The Mazda BT-50 was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in October 2020. This ANCAP safety rating applies to all variants excluding the Thunder. The safety performance of the Thunder variant has not yet been assessed.

The ANCAP safety rating of the Mazda BT-50 is based on testing of its shared platform, the Isuzu D-MAX. ANCAP was provided with technical information which showed that the test results achieved by the D-MAX also apply to the BT-50.

Dual frontal, side chest-protecting and side head-protecting (curtains) and a driver knee airbag are standard. A centre airbag which provides added protection to front seat occupants in side impact crashes is also standard on all variants.

Autonomous emergency braking (Car-to-Car and Vulnerable Road User) as well as lane keep assist (LKA) with lane departure warning (LDW), emergency lane keeping (ELK) and an advanced speed assistance system (SAS) are fitted as standard equipment on all variants.

A full list of safety features and technologies can be viewed within the Technical Report (see download link).

Installation of child restraints in the single and freestyle cab variants is not recommended as there are no top tether anchorages.
