal offset and side impact tests.

The Mazda 6 is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages for the rear outboard seats and top tether anchorages for all rear seats.

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

Pedestrian Summary

The Mazda 6 has an ‘active’ bonnet. Sensors detect when a pedestrian is struck and actuators lift the bonnet to provide greater clearance to stiff components in the engine bay. The vehicle was tested with the bonnet in the raised position and GOOD or ADEQUATE results were recorded over most of the bonnet area with some POOR results recorded around the windscreen pillars. The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians’ legs however protection of the pelvis was predominantly POOR.
