Important: Frontal crash test ratings should be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.

The Mazda Millenia was introduced in the 1995 model year and restyled for 2001.

Injury measures

Measures taken from the head, neck, chest, and right leg indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. Forces on the left tibia indicate that injuries to the lower leg would be likely. Head acceleration from the B-pillar and roof rail hits was low.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy moved toward the driver door, and its head hit the roof rail and B-pillar.
