The passenger compartment remained stable during the front impact test. Dummy readings indicated that the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger were well protected. Honda showed that occupants of different sizes and those sitting in different positions would be similarly well protected. The passenger's chest was compressed more than the driver's and this value was used for the calculation of the rating. In the pedestrian tests, the bumper scored maximum points for the protection offered to pedestrians' legs in the area rated by Euro NCAP. However, additional tests showed that some areas beyond the central zone provided poor protection. Most of the zones tested in the area of the bonnet where a child's head might strike also scored maximum points. However, the front edge of the bonnet was rated as poor.
