Comments
Front impact
Structures in the knee-impact area represented potential hazards to the knee and femur protection on the driver's side.

Side impact
The head-protecting curtain airbag interacted with the B-pillar trim in the side impact although it deployed correctly in the pole test. Fiat is addressing the issue.

Child occupant
The presence of ISOFIX anchorages in the rear outboard seats was not sufficiently well indicated.
