Comments
Front impact
The occupant compartment and driver footwell remained stable during the impact. The steering column presented a potential risk of injury to the driver's femurs. The inboard edge of the glove box lid and the end of facia presented a risk to the passenger's femurs resulting in the passenger's femurs being rated as marginal.

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 users 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 rear outboard seats was clearly marked to aid users in the installation of a child seat.

Pedestrian
The bonnet leading edge offered only a poor level of protection for a pedestrians' legs. The bonnet top was also rated as predominantly poor for the protection offered to a both a child and adult's head.
