4 is good 5 would of been better, lets see what Fiat can do.
The Mazda MX-5 just underwent Euro NCAP crash testing and it came away with a respectable 4 out of 5 stars.
Euro NCAP says that the Mazda performed well across all tests, lauding the MX-5's standard deployable hood for protecting pedestrians.
They did note that in the event of a frontal impact the drivers head may make contact with the steering wheel as the airbag didn't have enough pressure. They said dummy readings were good regardless. Chest protection in the event of a side impact is only rated as adequate, but lets be serious, you're buying a convertible and they inherently offer less protection.
Safety Assists are what kept the MX-5 from reaching 5/5. Mazda doesn't offer an autonomous braking system, leaving it with a 64% rating for Safety Assists.
The package seems fairly robust, should Fiat want that 5 star rating for the 124 Spider they'll only need to include autonomous braking.
