Model history and safety featuresThe tested model of Mazda2 was introduced in Australia at the end of 2007. Dual front airbags and antilock brakes (ABS) with electronic brake distribution (EBD) are standard. This 4-star rating applies to all hatch and sedan variants that do not have side airbags and inflatable curtains. Electronic stability control (ESC) became standard on Australian variants from May 2010. ESC was available on some variants prior to then. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats. Pretensioners 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 (lap) seat belt.
