Compare with other cars in the Super Mini category

The car tested is substantially the same in safety structure and equipment that was tested in 1996. The two tests scored about the same as each other. The frontal impact performance was weak but was better in side impact. The 1-year-old's restraint worked reasonably well but the 3-year-old's had limitations. Pedestrian protection was dire. Overall only just a three star car.
