The Mazda 6's body suffered only a small amount of deformation at the driver's screen pillar. But it lost points in the tests because the driver's footwell ruptured. What's more, the driver experienced high levels of impact force on his chest in the front and side impacts, increasing his chances of injury. But in other respects the car provided balanced protection for its occupants during the front and side impacts. Protection for children was mixed but that for pedestrians was below average for this size and type of car
