Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. However, the steering column and its lock, and the end of the facia were posed a risk of injury to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions and the score was penalised. The vehicle scored maximum points in the side barrier test, with good protection of all body regions. A side impact thorax airbag and a head-protecting curtain airbag are both available as an option but were not fitted to the test vehicle. As the curtain airbag is not standard equipment a pole test was not performed. Protection against whiplash injury in a rear-end collision was rated as marginal for both the front and rear seats.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing restraint to be used in that seating position. However, the markings for the switch are not sufficiently clear and the system was not rewarded. All of the restraint types for which the vehicle is designed could be properly installed and accommodated.

Pedestrian

The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs and scored maximum points. The performance of the front edge of the bonnet was more mixed: good in some areas but weak or poor in others. The bonnet surface provided mostly good protection to the head of a struck pedestrian but poor results were recorded at the bonnet edges and on the stiff windscreen pillars.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment. Early vehicles had a seatbelt reminder for the driver's seat only. From VIN VF37J9HP0EJ725408, the system covers both the driver and front passenger seats. A driver-set speed limitation deviceis available as an option and met Euro NCAP's requirements. The Berlingo does not have an autonomous braking system or lane support.
