The occupant compartment and driver footwell remained stable during the frontal impact. The deployment speed of the passenger's airbag gave cause for concern over possible injuries to the passenger's face and eyes. The steering column, ignition barrel and power steering motor presented a potential risk of injury to the driver's femurs. The glove box lid and its support brackets presented a risk to the passenger's femurs. As a result both the driver's and passenger's femurs were rated as marginal. In the side impact the chest was rated as marginal due to the high load transmitted through the driver's spine. As the vehicle was not equipped with a head protecting curtain airbag no pole test was performed. The bonnet leading edge offered only a poor level of protection for a pedestrian's legs and the bonnet top where a child's head could impact was also rated as predominantly poor.
