The Mazda 2 shares its chassis and running gear with the Ford Fiesta. The two are built in the same factory. The Mazda 2's cabin took the frontal impact well , but the forces fed to the passenger's chest were relatively high. The car protected well enough in the side impact for a car without side (thorax) airbags fitted as standard. However, a door latch released in the test, which could threaten passengers. Child protection was mixed and pedestrian protection only average. Mazda paid for an additional side impact and pole test using cars fitted with optional side and head airbags.
