The Atoz's body became unstable in the frontal impact, resulting in large steering wheel movements and substantial brake pedal intrusion. This and high loading on the driver's chest led to a poor performance overall. However, the side impact was very creditable and only the risk of chest injury lost it points, although the driver's head struck a glancing blow on the centre pillar. However, the child restraints did not perform well especially in the frontal impact, where the heads of the dummies were allowed to go too far forward. Pedestrian protection was average for this size of car.
