Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the front passengers' knees and femurs. Additional tests demonstrated that similar protection would be offered to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. The car scored maximum points in the side barrier impact, all body regions being well protected. In the more severe side pole test, protection of most body regions was again good, and that of the chest was adequate. Protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision was good.

Child occupant

A switch is available as an option which disables the passenger airbag, allowing a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. The test cars were not equipped with the switch and no assessment was done. The dangers of using a rearward facing restraint in the passenger seat without first disabling the airbag were not clearly indicated.


The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs in most of the area tested, but was poor in others. The front edge of the bonnet was predominantly poor. In most areas likely to be struck by a child's head, the bonnet offered good levels of protection. However, the protection offered to the head of an adult was rated as poor for most of the areas tested.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is fitted as standard equipment on all variants. The front seats have a seatbelt reminder system as standard. A driver-set speed limitation device is available as an option.
