Comments

Adult occupant
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger but the steering column and ignition barrel were thought to present a risk to drivers of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the side impact tests, the car was tested without the optional thorax airbag which did not meet Euro NCAP's fitment requirements. Dummy readings of rib compression in the side barrier test showed that protection of the chest was marginal and that of other body regions was good. In the more severe side pole test, chest protection was weak. The seat and head restraint provided marginal protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.

Child occupant
In the frontal impact, the 3 year dummy, sat in a forward facing restraint, did not move forward excessively. However, on rebound, the head of the dummy glanced against the rear window and the score was penalised. In the side impact, the 18 month dummy was properly contained but the head of the 3 year dummy was slightly outside the side wing of the restraint. The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. The system did not meet Euro NCAP's requirements but clear warnings are provided in the vehicle of the dangers of using a rearward facing restraint in that seat without first disabling the airbag.

Pedestrian
The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs and scored maximum points. However, the front edge of the bonnet was predominantly poor. In those areas likely to be struck by the head of a child, the bonnet provided good protection in some test areas but was mostly poor or marginal. In the areas likely to be struck by an adult's head, the car offered predominantly poor protection.

Safety assist
Electronic stability control is available as an option on the Panda but did not meet Euro NCAP's 2011 fitment requirements so was not assessed. A seatbelt reminder is standard for the driver, passenger and rear seats. A speed limitation device is not offered on the Panda.
