The Plurielsís body and mechanics are similar to the CitroŽn C3, which gained four stars in earlier Euro NCAP tests. Like the C3, the Pluriel gave a balanced performance. Its body withstood the frontal impact well, suffering only minor deformation of its safety cell for passengers. Its restraint systems worked effectively, transmitting only low levels of impact force to occupantsí chests. Protection in the side impact proved good and the standard head-protecting airbag further reduced the risk of injury. The child restraints performed patchily, but pedestrians received above-average protection.
