The European organization Euro NCAP conducted a crash test of the Mazda MX-30 and Honda Jazz. They earned five stars out of five.


The European independent organization has published the results of crash tests of two cars. This time, the tests involved the electric crossover Mazda MX-30 and hybrid Honda Jazz of the new generation. Both cars received the maximum five safety stars in the tests.

Thus, for the Mazda MX-30, the safety of the driver and adult passengers was rated at 91%, children - at 87%, pedestrians - at 68%, and the operation of electronic auxiliary systems - at 73%. The readings taken from the dummies showed the risk of injury to the driver's chest and lower leg in a frontal impact with a moving barrier. In both the side barrier test, representing a collision by another vehicle, and the more severe side pole impact protection of all critical body areas was good, and the car scored maximum points for these two tests. In an assessment of protection in far-side impact, mitigation of dummy excursion (its movement towards the other side of the vehicle) was rated as adequate. 


For pedestrians, the protection provided by the bonnet to the head of a struck pedestrian was almost entirely good or adequate. The bumper also provided good protection to pedestrians' legs but the protection of the pelvis was mixed. The MX-30's autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system can detect vulnerable road users like pedestrians and cyclists, as well as other vehicles. In Euro NCAP's tests, the system's response to such road users was marginal. The system does not detect pedestrians to the rear of the car, nor those crossing the path of a turning vehicle. 



The MX-30 is equipped with the e-Skyactiv electrical system, which consists of a 105 kW (143 hp) unit and 265 Nm of torque. The electric motor powers a 35.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which allows you to travel up to 200 kilometers without recharging. With the help of a special system, the batteries can be replenished from 0% to 80% in 30-40 minutes.


As for the Honda Jazz, the experts also rated the safety of adults at 97%, children - at 83%, other road users - at 80%, and 76% for electronic "assistants". The readings taken from the dummies revealed only a high risk of chest and shin injuries for the driver in a head-on collision. In the side barrier test, representing a collision by another vehicle, protection of all critical body areas was good apart from the chest, protection of which was adequate. In the more severe side pole impact, protection was good all-round. In an assessment of protection in far-side impact, dummy excursion (its movement towards the other side of the vehicle) was rated as marginal. 



For pedestrians, the bonnet provided predominantly good or adequate protection to the head of a struck pedestrian, with some poor results recorded on the stiff windscreen pillars. The bumper provided good or adequate protection to pedestrians' legs and protection of the pelvis was good at most test positions but poor in some. The Jazz's autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system can detect vulnerable road users like pedestrians and cyclists, as well as other vehicles. In tests, the system's response to such road users was good, with collisions avoided or mitigated in most cases. The system does not detect pedestrians to the rear of the car, and reversing tests were not performed. 


The Honda Jazz is only available with the e: HEV hybrid powertrain. It includes a 1.5-liter gasoline engine and two electric motors.
