Comments
Front impact
The passenger compartment remained stable during the impact. The steering column presented a potential risk of injury to the driver's femurs. Protection of the chest was rated as marginal for both the driver and the passenger.

Side impact
A head-protecting airbag is available as an option on the Kangoo but is not fitted as standard so no pole test was done.

Child occupant
The passenger's airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. However, information presented to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not sufficiently clear. The label warning against using a rearward facing child restraint in that position without disabling the airbag was clear and permanently attached. The presence of ISOFIX anchorages in the front passenger seat and rear outboard seats was not clearly marked.

Pedestrian
The bumper scores maximum points for its protection of pedestrians' legs but the front edge of the bonnet scored nothing. The bonnet surface was rated as predominantly poor for the protection it offered to the head of a struck adult.
