Honda can claim to be the first manufacturer to produce a design that protects pedestrians properly. It performed so well that it came close to achieving a fourth star. Unfortunately the child restraints did not protect well. They were a new design using two-point ISOFIX mountings and a top tether. The cabin remained virtually distortion-free in the frontal impact, which is remarkable for a small car.
