The passenger compartment remained stable during the impact and the screen pillar was displaced rearward by only 4mm after the test. Protection of the front passenger was good for all body regions. Both the driver and passenger were well restrained by the double pretensioners and protection of the knees and femurs was good, the driver benefitting from a knee airbag. Alfa Romeo were able to demonstrate that similar protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sitting in different seating positions.
Readings from the 3 year dummy indicated high decelerations to the head and chest in the frontal impact but these did not seem to have been caused by contact with any part of the car's interior. The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that position. However, information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not clear. The presence of ISOFIX anchorages in the rear outboard seats is not clearly marked.
The bumper scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrians' legs. However, protection offered by the bonnet to the head of a struck adult was predominantly poor.
