The Brava was awarded two stars for frontal- and side-impact protection but, with only a small improvement, it would have been awarded a third star. The car's structure became overloaded in the frontal impact and there were significant intrusion problems. However, even without a side airbag, the car meets side-impact legislation to take effect across Europe for new models from October 1998. Finally, the bonnet's leading edge provided better than average pedestrian protection.
