The all-new Mazda 3 was recently subjected to the Euro NCAP crash safety assessment and it was awarded full 5-Stars from the organisation under the new, more stringent 2018 Euro NCAP crashworthiness ratings.

The Mazda 3 scored a remarkable 98% in the Adult Occupant category with maximum points for frontal full width impact, and both car and pole side impacts. Mazda’s i-Activsense advanced driving assistance systems, particularly the Smart Brake Support (autonomous emergency braking) avoided collisions in all scenarios, scoring full marks in Low Speed tests.

In the Child Occupant, Vulnerable Road User (Pedestrian Safety) and Safety Assist category, the Mazda 3 scored 87%, 81% and 73% respectively – all of which are above the average scores. The Mazda 3 lost some points in the AEB night time and cyclist crossing scenarios, achieving adequate to marginal rating.

We recently got acquainted with the new Mazda 3 in Singapore and discovered some interesting facts about the sleek, premium sedan. Hopefully, it won’t be long before we see them running around on Malaysian roads.
