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 dummies. CitroŽn showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. in the side barrier test, all critical body regions were well protected apart from the chest, protection of which was adequate. In the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest area was marginal but that of other body regions was good. Protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear end collision was good for 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. Clear information is provided to the driver about the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the child restraint types for which the car is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the car.


The bumper scored maximum points, with good protection in all areas tested. The front edge of the bonnet was also good in all tests. For a pedestrian's head, the bonnet provided predominantly good or adequate protection with some poor results recorded only on the stiff windscreen pillars.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment. A seatbelt reminder is standard for the front and rear seats. A driver-set speed limitation device is also fitted as standard and met Euro NCAP's requirements for systems of this kind.
