Below is the body structure shell for the 2005-2010 Mazda 5. The Mazda 5 is built with Triple H body construction. The Triple H construction gives superb strength to the unitary construction body. Unitary construction is a construction technique that supports structural load by using an object’s exterior. This is why higher strength steels are used in locations of high stress to increase strength and rigidity without adding weight.
The B-pillars are made of high-tensile steel. The side sills and B-pillars have large cross-sections for extra strength. Reinforcements were put in below the B and C-pillars to strengthen their joints to the side sills.
As for airbags:
- Advanced dual front air bags
- Side-impact air curtains with third-row coverage
- Front-seat mounted side-impact air bags
