Euro NCAP allowed a repeat of the frontal impact test after the incorrect load-limiter was fitted in the original test. Fiat checked all cars from the start of production and has now resolved the production fault which led to the error. In the side impact a rear door became unlatched, for which the car was penalised. The visual signal for the seatbelt reminder was moved to a more prominent position to meet Euro NCAP's requirements. The tested car had driver and passenger dual-stage front airbags; side-impact and head-protecting curtain airbags; driver's knee airbags; front seat-belt pre-tensioners and load limiters; ISOFIX anchorages with top-tethers in rear outboard seats; driver and passenger seatbelt reminder system; ABS, Brake Assist, Electronic Brake Distribution and ESP.
