Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Although dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and front passenger, structures in the dashboard were thought to present a risk to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. There was considerable deformation in driver's footwell area, with tearing of the metal in places. The car was penalised for this collapse, resulting in the protection of the driver's feet and ankles being rated as poor. In the side barrier test, the car scored maximum points, all body areas being well protected. However, in the more severe side pole test, dummy readings of rib compression indicated weak protection of the driver's chest. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing restraint to be used in that seating position. However, the information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not sufficiently clear. The dangers of using a rearward facing restraint in that seat without first disabling the airbag are clearly explained in the languages of the countries in which the car is sold.

Pedestrian

The protection provided by the bumper to pedestrians' legs was rated predominantly as marginal. The front edge of the bonnet scored no points, giving poor protection in all of the areas tested. In most areas likely to be struck by the head of a child, the bonnet provided good protection but was predominantly poor in those areas likely to be struck by an adult.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment on the EC7, and the system met Euro NCAP's test requirements. A seatbelt reminder is standard for the driver, passenger and rear seats. The EC7 has a driver-set speed limitation device as standard but the system did not meet Euro NCAP's requirements.
