The passenger compartment remained stable during the impact. Protection of the driver's neck was rated as 'weak' because of the extent to which it was bent backwards in the test. Structures in the dashboard presented a risk of injury to the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger.
The X-Trail scored maximum points in the side impact and pole tests.
Maximum points were scored for the protection of the three year old, based on dummy responses in the frontal and side impacts. The presence of ISOFIX anchorages in the rear outboard seats was not clearly marked.
The front edge of the bonnet scored no points for its protection of pedestrians' legs. The bonnet offered predominantly poor protection to adults' heads.
