Car reviews - Mazda - Premacy - 5-dr people-mover
17 Aug 2001
DUAL airbags (45 litres capacity for the driver and 110 litres for the front passenger) are standard on Premacy, along with anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution. Designed in accordance with the Mazda Advanced Impact-energy Distribution and Absorption System (MAIDAS), Premacy is claimed to attain one of the highest levels of safety in any vehicle segment. The company claims it has performed well in (in-house) frontal, side-on, rear-end and pole crash tests. Pedestrian safety was also a high priority, with a good distance between bonnet and engine (to minimise head injuries when colliding with the car) and impact-absorbing bumpers (to protect the legs).
