Comments
Front impact
The passenger dummy's left knee registered higher loads than the driver's and was used in the adult occupant score. Structures in the knee-impact areas represented potential hazards to the knee and femur protection for both driver and passenger.

Child occupant
A rearward-facing childseat should not be placed in the front passenger's seat as there is no way to deactivate the airbag for that seating position. The label warning against doing this did meet Euro NCAP's requirements. The ISOFIX anchorages in the rear outboard seats were not sufficiently well indicated.

Pedestrian
The leading edge of the bonnet scored no points for the protection it offered to pedestrians.
