Comments
Front impact
Structural deformation and spot-weld release indicated that the bodyshell had been overloaded and had become unstable. Rearward movement of the A-pillar was penalised. Movement of the steering-wheel presented a hazard to the driver's head. The driver's chest made contact with the steering-wheel, distorting the rim. Compression of the driver's chest indicated an unacceptably high risk of life-threatening injury. As a result, the final star of the adult occupant rating is struck through. Structures in the dashboard represented a potential hazard to the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. No points were awarded for the protection offered to the feet and ankles.

Child occupant
The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be placed in the front passenger's seat. However, the deactivation switch is not clearly marked and information regarding the status of the airbag is not sufficiently clear. The presence of the ISOFIX anchorages in the rear outboard seats was not clearly indicated.
