The passenger compartment became unstable in the frontal impact and the D-MAX didn't achieve the minimum number of points in this test to get a three star rating, even though it scored enough points overall. Protection of the driver's head was rated as weak. The final star is struck through because dummy readings in the neck and chest indicated an unacceptably high risk of life-threatening injury. Structures in the dashboard presented a risk of injury to the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger. Protection of the driver's lower legs was jeopardised by excessive upward movement of the brake pedal. Protection of the driver's feet was poor, owing to a ruptured footwell and pedal movement. A head-protecting airbag is not available on the D-MAX so a pole test was not performed. The D-MAX scored no points for the protection offered to pedestrians' legs or to a child's head. The bonnet surface was rated as predominantly weak for the protection it offered the head of a struck adult.
