Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection for the knees and femurs of both the driver and there were no hazadrs to occupants of different sizes or to those sat in different seating positions. The Orlando scored maximum points for the protection it provided in the side barrier test. The front seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries in a rear-end collision.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. The switch is clearly marked and clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag, and the system was rewarded. Permanently attached labels clearly warn of the dangers of using a rearward facing child seat in that position without first disabling the airbag.


The entire front edge of the bonnet, where a pedestrian's hip and pelvis would contact, was poor. In most areas likely to be struck by the head of a child, the protection was mostly good with some poor performing areas. In those areas likely to be struck by an adult's head, the bonnet offered only mostly poor protection.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard on the Orlando and met Euro NCAP's requirements. There is a seatbelt reminder system for the driver and passenger, but not for the rear seats. The Orlando is not available with a speed limitation device.
