The Punto gave a strong performance, revealing no areas of real concern. The cabin remained stable and could still be opened after the frontal impact. Less good was that the passenger's head hit the facia; this would have been more serious had such an impact happened to the other side of the car. The centre rear seat belt was of a simple two-point lap type that, it has been shown, can cause serious abdominal and spinal injuries. The child restraints had poor instruction labels and did not give very good sideways support: they allowed the dummies' torsos to come out of the seatbelts.
