The 147 did very poorly in the frontal impact, exposing its occupants to serious risks and losing all but three marks available in testing. The car's safety cell became compromised because the screen pillar and door failed along spot weld seams and crimped seams and the beam running behind the fascia was driven rearwards relative to the screen pillars. The safety restraints did not protect the driver adequately and his head struck the fascia. By contrast, it protected well in the side impact, gaining a maximum score for the test. Its head-protecting airbag proved itself highly effective.
