Crash Test 1999 - 2003 Mazda 323 / Familia / Protege IIHS (Frontal Offset)
FRONTAL OFFSET TEST
OVERALL EVALUATION: Acceptable
Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics
Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right
Acceptable Good Good Marginal Poor Acceptable
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles
of similar weight.
The Mazda Protege was redesigned for the 1999 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was reasonably well
controlled. During rebound, the dummy moved toward the driver door. Its
head went part of the way out the open window and approached but didn't hit
the window frame.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the head, neck, and chest indicate
low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity.
Forces on both tibias indicate that injuries to the lower right leg would
be likely and injuries to the lower left leg would be possible.
