The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. However, there was insufficient pressure in the driver's airbag to prevent the head from bottoming out and contacting the steering wheel. The knees and femurs of the front seat passengers were well protected. Ford showed that a similar level of protection would be provided for occupants of different sizes or those sat in different positions. The Kuga scored maximum points in the side impact and pole tests. In the pedestrian protection tests the bumper scored maximum points for protection of pedestrians' legs. However, the front edge of the bonnet was rated as predominantly poor, as was the protection offered to the head of a struck adult by the bonnet surface.
