The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Test data showed good protection of the dummies' knees and femurs in the test but the facia either side of the steering wheel was thought to pose some risk to the knees of drivers of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. The car scored maximum points in the side barrier test and, in the more severe side pole impact, protection of the head, abdomen and pelvis was good while that of the chest was adequate. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end collision.
In the frontal impact, forward movement of the head of the 3 year dummy, sat in a forward facing restraint, was not excessive. In the side barrier test, both dummies were properly contained by the protective shells of their restraints, minimising the risk of contact with parts of the car interior. The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. The dangers of using a rearward facing restraint in that seat without first disabling the airbag are clearly explained in a permanently-attached label.
The bumper scored maximum points for the protection it offered to pedestrians' legs. Similarly, the front edge of the bonnet provided good protection in all areas tested, and scored maximum points. The bonnet gave mixed results, both in the areas likely to be struck by a child and in those where an adult's head would contact. Poor performance was seen in some of the tested areas but good protection was offered in many others, especially towards the centre of the bonnet area.
Electronic stability control is standard equipment and passed Euro NCAP's test requirements. A seatbelt reminder is standard for the driver, passenger and rear seats.
