Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs. Chevrolet showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and those sat in different positions. All body areas were well protected in the side barrier test and the car scored maximum points in this test. In the more severe side pole impact, dummy readings of rib compression indiciated marginal protection of the chest area. The front seats and head restraints provided marginal protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear end collision.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled by means of a switch, allowing a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. However, information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not clear and the system was not rewarded. Clear warnings are given of the dangers of using a rearward facing restraint in that seat without first disabling the airbag.

Pedestrian

The front edge of the bonnet provided uniformly poor protection to pedestrians. In most areas likely to be struck by a child's head, the bonnet provided good protection. However, predominantly poor protection was provided in those areas likely to be struck by and adult's head.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment, as is a seatbelt reminder for the driver and front passenger seats. A speed limitiation device is not available.
