Australasia’s leading independent vehicle safety authority, ANCAP SAFETY, has seen the Mazda CX-30 small SUV record a near-perfect score for Adult Occupant Protection with high scores also achieved across other key assessment areas.

“The Mazda CX-30 achieved the highest Adult Occupant Protection score we’ve recorded to date with an impressive score of 99%,” said ANCAP Chief Executive, James Goodwin.

“It performed exceptionally well across the range of destructive crash tests including the full width, side impact, oblique pole and whiplash tests.  Only minor reductions were seen for potential injury risk to the lower legs in the frontal offset test.”

“The physical protection offered to child occupants was also strong, and our assessment showed a range of common child restraints could be safely accommodated.”

“Autonomous emergency braking performance was Good with vehicle-to-vehicle collisions avoided or mitigated across higher-speed scenarios.  Active lane keep assist functionality also showed areas of Good performance however the system does not have the capability to intervene in more critical emergency lane keeping scenarios,” Mr Goodwin added.

A 5 star ANCAP safety rating applies to all CX-30 variants sold in Australia and New Zealand.
