2011 Mazda 2 Touring: Not an IIHS Top Safety Pick

January 20, 2011


For those shopping the Fiesta against the 2011 Mazda 2, thought you might be interested in this: The 2011 Mazda 2 lost the IIHS's Top Safety Pick to the Ford Fiesta. For the crash test, it scored Good in everything except in protecting the driver's pelvis/leg area where it got a Marginal. Ouch.

From the IIHS site: "Driver -- Measures taken from the dummy indicate a fracture of the pelvis would be possible in a crash of this severity. The risk of significant injuries to other body regions is low."

Does that make you like the Mazda 2 a little less?
