The Punto was awarded two stars for protection in frontal and side impact. All the new frontal-impact criteria were met apart from rearward movement of the steering wheel. In the frontal impact, the major problems related to intrusion and the instability of the passenger compartment. There were problems for the lower limbs and attention is required to the knee impact areas. The unstable head contact on the airbag suggests potential problems for different-sized drivers and those in different seating positions. In side impact, the greatest improvements could be expected from reducing rib loading while controlling the pelvis loading.
