AASA & GlobalNCAP
The #SaferCarsForAfrica Campaign was launched by Global NCAP in 2017 with the objective of promoting safer vehicles across the continent of Africa. In collaboration with the AA, Global NCAP crash tests vehicles available locally in South Africa and rates them according to the safety they provide the occupants of the vehicle. The #SaferCarsForAfrica programme is supported by the FIA Foundation and Bloomberg Philanthropies.

Mazda 2 reaches four stars and Nissan Almera three stars for adult occupant protection
The Mazda 2 with driver and passenger airbags achieved four stars for adult occupant protection and three stars for children. The Nissan Almera with driver and passenger airbags scored three stars for adult occupants and three stars for children.
Both models showed seat failures during testing, the Nissan with a seat detachment and the Mazda with a backrest failure. Although these did not have significant effects on our assessment ratings, which are based on injury criteria, the failures are of serious concern and Global NCAP has raised them with each manufacturer as a matter of urgency.
