Comments
Front impact
Structures in the dashboard presented a risk of injury to the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger.

Side impact
The Legend scored maximum points based on the dummy measurements in the side impact and pole tests. However, the rear door on the impacted side became unlatched in the side impact test and the car lost one point.

Child occupant
It is not possible to disable the front passenger's airbag so a rearward-facing child restraint should not be used in that seating position. The presence of ISOFIX anchorages in the rear outboard seats was not clearly marked.

Pedestrian
The car detects when a pedestrian has been struck and has a mechanism to pop up the bonnet, increasing the gap between the bonnet surface and hard components in the engine bay. The bumper scored maximum points for the protection it offered to pedestrians' legs.
