Applies to

Sedans with side and curtain airbags

Type

Small Car

Engine / Fuel Type

Conventional vehicles

The tested model of Mazda 3 was introduced in 2004.

Dual front airbags, side airbags, head-protecting side curtains and ABS brakes are standard equipment on the Maxx and SP23 variants. Side airbags, curtains and ABS brakes are available as a safety pack on the Neo variant. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pre-tensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point seat belt.
