Although the passenger compartment remained stablein the frontal impact test, spot welds in the driver's footwell became separated during the test. This suggests that structures in this area might become unstable if exposed to the greater loading which might arise from a slightly higher impact speed for example. Dummy readings in the test did not expose problems with the protection of the knees or femurs. However, a knee bolster in the facia was considered to pose a risk of injury to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. For side impact, no pole test was performed as the tested vehicle was not equipped with the optional head protecting side impact airbag. The optional thorax airbag was also not fitted to the test car. In the pedestrian protection tests the bumper and front edge of the bonnet scored no points. The protection offered to the head of a struck child was poor in every area tested and was poor in most areas for an adult's head.
