Comments
Front impact
The occupant compartment and driver footwell remained stable during the impact. The deployment speed of the passenger's airbag gave cause for concern over possible injuries to the passenger's face and eyes. The steering column, ignition barrel and power steering motor presented a potential risk of injury to the driver's femurs. The glove box lid and its support brackets presented a risk to the passenger's femurs. As a result both the driver's and passenger's femurs were rated as marginal.

Side impact
In the side impact the chest was rated as marginal due to the high load transmitted through the driver's spine. As the vehicle was not equipped with a head protecting curtain airbag no pole test was performed.

Child occupant
The passenger's airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. However, information presented to the users regarding the status of the airbag is not sufficiently clear. The label warning against using a rearward facing child restraint in that position without disabling the airbag was clear and permanently attached. The presence of ISOFIX anchorages in the rear outboard seats was not clearly marked.

Pedestrian
The bonnet leading edge offered only a poor level of protection for a pedestrian's legs and the bonnet top where a child's head could impact was also rated as predominantly poor.
