Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Although the car tested had two separate front seats, the passenger airbag is wide enough to protect a third, centre occupant in cars fitted with a bench-style passenger seat. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and front passenger. For the outboard leg of the front passenger, the facia end posed a risk of injury but the dashboard was otherwise considered to provide good protection to those of other sizes and those sat in different positions. In the side barrier test, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other body regions was good. No pole test was done as a head-protecting airbag did not meet fitment requirements. A geometric assessment of the front and rear seats revealed poor protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end collision.

Child occupant

The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing restraint to be used in that seating position. However, information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not sufficiently clear, and the system was not rewarded. The dangers of using a rearward-facing restraint in that seat without first disabling the airbag are clearly indicated inside the vehicle.

Pedestrian

The bumper provided poor protection to pedestrians' legs in all areas tested and scored no points. Assessment of the front edge of the bonnet was not appropriate owing to the shape and height of the vehicle. In those areas likely to be struck by the head of a child or that of an adult, protection was predominantly poor.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is available as an option but did not meet Euro NCAP's fitment requirements, and was not assessed. There is a seatbelt reminder system for the driver's seat and a driver-set speed limitation device is standard equipment on more than half of vehicles sold, and met Euro NCAP's technical requirements.
