The passenger compartment remained stable during the impact. The driver's knees were well protected by an airbag mounted in the lower dashboard. Citroen showed that the airbag would also protect occupants who were larger or smaller than the dummy used in the test, and those sat in different seating positions. The passenger was well restrained and his knees did not get close to the dashboard. The C5 scored maximum points in the side impact and pole tests. The C5 was awarded no points for the protection offered by the front edge of the bumper to pedestrians' legs. The bonnet surface was also rated as predominantly poor in the area likely to be struck by an adult's head. However, the bumper scored maximum points.
