The Picasso's side airbag should protect the driver's head and upper torso. But in the pole impact, it extended only as high as his shoulder. While it still protected him in this instance, it could not be relied on to keep him from harm in some other types of crash. For this reason, Euro NCAP awarded only one of the two points available for this part of the test.
