    Re: 2006 Mazda5 crash test video

    that's the euroNCAP set of crash tests for the 2005 mazda5 (it was introduced as an 05 model in the EU, and an 06 model in the US). in addition to a frontal and a side-impact, they also do a "pole" test, which similates the vehicle wrapping itself around a tree (european back roads are often tree-lined and lack crash barriers, so it's a very appropriate test for cars sold in europe).

    the mazda5 earns the top 5-star adult occupant rating, and a three-star second-row child seat occupant rating (very few vehicles achieve a 4-star rating in that regard). however, those tests are conducted with a euro-specific child seat, so it's difficult do judge how safe a child would be in a US carseat in a US-spec car of the same model.

    direct link to the mazda5 euroNCAP results including pictures and videos:
    Two girls, 7 and 6. Trek Mountain, Specialized Hotrock, Soma Buena Vista, Bike Friday tandem, and multiple other bikes. Oh, and a Mazda5.

    Looks good, though. Love to see that passenger compartment remain intact...
