Comments

Adult occupant
The passenger compartment remained stable during the frontal impact and the dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both driver and passenger. Suzuki demonstrated that occupants of different sizes and those sat in different seating positions would have a similar level of protection against upper leg injuries. In the side barrier impact, protection of the chest was adequate but in the side pole impact the chest protection was only marginal. Whiplash protection in rear impacts was good.

Child occupant
In the frontal impact, the heads of the 3 year and 18 month dummies were protected and only fractions of a point were lost for each seat in the dynamic assessment. In the side impact, both dummies were also well protected. Although the passenger airbag can be disabled to allow for installation of a rearward facing child restraint to be placed on the front passenger seat, the status of the airbag was not clearly indicated. The ISOFIX and top tether attachments were well marked.

Pedestrian
The front edge of the bonnet scored no points for the protection it offers to pedestrians' legs. The protection offered by the bumper was predominantly good, as was the protection provided by the bonnet in most areas likely to be struck by the head of a child.

Safety assist
Electronic stability control is standard equipment on all variants, as is a seatbelt reminder for the driver and passenger seats.
