Comments
Front impact
The double pre-tensioner on the driver's seatbelt restrained the dummy so that the knees did not contact the dashboard. The head of the driver dummy bottomed-out the airbag onto the steering wheel. However, head protection was still rated as 'adequate'. The passenger dummy scored maximum points.

Side impact
The Corsa scored maximum points for its performance in the side impact and pole tests.

Child occupant
The passenger airbag can be deactivated to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used. However, information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not sufficiently clear to meet Euro NCAP's requirements. The presence of ISOFIX anchorages in the rear outboard seats is not prominently marked.

Pedestrian
The protection offered by the bonnet to the head of a child and the protection offered by the bumper to pedestrians' legs were predominantly rated 'fair'. The leading edge of the bonnet scored no points.
